Here’s What Men Who Hated The Gillette Ad Apparently Saw (HBO)

Gillette — the best a man can get — is famous for their razors. And for putting as many blades as they possibly can in said razors.

This week, the company’s become famous for another reason: their latest ad campaign — titled “The best a man can be” — which calls out some of the worst traits of masculinity, including catcalling and sexual assault, and referencing the Me Too movement.

And you believe, the ad’s attracted controversy. Because not all men … is the sentiment most online comments seem to be echoing. If you look at the all-important YouTube metrics, the video has amassed more than 13 million views in three days, and has 326,000 likes, compared to more than 700,000 dislikes on the platform. Though those numbers are also part of the controversy. Commenters are accusing the brand of deleting dislikes, as well as deleting negative comments below the video.

Prominent defenders of men are speaking out against the ad, saying they won’t be lectured to. Prominent British man-defender Piers Morgan wrote a column calling the ad the “worst attack on men this week,” saying Gillette’s commercials, apparently until now, “have unashamedly celebrated men and masculinity. You watch them and feel good about being male.” Prominent advocate of boys cleaning their rooms, Jordan Peterson, also called for a boycott of Gillette’s parent company.

What some people are seeing as a brand using its huge platform to spread a positive message, others are interpreting as a vicious attack on an entire gender.

So here it: the version of the ad that manly, angry, extremely online men apparently saw, sending them into conniptions.

Jordan Peterson Is Canada’s Most Infamous Intellectual (HBO)

Until just a few years ago, Dr. Jordan B. Peterson was an obscure professor at the University of Toronto. The clinical psychologist has since become an infamous intellectual, particularly across the internet and to an audience of young men, in part because of his controversial ideas and critiques about gender and culture of political correctness on college campuses.

His new book, “12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos,” currently ranks at the tops of the bestseller lists. The book is a mix of pop psychology and self-help, and has prompted a sold-out tour in Canada and the U.S..

VICE News attended Dr. Peterson’s talk in New York City, and traveled to his hometown of Toronto to sit-down and discuss the psychologist’s recent work and rapid rise to celebrity.
