An online petition has been created asking Gillette to drop their partnership with the New England Patriots.
The petition has more than 14,600 signatures as of late this morning, was created as a result of team owner Robert Kraft being charged in a case linked to human sex trafficking.
The petition reads as follows:
Gillette, the company behind popular shaving and personal care products, recently changed its tagline to “The Best Men Can Be.” But more than just a tagline, the statement represents the brand’s commitment to promoting healthy representations of what masculinity means — a decision made in response to the #MeToo movement and news story after news story showing men not behaving their best.
It’s nice to see a brand use their influence for good, but now it’s time to see if they will actually back up their words with action.
That’s why we’re asking Gillette to stop sponsoring Gillette Stadium, the home stadium for the New England Patriots — owned by Robert Kraft, who was just arrested during a human trafficking sting operation.
As of now, there are only 485 SUPPORTERS IN MASSACHUSETTS, which makes sense.
Of course nobody in Patriots Nation is offended by this scandal.
