As part of the conversation created around the new Gillette advertisement/film, I have noticed that any attempt to post information around how Gillette got in trouble in 2018 over false advertising is shadow banned. Google Gillette and made in the USA and you can see lots of info, including a letter from the Federal Trade Commission to Gillette telling them to stop deceiving customers.

YouTube and or Gillette are blocking this information from being shared. To test this, try adding a comment about this on YouTube and see what happens.

    "Why is" questions are usually going to be out of bounds, and making an unsupported claim that "you have noticed" also does not really fit the parameters of this stack exchange. Voting to close. – PoloHoleSet Feb 8 at 15:53

  • If you can find a notable source making this same claim as you, cite it here, then we can answer. Such is the rule for this site. – fredsbend Feb 8 at 16:07

    I think you should try to rephrase your question with a clear "notable claim" with some source(s), because this is how Skeptics.SE works mainly. See help center – Pac0 Feb 8 at 16:07
  • Because companies are free to delete comments from their marketing platforms as they see fit? YouTube as a corporation is unlikely to be involved at all. – Tashus Feb 8 at 16:26
