According to Twitter users, the race to be the world’s most woke company is on, following revelations US companies Best Buy and Levi Strauss offered employees counselling in the wake of the not guilty Rittenhouse verdict.
According to the Daily Mail, the companies sent out memos telling their employees that counselling was available, with Levis offering sessions with a ‘racial trauma specialist’ to ‘encourage healing.’
Best Buy meanwhile sent a memo from the company’s Chief Inclusion, Diversity & Talent Officer Mark Irvin, who encouraged those affected to ‘take advantage of our mental health services, including the Life Solutions counselling services.’
The backlash on social media was severe especially from those who believed the verdict was right, while others cancelled orders or said they’d never buy from either company again.
Let me get this straight. Best Buy complains about looting, then offers mental health services for people upset about the kyle rittenhouse verdict, which was literally a case of self defense by a person trying to prevent looting and rioting…Yo @BestBuy is your CEO ok?

.@BestBuy's Mark Irvin believes self-defense is "another difficult moment for our nation", and the Rittenhouse verdict was "challenging and hurtful". Mark's ignorant ass wanted "better outcomes".
Imagine announcing to your employees that you wished the pedophile had killed Kyle. https://t.co/KgIRe7tJJG

If the Best Buy corporate screwballs are offering employee counseling for the Rittenhouse verdict, they’d better damned well be offering 6 months off with full pay for their employees near Waukesha, WI.

Simple- don’t buy Levi’s. Pains me to say that since I have family that retired from Levi Strauss but they wouldn’t approve of this.
