HSN now POLITICAL??????
My name is Roberta. I’m a normal average consumer living in Ohio. I’m an American citizen. I will NO LONGER shop at/on HSN because they have dropped Ivanka Trumps clothing line. I DO NOT do buisness with companies that shove their opionion down my throat. I have no problem with them saying they are for Hillary Clinton, but choosing my brands that I am “allowed” to buy based on THEIR SUPERIOR knowlege of all things political crosses the line. I will also encourage my friends and family to do likewise. I like living in a free country where I can make up my own mind about what to think and where to shop and what to buy.

Ok Ivanka Trump was NEVER carried on HSN. I don’t know who gave anyone that idea. But I have been shopping here for quiet some time and they have never carried her line, ergo they Cannot discontinue it.
Don’t know if HSN ever carried Ivanka but Melissa McCarthy and Ashley Judd are on here and if they want to be political, fine we just will shop elsewhere and won’t purchase their items! We have the right to buy and spend our money where we want!
Does not HSN also have the right to buy what they want to carry and from whom they wish to buy it from? This is still an American right…yes?
I just looked it up, and found an article on allure.com. I believe it is dated Feb. 8, 2017.
It stated that HSN has never carried Ivanka Trump items. It also stated it had discontinued items from the Trump Home line.
They claim it is not political. I don’t believe it. That is my personal opinion. I have shopped a lot with HSN over the last maybe 10 years. I am totally opposed to business/political stands. I will not be a regular shopper anymore.
Consider me done with HSN. I have just cancelled all my autoship items. No more sales from me. Cutting up my HSN card. Hasta la vista! I will encourage others I know to follow suit. Don’t jam your values down our throats and discrimination is wrong. Politics don’t below in retail markets. You probably will lose half your business…..bad choice.
I do not think HSN has became political . A news report released inacccurate information . I sincerely believe HSN has been very respectful in their handling this situation .
It is hard sometimes almost impossible to vindicate yourself after inaccurate information is release by a news source.
HSN never carried Ivanka Trumps line , that is the truth .
Thanks for letting me know. I didn’t know this. I too will not shop HSN. A large apology is needed and then I still won’t shop here. I have two items on the way and will send them back ASAP.
The nerve and immaturity of any business to dictiate what others should buy or not buy based on their small minds.
While HSN never carried Ivanka’s line, they did take down Trump home items. Who thinks they would ever have done that to President Obama if an angry mob demanded it because they lost an election? It. would. never. happen. Sadly, there is a bias at work. I’ll still shop at HSN, but it’s too bad so many people and companies have yielded in the face of verbal attacks, boycotts, and masses of death threats (the death threats were launched against entertainers who were considering performing at Trump’s inauguration). This kind of behavior against anyone who dares to have even the most tenuous connection to Donald Trump is disgraceful, undemocratic, and, frankly, crazy. When will these people regain their composure?
I too am very upset by HSN taking liberal sides instead of remaing impartial. And now I also see how HSN is censoring threads like these, since they are not necessarily appearing on the recent post page, even with brand new postings. This further errodes trust in HSN’s credibility and genuiness toward us.
I went & looked up the issue.
HSN wasn’t being political. They were only reacting to a boycott.
That sheds a whole new light on it. They were in a no-win situation.
I still love you HSN. :heart:
Hope you all got to see the total meltdown of the person saying things like “Dump supporters”, “we will impeach your foolish leader”, etc. in the other thread. It was not someone on “the right” causing problems like the media always likes to portray; it was, yet again, someone on “the left” causing trouble and ruining it for all. They demanded the thread be closed, and yep, it’s gone–wiped entirely. 8 years with President Trump will be great, friends!
I LOVE FREE SPEECH—YOU GET TO SEE HOW PEOPLE REALLLLLLY ARE!
I have to say, until now I have loved HSN. And I don’t care for their competitors.
But, this news really bothers me.
Well, the bright side is, this will be good for my bank account. 🙂
Not a political statement, just a woman’s statement:
So happy to see that the “women’s march” accomplished such important results in supporting women. Oh, wait a minute, what, uh, oh now I am really confused, women are not supporting an educated, articulate, successful business woman, wife, mother and charity organizer because they want to bash her father….really…hmmmm.
So it’s official, if you disagree with someone for any reason, on any level, destroy that person utterly and completely, again being headed by a women who started the “grab your wallet” movement to destroy anyone she disagreed with politically or socially. Is this starting to sound the least bit scary to anyone?
I may be mistaken but this sounds very familiar like when major women’s organizations NOW and Emily’s List (whose sole purpose is to support women in seeking elected office) and so many more supported Hillary in the 2008 primary against Barack Obama.
Oh, wait a minute, I am mistaken. That was the time that they and the top democrats, main stream media and lifelong supporters of Hillary and women did all they could to trash her, call her a racist and savaged her personally and politically to give the nomination to Barack. All to get on the “cool, hip, liberal train for the charming, articulate and totally inexperienced young black guy” because that would make them so cool with the popular kids or the younger, cooler crowd or was it just plain fear that if you did not agree with your liberal friends you would be verbally savaged and find yourself on the outside looking in and that was just too tough a road for too many to dare to go down.
Now I am confused, what was the “women’s march” about, certainly not hypocrisy? There were hundreds of different signs stating hundreds of different reasons they were there to support women. However, something strange happened. They only supported women who agreed with a liberal definition of “women’s right to choose”, because if your sign dared to state “Pro Life” not only were you not welcome to march, you were chastised and berated and taken off the official program of legitimate organizations represented at the march. Looking as hard as I could, I could not find a sign in big red letters that stated “HYPOCRISY”. Well, perhaps it was just too hard to spell correctly.
Just saw an article and photo of Chelsea Handler with “a gay and a Jew” (her words not mine) holding Nordstrom bags in front of the White House. Now that must be a statement of a true feminist or is that a liberal or is that just a hypocrite.
It’s so confusing, oh well. I am sure it will all be explained by the political experts, where liberals get all their political and social education, on Colbert or SNL or Kimmel, etc., they will let their loyal students know exactly what to think or do next.
SIGNED: A Feminist democrat who turned Independent in 2008 and proudly remains an Independent, try it you might like it.
Oh and it is called Defamation of Character Slander is the verb/action/cause for which one can due for Deflamation of Character
HSN remove 17 products from the TRUMP HOME line these are products from the TRUMP “parent” company and ARE NOT Ivanka Trump products
Companies who removed Ivanka Trump AND/OR products from the Donald Trump parent co. Cited changes in carrying the items have to do with analysis of sale data and poor sales yet THEY ALL seem to ANALYZE the data during the #grab your wallet anti boycott stores who carry Ivanka Trump products campaign
FACTS and observations ( which is considered to be an opinion) are not considered slander under the law.
