Something curious seems to have happened in the market as of late. I first noticed it with the video game Battlefield 5 pre-release when the people trying to convince their perspective customers to buy their product actually said “If you don’t like it, don’t buy it.” This is a curious way to market a product, to say the least. Gillette decided to alienate their customer base recently by virtually accusing most males of being sexist pigs. Marvel Comics did pretty much the same years earlier, and the result was a crash in sales. It has since expanded to include films with Brie Larson excluding and insulting most of the established MCEU customer base before the release of Captain Marvel next week. This resulted in a downshift of box office expectations and Rotten Tomatoes removing the “Want to see/Don’t want to see” options on their site–making it as useless to a marketing campaign as Brie Larson insults is to movie presales.
Why is this happening? It’s got to be more religiously motivated than monetarily motivated, and it’s destroying industries. Interested in your opinions. Please leave them below:
