I saw it and did not think they were making fun of alopecia, but rather of trichotillomania. Personally, I thought it was pretty shocking to watch someone pull that much hair out at one time and could do without watching it again.

Yeah...it did kind of offend me. The women looked like me when I was in the midst of all this before it all came out. I don't think they were making fun of people with alopecia though.

Yes I found it offensive. H & R Block are not very good at taxes. I went to them one time and would
never go back.

Now is the time for alopecians and other hair loss "sufferers" who are H&R Block clients to move their business elsewhere and inundate the stations who running the commercials with email and letters of protest.
