(GoRealNewsNow.com) – Target has backtracked on a newly announced partnership with a firm designing satanic-themed clothes and accessories for LGBT individuals following an intense public backlash.
(After reading the rest of this post, please share your reaction to Target aligning itself with a Satanist company by emailing [email protected]. Thank you.)
The retail giant announced it is enacting changes in its stores for its LGBT products for the “Gay Pride” month, which is celebrated in June.
Some of the Target products that angered the public include baby and children items and “transgender swimsuits” with “tuck-friendly” and “light-binding” effects for biological males claiming to be female.
Among other scandalous items, it appears to have removed those created by Abprallen, a UK-based company making occult and Satan-worshipping LGBT designs, Breitbart News reports.
The removed products included at least two Satanist Abprallen designs – a tote bag with an inscription, “Too Queer for Here,” and a top reading, “Cure Transphobia Not Trans People.”
The report reveals a quick search for Abprallen on the Target website would produce the two items, but now it only says, “We couldn’t find a match for your search.”
The satanic-themed designer firm is owned by an individual named “Erik,” a “transgender gay man” – a biological woman claiming to be a man but attracted to males.
Abprallen’s designs feature the satanic figure Baphomet. One of its designs states, “Satan respects pronouns.”
“Coming up with this phrase really helped make Abprallen what it is today. We’ll hang with Satan instead,” it says in an Instagram post.
Target has justified its backtracking on partnering with the Satanic designer with employee safety.
“Since introducing this year’s collection, we’ve experienced threats impacting our team members’ sense of safety and wellbeing while at work,” the company declared in a statement cited by Reuters.
“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,” it added.
According to Fox News, some Target stores were ordered to immediately move their Gay Pride sections from the front to the back.
“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,” a company insider said.
Some Target stores have moved their “pride” sections — which feature an array of items pushing the transgender agenda on children — to a less prominent location in their facilities following a string of backlash. https://t.co/6dUecom6MK
