Gavin Newsom slams Target for rolling back Pride products amid backlash

Date:

California Governor Gavin Newsom has slammed Target for “selling out LGBTQ communities” after it backed down some of its Pride collection products amid growing backlash.

Faced with a ‘Bud Light’ style boycott, the retail giant announced last night that it was pulling some of its products from stores.

It wasn’t a full comeback: The director of crisis communications, who released the statement, said the decision was due to “volatile” customer behavior that forced the store to protect staff safety.

The statement did nothing to halt the slide in Target’s stock price, which is down 13% since this time last month.

Newsom, however, sees retirement from the company as a complete U-turn.

In a tweet, Newsom fumed and claimed that “black, Asian, Jewish” people and women would be “next.”

“There is a systematic attack on the gay community taking place across the country.  Wake up America.  It doesn't stop there.  Are you black?  Are you Asian?  Are you Jewish?  You are a woman?  You're next,

“There is a systematic attack on the gay community taking place across the country. Wake up America. It doesn’t stop there. Are you black? Are you Asian? Are you Jewish? You are a woman? You’re next,’ he said in a tweet.

“Target CEO Brian Cornell selling out the LGBTQ+ community to extremists is a real profile of courage. It’s not just a few stores down south.

California has more Target stores than anywhere else in the country with 317, or about 16% of all stores nationwide.

Target announced last night that some products would be discontinued.

This was after a series of angry mothers took to Twitter and TikTok to complain. In recent weeks, the retail giant has been vilified by families – especially mothers – for pushing transgender clothes, books and greeting cards into its stores.

Amid outrage and confusion over a range of women’s ‘tuck friendly’ swimwear yesterday, the company released a statement to insist the suits were only available in adult sizes.

Amid growing anger over the displays and concern over some of the designers featured, the company began having “emergency calls” to avoid such a voracious backlash as Bud Light had to make. face for his partnership with trans activist Dylan Mulvaney.

In a statement last night, Target said it had removed some of the items that have “been at the center of the most divisive behavior.”

“Since introducing this year’s collection, we have experienced threats affecting our team members’ sense of safety and well-being at work,” Target said in a statement.

“Given these volatile circumstances, we are making adjustments to our plans, including removing elements that have been at the center of the most significant confrontational behavior,” said Kayla Castaneda, crisis communications manager.

The company did not specify which items were removed from the shelves. Many of the swimsuits, onesies and t-shirts that sparked outrage remain available online.

The statement did nothing to halt the slide in Target's stock price, which is down 13% since this time last month.

Her partnership with Eric Cullen, a British transgender man, whose Abprallen brand promotes Satanism, is also sparking growing outrage.

Target is selling two of the brand’s items — a $25 slogan sweater with the words “cure transphobia, not trans people” wrapped around a sword, a $18 “too weird for here” tote bag and a “we belong everywhere” fanny pack that now looks sold out.

Eric – a transgender man – proudly shared photos of the collaboration on Instagram.

“These have already made transphobes mad at me and I feel like a celebrity to think they believe this is all one big conspiracy and that I have the power to brainwash anyone while I’m just a guy who draws pictures!” he said.

A closer examination of his other work reveals more sinister elements.

Badges with slogans such as “Satan respect pronouns”, “Young, Queer and Willing” and a lighter lapel pin with the words “burn down the cis-tem” are among other products.

He also modeled the “Satan Respects Pronouns” t-shirt on an Instagram page while wearing BDSM-style horns and no pants.
