That would not have happened. Check the hashtag I posted. The people crying the most about the sacking are very strange white people.

@occult

i mean i know your whole gimmick is to have whacky zany opinions on everything but just so we're clear in why this makes sense i'll explain

in the case of L'oreal by keeping someone who has clearly said controversial things on social media they run the risk of detering a portion of their clientele from buying their product and establishing a reputation for allowing racism so long as it's coming from a minority. as a business why would you want to run that risk? not doing anything about it will undoubtly make it seem like they don't have issues with what she said.

and dont give me any bs about how this is what's wrong with capitalism or how businesses are corrupted and in for themselves or w/e else because the bottom line is businesses are started in order to turn a profit, and L'oreal are more concerned with turning profit than they are allowing their employees to say outlandish **** on social media.

unfortunately in the 21st century bc of social media any dummy with a twitter account can start a hashtag so now a vocal minority thinks its ok to say racist things about white people i guess.

personally idc what she thinks, but as a face of a company you need the common sense to understand that you represent them in every aspect with your actions.

No, I'm saying what if she had NOT been fired? Would you not then have people saying "Oh if a white person said all blacks are racist he/she/it/they/whatever would have been fired, why wasn't she?" Damn right you would.

Qwerty

L'Oréal's very existence is based on exploiting the insecurities of women. I don't think L'Oréal should even exist so there's so little common ground it's hard to discuss.

I know I want to be able to pay my bills and say whatever the **** I want so that's what I want for that trans women - that's all - what's financially sound for the company doesn't hold weight with me. I know you think that's a predictable thing for me to say but whatever.
