Republican Sen JD Vance has announced he will be longer shopping at Target amid the controversy over the retail store’s satanic LGBTQ-themed clothing line for children, which caused outrage earlier this week.
“Target could have decided to stay out of the culture wars,” JD Vance said in a social media post on Friday..
Instead, it decided to wage war on a large share of its customer base,” he added.
“I no longer shop at Target, and it seems many families are doing the same,” Vance continued.
JD Vance also shared information on Target’s collapsing stock in the wake of boycotts, and it isn’t good!
Earlier this week, Target announced it would remove its LGBT Pride Collection and “satanic” items following a major backlash from its customer.
As The Daily Fetched reported:
While some Pride Collection items have already been reviewed, some remain under review.
Some of those items Target removed following the backlash included LGBT-themed apparel and accessories with an occult and satanic aesthetic produced by Abprallen, a London-based firm.
The merchandise features horned skulls, pentagrams, and satanic occult images.
The spokesperson said:
“For more than a decade, Target has offered an assortment of products aimed at celebrating Pride Month. Since introducing this year’s collection, we’ve experienced threats impacting our team members’ sense of safety and wellbeing while at work.”
“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. Our focus now is on moving forward with our continuing commitment to the LGBTQIA+ community and standing with them as we celebrate Pride Month and throughout the year.”
The Pride Collection also featured as many as 2,000 separate products, including mugs labeled “gender fluid,” calendars with the tagline “queer all year,” and a women’s swimsuit labeled as “tuck friendly” – a reference to trans women who have not yet transitioned.
