Target shareholders are feeling the backlash underway at the retailer as controversy swirls over its Pride merchandising plans, as first reported by Fox News Digital.

Shares slipped 2.7% on Wednesday and have dropped more than 9% this month, with 6% of that decline this week alone, as tracked by Dow Jones Market Data Group. That amounts to $4.2 billon in market value.

Over the same time frame, the S&P 500 has dropped just over 1%.


“For more than a decade, Target has offered an assortment of products aimed at celebrating Pride Month,” a Target spokesperson told Fox News Digital.

“Since introducing this year’s collection, we’ve experienced threats impacting our team members’ sense of safety and well-being while at work,” the spokesperson continued. “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.

“Our focus now is on moving forward with our continuing commitment to the LGBTQIA+ community and standing with them as we celebrate Pride Month and throughout the year.”

The outrage over the pride section exploded on social media. One user recently expressed his displeasure with the retailer in a curse-laden tirade. He pointed out that the Pride Month display was prominent, yet there was no Memorial Day display honoring veterans.

  1. Haven’t been in that store since they started bs about men and women sharing bathrooms ! And this man’s spot on on everything he said Stop complaining and back up uour words!!!!

  2. I haven’t been into a Target since the dressing room merge.

    I don’t believe it was due to “safety concerns”, nor public outcry. They could care less what the public thinks about their business model. I think it has more to do with publicly mirroring Bud Light’s month long decline in business.

  3. This started several years ago when Target banned Salvation Army kettles and then men allowed in woman’s restrooms and dressing rooms. This is last straw. I haven’t been there for a long time and will not be going back.

    • Same for me! We were in a nearby town the other day and rode by target and my daughter said didn’t they change their sign to black awhile back? I said I honestly don’t know and definitely don’t care. She said well it’s red now. I said well I guess their support of BLM and Antifa has waned. I don’t care what they do! They can give away free groceries and gift cards I am so done!! LEAVE OUR CHILDREN ALONE!! STOP MAKING US NORMAL PEOPLE FEAR GOING IN BATHROOMS AND DRESSING ROOMS!! Woke goes broke!!

  4. Funny they aren’t removing the shit they say they will continue to support lgbt. Good go ahead sorry the 3 percent. Meanwhile the rest of us will boycott you and but nothing. Just like bud light.
    We are sick of you asses pandering to a minority of mentally ill perverts and attacking kids with gay crap. Let kids be kids until they grow up!

  5. Saying they’ve experienced threats is absolute bullshit. The only threats are to their bottom line. The alphabet mafia are the ones making the threats. Stop blaming same people for your insane, satanic choices, Target!

  6. What idiots, don’t they know who the majority is that shops at target. It’s all so disturbing. Kick ‘‘em back in their pocketbook. Satan won’t win the war.

  7. I will never spend my hard earned money at a target again. Our wallets decide which companies succeed and target is just the next in a laundry list of clean up on aisle 4 failures.

    • KOHN ….That doesn’t surprise anyone on here! I bet you do a whole.lot of other things too…we don’t even want to know….

      • Imposters will imitate me. They will never duplicate me.
        But I find great irony that MAGA boycotts Bud Light on moral groundsz Then has no issues about Trump sexually assaulting women, stealing classified documents, and committing business fraud for decades in New York while thinking someone like him will save America🤣🤣🤣

        • So, you believe everything you hear in mainstream media? Do some real research. Original videos and documents, not edited (manipulated) ones. Then come back and comment.

  8. 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮 Hardly ever SHOP At Target…Never will again! Go Woke Go Broke! 🤢 Go down like Budweiser! 🤮
