A pro-transgender mother is outraged with Target after the company removed certain Pride merchandise off the shelves.
“I just walked into Target and right behind me here — where you see all these lovely swimsuits — that’s where the pride display used to be,” Rachelle Lefevre, a left-wing actress who describes herself as a pro-transgender (she/her) with a “non-binary” seven-year-old, said in an Instagram post.
Target’s stock has dropped in the last week, losing a reported $9 billion in market value after customers began boycotting the retailer’s pro-transgender displays.
Executives did not provide any evidence to support the “threats” claim but posted a press release, saying: Since introducing this year’s collection, we’ve experienced threats impacting our team members’ sense of safety and well-being 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.
