Even if you're a dude, by now you've probably heard that we're in the middle of a big TAMPON SHORTAGE. So what's causing it? "Time" magazine looked into it, and when they asked Tampax, their answer was . . . AMY SCHUMER.
Tampax launched a new ad campaign with Amy in July of 2000, and they say that ever since then, quote, "retail sales growth has exploded."
It's not likely that they're even the least bit serious. Especially since the shortage affects all other brands, not just Tampax.
The real answer is complicated, but it basically boils down to the pandemic and supply chain issues . . . like practically everything else that SUCKS right now.
