If ever I were tempted to spend $168 on a pair of leggings, which thankfully will never happen, I know which brand I WON’T be buying: LULULEMON. Tek Gear leggings from Kohl’s for $18 suit me just fine.
Depsite being a multi-billion dollar company–thanks to capitalism–Lululemon is all woke, hip, and, apparently, wants to end capitalism. A quick perusal of their website shows Lululemon is selling their women’s leggings for prices between $88 and $168. How’s that for anti-capitalist?

High-end athletic apparel maker Lululemon has come under fire for inviting followers on Twitter to a workshop teaching people how to ‘resist capitalism’.
The Zoom meeting planned for later this month is to be hosted by company brand ambassador Rebby Kern.
The ‘Decolonizing Gender’ workshop is ‘to unveil historical erasure and resist capitalism’.
Sales of Lululemon have soared during the coronavirus pandemic with leggings and hoodies a common choice for workers who have been forced to swap their pants, suits and dresses for the office for more comfortable stay-at-home options.
Shares in the company are up some 51 percent with online sales up 157 percent since the start of the pandemic.
For this blatant hypocrisy, Lululemon is getting raked over the coals on social media. Hopefully, they get raked over the coals in terms of plummeting sales. Then we will really see how much they hate capitalism.
Lululemon, a company worth $45.5 billion best known for selling $100 leggings made by tortured overseas laborers, invited its social media followers to learn how to "resist capitalism" this weekend.https://t.co/gpX2BWPW5F

.@lululemon, who has the most expensive women's workout clothes… now wants to "resist capitalism."
Aside from this blatant woke SJW money grab, they also want to "decolonize gender" …whatever that means.
They clearly think the people who buy things from them are morons. pic.twitter.com/EuOCCAFaIS

Okay, @lululemon, I’ll “resist capitalism” by boycotting your products.
lol I can’t tell if you’re the idiots, or if it’s just that you think everybody else is. pic.twitter.com/umaznDJ4ML

I’ve blown out the crotch of every overpriced @lululemon pair of shorts I’ve ever worn. While no doubt that’s a testament to my glorious crotch, it’s also a sign they should focus more on their products and less on resisting the system which allows them to exist. https://t.co/ACKZZXd35d

It looks like they have deleted this workshop off their Instagram feed after all this ridicule. It’s nowhere to be found but it is unknown if the workshop is still taking place.
