A new Gillette ad that shows a transgender man, artist and activist Samson Bonkeabantu Brown, being taught to shave by his father has been lauded for being inclusive to the LGBTQ community.



But conservative commentator Tomi Lahren has criticized the campaign, saying that it is “a little much to normalize and promote high-school-aged kids undergoing hormone therapy and gender reassignment.” (A spokeswoman for Gillette declined to share Bonkeabantu Brown’s exact age out of respect for his privacy, but confirmed to Yahoo Lifestyle that he is not a teenager.)


While other conservatives have threatened to boycott the grooming brand, which has pledged to step away from “toxic masculinity,” Lahren’s tweet drew swift backlash. Critics have accused her of “reacting out of fear or prejudice,” and argued that the ad would help transgender youths.
