Many were quick to point the finger at a Gillette ad which became a viral controversy.

The common archetypical “millennial” is a highly fragile and emotional character, someone who can break quite easily.

The ruthless dictator established an entire socio-political ideology, one which resulted in an estimated 30,000,000 deaths. Historian Frank Dikötter contends that this genocide may have been one of the worst in world history, and its lasting implications are still seen today. The sinister Laogai labor camps continue to exist to this day. The Laogai system is considered the largest network of forced labor camps in the world.
