    Yep, Method is sending this message to folks who contacted them concerning the Shiny Suds video:
    Dear Andrew
    Thank you for your sincere feedback about our “Shiny Suds” video. It was not at all our intent to offend or promote any form of harassment. We understand the concerns associated with our video and are removing it from YouTube and all other controlled sources.
    Method is a group of women and men who care about our planet, but first and foremost about people. Our intent in this campaign was to raise awareness for transparency in cleaning product ingredients, to which we remain committed.
    We continue to learn and we appreciate the fact that you took the time to reach out to us.
    Our sincerest thanks,
