Contrarian Amazon User Completely Upends Critical Consensus On Microfiber Towels

DAYTON, OH—Throwing the generally positive customer review section into a state of disarray, a contrarian Amazon user reportedly upended the critical consensus Monday by giving a set of three Sunland-brand $18.99 microfiber bath towels a one-star rating. “I don’t know what product everyone else here is talking about, because the towels I received are awful,” wrote Amazon customer and irate iconoclast TobyPotts74, shattering a string of 19 consecutive glowing reviews that unanimously agreed the towels were a good value compared to others in the same price range. “They absorb water OK, but just OK; no better than terry cloth. Also the listing says the color is beige, which is WRONG. These are much closer to tan. Very disappointing.
