Retail giant Target has faced backlash for its inclusion of “pride” items associated with the satanic designer Abprallen. The collection, which features a range of items for children, babies, and adults, including transgender-friendly swimsuits, has been under scrutiny since its unveiling. This sparked significant criticism, including from Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), who reproached Target for promoting this agenda.
The backlash appears to have had an impact, as Target has since removed items linked to the designer. Previously, a search for Abprallen on the Target website would display two items: a shirt reading “Cure Transphobia Not Trans People” and a tote bag with the message “Too Queer for Here.” Currently, the website states, “We couldn’t find a match for your search,” indicating these items have been pulled from the offering.
While the Abprallen items are being removed, other items from the collection continue to undergo review amid ongoing criticism and threats of boycotts. These include swimsuits designed for transgender adults, featuring “tuck-friendly” bottoms and “light-binding” tops. According to Reuters, Target is actively reviewing these products, but no decisions have been made yet.
These adjustments follow what has been referred to as an “emergency” decision to relocate the prominently displayed Pride sections to smaller areas in the back of certain Target stores. An insider revealed to 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.”
