Tampax sparks outrage with ‘disgusting’ tweet about ‘being with women’

Tampax has come under fire for a “gross” and “inappropriate” tweet about “being a woman” that appears to have been inspired by the infamous 1989 “Tampongate” phone call between King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla.

The tampon company has gone viral after putting its own spin on the popular “You are in their DMs” memes about flirtatious approaches on social media, but critics have accused the brand of taking the joke too far.

“You’re in their DMs. We’re in it. We’re not the same,” Tampax tweeted on Monday, explicitly referring to how his tampons are used.

The post has more than deserved 317,600 likes and 38,500 retweets, proving there were plenty of fans, but not everyone was amused by the insinuations.

The tampon company made explicit reference to how its products are used in a tweet Monday, writing, “You’re in their DMs. We’re in it. We are not the same’

“You are so rude and insulting. Only a MAN would tweet this. We’re done here,” one Twitter user commented, adding the hashtags “#boycotttampax” and “#Tampax.”

‘Yucks! This is beyond inappropriate of a company,” another agreed, with another commenting, “You know young girls are using your product, this is so inappropriate.”

Many critics called on the company to remove the tweet, which has yet to be deleted despite the outcry.

“Tampax, I know you’re trying to be cute and relevant, but this only implicitly reinforces misogynists’ idea that menstrual products are sexual in nature. It’s harmful to people,” one Twitter user insisted.

The post has garnered more than 317,600 likes and 38,500 retweets, proving there were plenty of fans, but critics accused the brand of going too far

“This is misogyny. Remove it. It literally kills women and non-men,” another person added.

Others, however, found the humor in the joke, with one fan noting that “Tampax should give their social media manager a raise for these tweets.”

‘Can we laugh at this? Can we laugh, I don’t know the rules anymore,’ someone else asked.

Tampax doubled down by retweeting its own joke, saying it “refused to let Twitter shut down before we shared this tweet” — a reference to rumors that the social media platform is shutting down.

DailyMail.com has reached out to a Tampax spokesperson for comment.

The controversial tweet has also been linked to King Charles’s leaked 1989 telephone conversation with future queen consort Camilla, which is depicted in the fifth season of “The Crown.”

‘Oh God. I’ll live in your pants or something. It would be much easier!’ said Charles, who was married to Princess Diana at the time.

A smiling Camilla replied, “What are you going to change, underpants?” [Both laugh]. Oh, you come back like a pair of underpants.’

“Or, God forbid, a Tampax. Just my luck!’ said Charles, to which Camilla replied, “You’re a complete idiot!” Oh, what a great idea.’

The conversation was recorded by an amateur radio enthusiast who claimed to have come across the pair’s conversation while switching between audio channels.

West shared that he has changed his mind about the conversation after previously feeling it was “nasty and deeply, deeply embarrassing.”

“When you look back and have to play it, you know that the blame was not on these two people, two lovers, who had a private conversation,” he said. Weekly entertainment.

‘What’s real [clear now] is how invasive and disgusting the press attention was to it, that they literally printed it out and you could call a number and listen to the actual band. I think it made me extremely sympathetic to those two and what they’d been through.”

He added that Williams is also sympathetic to the Queen Consort, saying they both wanted to “do right” with the couple.
