HSN’s Beekman Boys Face Backlash On Donation to LGBTQ Group

June 17, 2019

Seriously? The Beekman Boys at the center of a controversy?

The former Evine vendors, who are now on HSN selling their soaps and other products made from goat milk, posted a story on Facebook that said they were getting backlash after contributing to a gay charity campaign.

“It’s 2019, and this really shouldn’t be how we make the news,” they said on Facebook.

The Beekman 1802 partners, in business and life, are Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge. The pair recently said they would be donating some of their product sale proceeds to PFLAG, a national organization, to help support the families of the LGBTQ community, according to the story.

In one FB post the boys said they were donating all the proceeds of the sale of a cute rainbow goat pin to LGBTQ-focused charities.

If you like these guys, who run a goat farm in Upstate New York, and buy their products don’t be a hypocrite by blasting them for supporting their community.

In fact, don’t be a chuckle-head full of bias and hate. Period.
