There's some truth to the fact that, although the Bronco is pretty cool, there are a lot of alternatives that can be equally good or even better, depending on your mindset and actual needs.
If I was to be bumped to MY22, I would be looking really hard at a number of alternatives. Some of which wouldn't even be off-road capable vehicles. I do understand the frustration though and do expect people to be pretty unhappy about the situation. They have a good reason to be, and it's not just whining, because Ford set the expectation (and they need to be accountable for that).
The world was certainly affected by recent events, but that alone is not sufficient to justify the mess this has become.
