I understand and am not arguing for or against that.
I still think that particular ads' wording in the script came across as forced. That's my opinion.
Eh, it's not my battle as I've gotten the majority of my Shea Moisture products in gift bags and only used the lotions and soaps. But, as I previously said, the "whining" is indicative of a deeper issue that I won't address now. I will say that I find the whole idea of the "natural hair movement," the obession with hair typing, the "my hair is a struggle and deserves special attention" narrative along with other things to be ... rudimentary and exhausting. This Shea Moisture fallout and responses to it is an example.
Again, I think black businesses should get money! You are right about fashion houses. Black women were running around spending their last dime on Prada items when it hadn't featured a black model in its show in over a decade.
Lot of scripts are forced, that particular ad wasn't meant for me so the lines are none of my business. The other ads they made I more than relate to. It's especially whiny especially when people have taken it upon themselves to harass you tubers and bloggers on their platforms like lunatics for 1. "not a quick enough response" 2. "not a response they believe is good enough in their eyes" 3. Not showing a video of themselves foaming at the mouth at Shea Moisture and a clip of them throwing their stuff in the trash.
Supposedly all for black women yet Naptural who is expecting is supposed to leave coins despite doing an ad with them with her own experience. They're supposedly for black women getting money yet upset that this particular one isn't behaving like they believe she should, lets pretend she does have affiliation with them, y'all gonna give her the money by breaking her contract? and I repeat this coming from the same bloody people who just 2-3 weeks ago were bragging that in their own business or their soon to be businesses they will parlay money towards getting white staff so it won't mess with their cash flow, yes because giving opportunities to black sales people would ruin their coins..but God Forbid others do the same and try to protect their money.
Not to mention Marc Jacobs/Guerlain/JefferreStar/Kardashians have said questionable ish about black people in general yet if you go to MU forum people still there listing products they've bought RECENTLY from these brands. Im sure people are deluding themselves with the "but we expect that from white people"..ok so the correct thing is to still give them your money? They're the ones worthy of "forgiveness" huh. lol whatever
