Woman rants against Tide because they featured a lesbian couple and their black children in an ad

Social media users including Chrissy Teigen have called out a woman as a ‘Karen’ and a ‘white supremacist’ after she ranted about a Tide commercial that features a white lesbian couple with two black children and promised to boycott the brand.

The woman, Raven Constantine, shared her all-caps diatribe on the social media network Gab, where she posts right-wing memes, clips, and rants about 100 times a day.

In this one, written Wednesday, she blasted detergent brand Tide for pushing her ‘too far’ with the commercial, saying that it ‘doesn’t represent her or her family’ and accusing the brand of promoting ‘the genocide of her race.’ 

While her own followers approved of her message, thousands of Twitter users are mocking her as ‘psychotic narcissist’ and calling her a racist who went ‘full Karen’ over a single ad.

‘See, I’m a white woman with [a] white husband and white children.

‘Your product doesn’t represent me and my family so here’s where were part ways, [I’m] sorry, but I feel a detergent should talk about what it does, what it costs, how it makes the clothes cleaner.

‘I do not need to support a company [that] clearly cares so little about detergent and more about politics and the genocide of my race.

‘For 75 years Tide ads depicted white wives doing the laundry for their white husbands and white kids. Someone else gets depicted in an ad once and this lady freaks out,’ added another commenter.

‘I thought laundry works the same way for everyone regardless of race and orientation but maybe I’m missing something?’ wrote one more.

‘I fear that there is no detergent out there that will remove hate stains from someone’s soul,’ said yet another.

One wondered, ‘How did she get from lesbians to genocide? Lol.’
