Target is facing a backlash and calls for a boycott after it was revealed that a designer involved in creating their recent woke “Pride” clothing line has made disturbing statements, expressing support for Satanism.
Abprallen, an LGBT+ company based in London that sells Satanist merchandise and woke statement t-shirts and pins has teamed up with retail giant, Target. Abprallen is owned by a self-proclaimed trans man named Erik.
“This has been so hard to keep quiet but I can now proudly announce that you can buy Abprallen in US Targets! Part one of the range includes a messenger bag, a tote, and a sweatshirt!” Erik wrote on the brand’s Instagram.
“These have already got the transphobes infuriated with me and I feel like quite the celebrity to think that they believe this is all some big conspiracy and I have any power to brainwash anyone when I’m just some guy drawing pictures!” the post added.
Some of the items in the collection include a hoodie with the phrase “cure transphobia not trans people,” a tote bag with the phrase “too queer for here,” and a messenger bag with the phrase “we belong everywhere.”
Target was shocked to discover that their customer base did not approve of the trans-Satanist children’s clothing line. They were caught off guard.
Things are so bad that Target execs called an emergency meeting to avoid a “Bud Light Situation.”
FOX News reported:
Some southern Target stores were forced by the corporation to move LGBTQ Pride merchandise away from the front of their locations after customer “outrage” to avoid a “Bud Light situation.”
Many Target locations across the country feature massive June Pride month displays on an annual basis, with items this year ranging from “tuck friendly” bathing suits for transgender people to mugs that say “gender fluid.” But the retail juggernaut has been criticized by some conservatives for the displays, with children’s items particularly irking many customers.
A Target insider told Fox News Digital that many locations, mostly in rural areas of the South, have relocated Pride sections to avoid the kind of backlash Bud Light has received in recent weeks after using a transgender influencer in a promotional campaign.
A Target insider said there were “emergency” calls on Friday and that some managers and district senior directors were told to tamp down the Pride sections immediately.
“We were given 36 hours, told to take all of our Pride stuff, the entire section, and move it into a section that’s a third the size. From the front of the store to the back of the store, you can’t have anything on mannequins and no large signage,” the Target insider said.
