Clearly, the damage control or brand reputation management doesn't work.
The franchise lost 85%-90% of its revenue. Kishi's new manga flopped. Etc.
And the thing is, I don't know how they could ever undo the damage. It's not just the pairing, but so much of the writing has been devalued or twisted in order to keep the franchise going. Like, we can all point out various morals, good morals, that the series did a 180 on at the end. Stuff like hard work over natural talent, or that the ninja system turns people into weapons. Even the bonds of the characters have been shattered, because let me tell you reading the manga there's no indication that Hinata is anywhere close to the level of importance in Naruto's life than Sasuke is. They even killed off Neji in order to give NaruHina a moment, only to turn around and say that the moment didn't amount to much since Naruto didn't talk to Hinata again until years later.
It's a mess, there's no justification for what they did and nothing short of massive retcons, timeline BS, or the like will ever fix it.
