SOAP NEXT: Unilever to Scrub Word ‘Normal’ from Dove, Other Products Because it ‘Excludes’ People

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.10.21

Unilever -which owns skincare brands like Dove, Axe Body Spray, and others- announced Tuesday they will no longer use the word “normal” as the term is often deployed to “exclude” people.

“The beauty and personal-care company Unilever said on Tuesday that it would no longer use the word ‘normal’ on its products and in its advertising, following a study that revealed it makes most people feel excluded,” reports the New York Times.

“Unilever, a London-based company that owns Dove, Axe, Sunsilk and Vaseline, among other personal-care brands, also said it would not digitally alter the body shape, size and skin color of models in its advertising as part of its Positive Beauty initiative, according to a news release. And the company promised to increase the number of ads featuring underrepresented people, without specifying which groups,” adds the Times.

“We know that removing ‘normal’ from our products and packaging will not fix the problem alone, but it is an important step forward,” Sunny Jain, Unilever’s president for beauty and personal care, said in the statement.

DUMBO DENIED! Disney Pulls Flying Elephant Over ‘Racist’ Characters, ‘Harmful Stereotypes’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.10.21

The Disney Corporation moved in recent weeks to limit access for younger viewers to classic cartoons ‘Dumbo,’ ‘Peter Pan,’ and other titles over “racist stereotypes” and other content.

According to the Disney website, ‘Peter Pan’ was included because “The film portrays Native people in a stereotypical manner that reflects neither the diversity of Native peoples nor their authentic cultural traditions. It shows them speaking in an unintelligible language and repeatedly refers to them as ‘redskins,’ an offensive term. Peter and the Lost Boys engage in dancing, wearing headdresses and other exaggerated tropes.”

“Per the initiative, children under 7 will be forbidden from watching ‘Dumbo,’ ‘Peter Pan’ ‘Swiss Family Robinson’ and the ‘The Aristocats.’ Settings on the app will prevent the movies from even showing up on the young viewers’ profiles. Disney explained its rationale behind each film’s removal on the kid-focused Stories Matter section of their website,” reports the New York Post.

“The leader of the group in Dumbo is Jim Crow, which shares the name of laws that enforced racial segregation in the Southern United States,” per the site.

Other films were removed for their depiction of Native Americans.

“These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now,” the advisories read. “Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together.”
