How about the brands which published these kind of ads? It’s a norm that typical brands try to play based on the accepted social rules in their target market.

I’m not in a place to judge how or if these brands can be blamed ethically, yet as far as the science of marketing is concerned I can say these brands  have failed to predict the future and to distinguish themselves as the pioneer brands that might even play against the status quo. A brand is a media and shall act and be accountable like a media.
