Gillette's Trans teen's first shave ad- Cue the faux outrage

Gillette Ad Features Black Trans Teen Shaving for the First Time

With Pride season soon upon us, we’ll soon be inundated with rainbow apparel and items from brands falling over themselves to remind us all how inclusive and woke they all are.

In the latest ad from Gillette, posted to the brand’s Facebook on Thursday, Samson Bonkeabantu Brown, a trans teen from Canada, is shaving for the first time with his dad nearby.

Take a look at the ad—and the joy on Brown’s face—and try to keep it together.
