Target Self-Sabotages Responding To Looming Boycott, Meet The New Bud Light

Target has just added fuel to the fire over the backlash they are receiving for their June Pride Collection.

It was reported that on May 24, 2023 the company decided to hold an “emergency meeting” to deal with the backlash.

Clearly, the company was worried they would end up like Bud Light.

After the meeting it was learned that Target is shrinking the display, removing items, and moving it to the rear of the store.

However, what ticked everybody off (the right and the left) was their passive-aggressive statement regarding the change.

“Since introducing this year’s collection, we’ve experienced threats impacting our team members’ sense of safety and well-being while at work,” Target said in a statement Tuesday. ”Given these volatile circumstances, we are making adjustments to our plans, including removing items that have been at the center of the most significant confrontational behavior.”

So, in other words, Target is betraying its values for the almighty dollar while blaming the people (whose money they want) for threatening them.
It didn’t go over well.
California Governor Newsom hammered the retail company for caving, and on the right, conservatives are calling for a 30-day boycott.

What has Americans fired up is the motive behind the products this year.
