A right-wing Christian musician criticized drag queen Flamy Grant's song "Good Day" from her album Bible Belt Baby. This critique inadvertently led to the album reaching number one on Apple Music due to increased publicity.
Following his concert titled "Let Us Worship" at the Indiana State House, local Satanic Temple members demanded their own concert space. Their event is called "Let It Burn."
Negative press can almost always be leveraged in a positive way. A poor review of your work could potentially attract curiosity and attention rather than deter it.
Businesses have been known to use negative reviews in their advertising. For example, restaurants might invite customers to try a dish that was poorly reviewed on Yelp, turning criticism into an opportunity.
While responding to negativity with positivity shouldn't encourage bad behavior, it may not always be detrimental as initially perceived. Sometimes such incidents can serve as blessings in disguise.
Consider Flamy Grant’s success story next time you receive a bad review.
