“jokes apart, chores are not gender specific👏 Ghar ssabhahai, gGharke kKambBhisabke hain,” while another added,
“This is a joke right?”
One comment read,
“But the product is for the dishes.. how.. what.. what…?? Its not… No that’s not how this works..” a netizen added, “Are you serious??? In 2022?? Change the bottle from yellow to black to ‘feel masculine’. SLOW CLAP… WHAT THE ACTUAL F***?”
Here’s what others commented:
“For men… Bc bartan ke bhi gender hai.”
“Yeh toh ekdum galat kar dia. Kaam ko genderize kar lia. Matlab black bole toh manly hogaya. C’mon! C’mon! Yeh kya kia.”
“Is line me kab se aa gye sir…lots of experience carried ..#salute 😳😍👏🔥”
Even though it was an attempt to normalize household chores (dishwashing) and represent ‘gel for men, the detergent brand promoted another stereotype by making the gel color black.
