Why would a company like Hindustan Unilever even consider airing an advertisement as controversial as this?

I'll try and break it down to the best of my abilities.

[thread]
HUL reported a net income of $840,000,000 in 2016-17 where their sales revenue was upwards of $4.8 billion
Their share prices have been consistently up at Rs. 1,708 as of 11 March 2019.

Safe to say, HUL is one of the big players.
On 8 March 2019, Brooke Bond who's parent company is HUL released an advertisement highlighting the abandonment of elderly parents at the Kumbh Mela.

This ad was immediately met with immense backlash from people who took offense to message in the ad.

1) Hmmm. #BoycottNike CEO Mark Parker photographed with his art. Remind you of anyone? The Kapernick debacle is making a ton more sense now.

#Qanon proof incoming.

2) #Qanon posted this on Aug 31. The artist's name is Mark Ryden.

Wow. Traffic on @Nike after they announced that @Kaepernick7 will be the face of the anniversary #JustDoIt campaign.

If they were aiming for attention, it worked.

Consistent with organic traffic flows, not substantially gamed traffic.
Top hashtags #Nike and #JustDoIt. In third place, but some way behind, #BoycottNike.

Boycott calls are part of the arsenal. Cf. NFL, Keurig, etc.

#maga just edges #colinkeapernick. 1.3% of uses vs 1.2%.

Ahem...he sacrificed absolutely nothing. He isn't playing ball because no team wants him. Heck, no one is keeping the NFL from hiring him. He simply isn't good. If was, he would be on a with the kneelers. He isn't kneeling for black lives. #BoycottNike #NFL #ColinKaepernick
#Nike and #ColinKaepernick both setting a bad example for losers. Typical liberal, when they can't win they blame the system. They can never accept defeat gracefully.
Why hasn't he taken the knee for the black lives extinguished in Chicago, Baltimore, Detriot, LA or abortion clinics? #ColinKaepernick only wants to take the knee when it involves playing the race card and he can't win and can't accept defeat. #BoycottNike

I am joining all the #MAGA2018 in #BoycottNike
I am organizing the biggest @NIKE shoe burning event.
My deep state connections tell me these model shoes are the Libs Favorites.
Make them cry.
Nike loses $200 every time you burn these.
let's burn a mountain of NIKE's. Send vids
This event added some new rules:
- up to 4 MAGA2018 can pitch in to buy one pair ( team spirit)
- Willing to postpone until Unemployment checks are received this Friday.
FYI: libs can’t March with them pink socks on their heads if they can’t find Nike shoes at the store. BUY EVERYTHING AND SMASH IT WITH YOUR PICK UP TRUCKS!

Tagging companies on the list of Planned Murderhood contributors. I am DISGUSTED with every single one of you on this list. Some of the names are really shocking considering the business you are in and the fact that income form those businesses you would spend on killing babies
You ALL participated and most are STILL participating in MURDERING of innocent AMERICAN lives. Your resources could be spent on medical care, childcare, playgrounds, education... Instead you choose to follow the leftist agenda and POWER over doing the RIGHT THING.
