OH MY ****** GEEE! You think that's bad, you wait, there's this guy from South America who killed all these dudes, Chad Guerrero I think he's called, and his face has been used by every clothing company ever! Totally woke bro.

Thinking to myself:

- Retailer creates new underwear range to match skin tones of it's customers
- Idea was inspired by the killing of George Floyd
- Retailer admits it did not see a gap in the market for its underwear until a black man was killed :eek:

I must take the day off work to sharpen my pitchfork!

OCUK! We need a pitchfork emoji!

I'm going to pretend I'm really, really, outraged by this! I'm pretending to be absolutely livid here!

Definitely nothing more than virtue signalling. Wtf has underwear got to do with a dead criminal?

Nothing. It's the Daily Mail that made this product line about George Floyd and looks like it's got the usual suspects all frothy mouthed, as per usual. The M&S press release doesn't mention George Floyd. You've fallen for it again.

Sounds more like big brand cashing in on big story rather than wokery.

Have the DM just made this up then?

M&S – the UK's biggest bra and knickers retailer – said the range was partly inspired by 'the global conversation on racial inequality following the horrific death' of Mr Floyd in Minneapolis, US, last year.

Where's the range for white people? Perhaps they ought to be inspired by Alan Turing, someone who actually did something honourable with their life.

Whiter skin tones are covered as part of the same range. **** me, try using your brain occasionally instead of being constantly triggered.
