Target Backpedals After MAJOR Backlash to Satanist Transgender Merchandise

Target is in boiling hot water after introducing their “Pride Collection” that was created by a transgender satanist. The merchandise directly reflected its creator and is heavily satanic.

After major backlash this week, the retailer has decided to remove “some” of the pro-LGBT merchandise, citing “volatile circumstances.”

“While various Pride Collection products are under review, the only ones now being removed are the LGBTQ brand Abprallen, which has come under scrutiny for its association with British designer Erik Carnell,” Reuters reported on Tuesday.

Target is also “reviewing” some items in the swimsuit section and “children’s merchandise” that promotes transgenderism, including a “tuck friendly” swimsuit designed for boys who want to hide their penis.

As LifeSite News reports:

One image posted on Instagram and spotlighted by conservative activist Scarlett Johnson on Twitter showed “Erik” Carnell, who describes herself as a “trans gay man,” posing while wearing a “Satan respects pronouns” t-shirt and sporting Baphomet horns on her head, as previously reported by LifeSiteNews.

“Being called a demon is something I can cope with, and the idea of a trans demon is pretty d— cool, most of my work focusses on gothic or dark and satanic imagery juxtaposed with bright colours and LGBT+ positive messages,” she wrote in one Instagram post.

In another Instagram post, Carnell discussed the use of satanic symbols in her designs. 

“Satan loves you and respects who you are,” she wrote. “LGBT+ people are so often referred to as being a product of Satan or going against God’s will, so fine. We’ll hang with Satan instead,” the designer wrote. “Satan respects pronouns,” Carnell added.

The company has also started to move some of its other “pride” material, according to Fox News.

“Some southern Target stores were forced by the corporation to move LGBTQ Pride merchandise away from the front of their locations after customer ‘outrage’ to avoid a ‘Bud Light situation,’” Fox News reported.

“A Target insider told Fox News Digital that many locations, mostly in rural areas of the South, have relocated Pride sections to avoid the kind of backlash Bud Light has received in recent weeks after using a transgender influencer in a promotional campaign,” Fox News reported.

The company reported that their employees have experienced “threats” following the introduction of this year’s “Pride Collection,” but did not indulge any details on what the alleged threats were.

“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,” Target said in a statement.
