Celebrity tampon user and Tampax spokesperson Amy Schumer is getting blamed for a nationwide shortage of feminine supplies.
The Schumer Tampon Shortage Connection:
The 41-year-old actress starred in a series of Tampax commercials in 2020. As a result, tampons became so hip and trendy that demand outpaced supply.
“Retail sales growth has exploded,” since the Schumer campaign aired, Tampax maker Proctor & Gamble told Time. A spokesperson says “demand is up 7.7%” over the last two years and they are working 24/7 at the tampon factory to keep up.
This really adds to the “super sexy” factor in Schumer’s celebrity, no?
The Hole In The “Schumer’s To Blame Theory” Is This:
Schumer only represents one brand, and the shelves are bare whether you buy Kotex, Tampax, or a generic box.
MSN says a supply-chain issue is the most likely culprit.
The Inevitable Conclusion:
This is the REAL culprit behind the tampon shortage…
Thanks a lot, Pete Buttigieg!
