I’m torn between my happiness at scamming money out of those idiots who think that the spray is a real thing, and my feeling that the people who marketed this should be strung up.

It’s a clever scam. I imagine it gets some sales as a novelty item, and as well some from nutters who actually think Muslim Rape gangs are a thing, and if they were such folks would actually be devout enough to care about pork.

I would hope it does more sales as a novelty item, than serious buyers. I am sure I’d be disappointed.

It’s not. It’s Islamophobic and prone to stirring up violence against people.

I just got off the phone with an amazon customer service rep. She has reported the listing and will also be discussing it at a meeting she has at 10am with her manager.
This is disgusting
I do not think listing the seller info if anyone else wants to report it is doxxing. If it is, I will remove it.

By the time someone is a rapist I’m pretty sure religious prohibitions aren’t going to have any bearing on the situation.

Can I get a version with garlic instead, just in case the rape gang consists of vampires?

I’m guessing this is another one of those right wing media things where you have to be living in their alternate reality bubble to have even the slightest clue WTF they’re talking about?

It’s a right wing meme that is based on a few real-life crimes, plus all the hysteria that the rage machine can whip up.
Usually, they’ll be referencing these incidents:


If you look at that link, you’ll find that they’re not disability advocates, they’re anti-abortion extremists posing as advocates for disabled people who never existed.

all that cultural training to be a Karen has to be good for something besides making decent people miserable!
Seriously though, I was very respectful on the phone and the customer service rep was similarly disgusted and incensed. I’m confident she really will push the issue up the chain. Amazon should have better methods to screen for this kind of shite but they don’t.

This is a hateful, ignorant artifact of an Islamophobic culture, not a White Elephant gift sold at Spencer’s.

This is a racist Islamophobic scam that plays to stupid fears. That Amazon would allow this shit says all you need to know about that organization.

It’s also antisemitic. Not that those racists are normally against both religions.
