Target doubles down on self-destruction.
Target CEO defends LGBTQ-friendly kids clothing amid boycott calls: ‘The right thing for society’
Target’s top executive dismissed the social media uproar over the retailer’s new line of LGBTQ-friendly kids clothing, saying that marketing the products are good for business and “the right thing for society.”
Sorry, Charlie, but as a retail business, the “right thing for society” is NOT your remit. Nor any of your fucking concern, really. Like other Wokester CEOs, you seem to have lost sight completely of what your business really is.
Outraged shoppers posted videos and images on social media showing bathing suits that offer “extra crotch coverage” as well as rainbow-colored onesies for infants and children.
On Fortune’s “Leadership Next” podcast last week, Target CEO Brian Cornell was asked about the backlash to “woke” capitalism, which has also engulfed iconic beer brand Bud Light as well as entertainment giant Disney.
“I think those are just good business decisions, and it’s the right thing for society, and it’s the great thing for our brand,” Cornell said.
Well, we’ll soon be finding out about all that, now won’t we? Here’s hoping to soon be seeing Twitter pics of you standing atop a big-city overpass, all shabby, disheveled, and shell-shocked looking, holding a battered, hand-lettered cardboard sign in your grubby hands, panhandling passing traffic with extremely modest success.
Update! Welll. Well, well, well, well, well, well, WELL.
As Tar-Gay Hemorrhages Dollars Over Wokeness, They Help Employees Cope…With George Floyd’s Death Anniversary
It’s been a self-inflicted very bad week for retailer target. They’re losing money. Lots of money. They’re losing customers. Lots of customers. They’re dumping products after learning that wokeness and Satanism do not endear them to many Americans.
Through it all, they’ve remained focused on their employees which the touchy-feely company believes are all quite fragile. To help them cope, Target sent out an internal memo about George Floyd. Yes, George Floyd. According to Greg Price:
Yesterday was a very hard day to Target, and as CEO Brian Cornell said, thank you for the care you’ve shown each other, our frontline teams and the LGBTQIA+ community.
Today brings more reflection, pain and the need for continued care as our team, hometown and world remember the anniversary of the murder of George Floyd. As you make space to take care of yourself and each other, know that you can always tap into these tools from Team Member Life Resources, and as Mental Health Awareness Month continues, turn to the Take Five to Take Care hub for more well-being support.
BLM is failing. Wokeness is failing. America seems to finally be waking up from the mind assault of Cultural Marxism that has plagues us for years. We need to keep the pressure up because companies like Target and Anheuser-Busch will certainly keep pushing against us.
According to a Tweet embedded in the linked article, Tarzhay’s losses for one week amounted to a staggering 9 billion-with-a-B dollars. So how’s all that Wokester bushwa working out for ya, Mr CEO? NOT TOO GOOD, I’d have to say. But hey, you go live your “truth,” baby.
