Target is now trying to scale back down their gay propaganda campaign after their "Pride" collection featuring "tuck-friendly" swimwear and gay pride baby onesies sparked sensible outrage.

According to Fox News, Target held an “emergency” meeting this week regarding the June Pride Month displays that have caused much customer outrage in the recent weeks. The corporation reportedly instructed some stores in more rural southern regions of the United States to relocate their pride displays to less visible areas inside to avoid what they called a “Bud Light” situation. 

A Target insider told Fox News, “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."

He continued, "We call our customers ‘guests,’ there is outrage on their part. This year it is just exponentially more than any other year. I think given the current situation with Bud Light, the company is terrified of a Bud Light situation.” 

However, pride merchandise is still prominent in most stores and on the Target website.

The disturbing merchandise sold at Target includes “Queer” themed onesies and shirts for little kids. For adults, there are women's bathing suits that are “tuck friendly” for men who claim to identify as women, with products labeled, "Thoughtfully fit on multiple body types and gender expressions." 

The store chain also featured several pieces from a transgender designer whose own website features merchandise with satanic imagery and messages that read, “Satan Respects Pronouns.” Because at some point, you just have to admit when your agenda is evil.  

Openly pro-trans marketing campaigns are in the spotlight after Bud Light's sales tanked after the company partnered with transgender TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney, a man who dresses like a little girl, as their latest online spokesperson. Perhaps Target is realizing that shoving gay and trans propaganda in their customers' faces isn’t the great marketing strategy they originally thought.
