Target Pride brand says collection pulled after threats from ‘domestic terrorists’
One of the brands that created part of Target’s Pride collection says its items have been pulled from brick-and-mortar stores — blaming “domestic terrorist threats.”
The brand, ash+chesssays most of its products have been pulled from Target stores following backlash.
The New York-based brand, which says it’s “queer + trans owned,” says it’s saddened by what’s happening at some Target stores… where people are destroying Pride displays.
Ash+Chess says… “Emotionally, we currently don’t have the bandwidth to comment further on this. We appreciate your support and love. Queer and trans people exist in the past, present and future, and together we are stronger.” We love you all.”
While Target has apparently pulled the brand’s products from stores, the collection is still available online as of this publication.
Some of Ash+Chess’s Pride items include hats, cards, shirts, shorts, sweatshirts, hoodies, posters and calendars…and they mostly celebrate being queer and trans.
As you know, there is a boycott targeting the national chain for its decision to feature LGBTQ clothing and other items, a boycott that has cost Target $9 billion and counting.
Targeted employees are being harassed and people are up in arms… and some people are taking hate too far.
