Netizens Are Enraged By Bubble Gum Wax’s IG Post Shaming Men With Chest Hair
Waxing salon, Bubble Gum Wax enraged netizens with their recent IG post, suggesting that men with chest hair are deemed unattractive. They even uploaded comparison photos of a man’s body with and without chest hair on both their IG and FB accounts. The wording in the image uploaded read, “‘Omg, I love your chest hair!’ – said no woman ever.” was pretty condescending, but that’s not the worst part, the caption Bubble Gum Wax wrote, “If a woman said this to you, she’s probably just being nice. Cause no, you’re not rocking the chest hair, unless you’re Wolverine. What you need is a wax! Reveal your sexy pecs and abs at only RM59.”

It’s one thing to assume all women don’t like chest hair, but by body shaming men who have chest hair, that’s unacceptable and offensive! After the backlash from their post, Bubble Gum Wax decided to issue an apology saying, “It’s just simply a bad joke on our side. We apologise to all men and women who were hurt/affected by the joke. Thank you for your honest feedback to help us improve in the future. We appreciate your concern in helping us. We hope you like our new caption and until then, stay safe, stay healthy, and stay beautiful. Pray for Malaysia.”
Their weak apology got netizens calling them out:
