WTF America?? We're better than this.
I recently saw the most disrespectful and misleading commercial ad of my entire life. AND I’VE SEEN CIGARETTE ADS FROM THE 60s! What am I talking about?
The SHAMWOW Mask
Toted for stopping viruses with the power of Zinc (insert deep movie trailer voice and distant echoes). While zinc is known for it’s antiviral and antibacterial properties, there is no proof that supports airborne filtration…
OF A BRAND NEW, NOVEL VIRUS.
It’s misleading. Not only that, but it’s BEYOND disrespectful to Asian Americans and Asians abroad. At one point the Shamwow guy says…
“I like Chinese people too, but come on.”
Imagine if he said, “I like black people too, but come on,” or “I like Jews too, but come on.” There would be an outrage and uproar. This should be addressed with the same fervor.
We ALL understand from the data presented that the virus began in China, but blaming all Chinese people for their government’s actions is silly. Especially since
MANY CHINESE JOURNALISTS WERE MURDERED/MISSING TRYING TO TELL THE WORLD THE TRUTH
In my opinion, this mask belongs on the long FDA list of fraudulent COVID products. Watch it for yourself. Do you think they crossed the line here?
