People on Twitter took delight Wednesday in roasting a man who put his razor in a toilet bowl to protest the viral Gillette advertisement that took a stand against toxic masculinity.

“It’s protest against a commercial containing every negative stereotype ever aimed at men as though we were all like that,” Twitter user @warroom wrote. “I thought liberals were against gender stereotyping but I guess they’re only against SOME stereotypes.”

But people on Twitter were more concerned with whether the person would flush the razor down the toilet (and presumably break the toilet), or if he would have to put his hand in the toilet bowl to retrieve the razor.

Even a sewage company got in on the trolling action.

After the concerned inquiries, @warroom reassured everyone that, no, he was not dumb enough to actually flush his razor down the toilet.

He wasn’t not the only one to protest the company by discarding its products.

“I don’t always throw new unused items away! But when I do they are Gillette!” user @its_tim3672 wrote.

The Gillette advertisement garnered mixed reactions from the public when it was released on Monday, spurning a movement to #BoycottGillette who apparently didn’t agree with Gillette’s platform of “the best in men.”

Another day, another group of people throwing out products they already bought to protest companies they don’t agree with.
