Bud Light is still reeling financially over their decision to team up with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, and now other companies may be panicking about the prospect of becoming the ‘next’ Bud Light.
Target is one such company.
If you haven’t been paying attention, the retail giant has come under heavy criticism for their decision to heavily push LGBTQ “Pride” merchandise.
The merchandise includes selling “tuck friendly” bathing suits for adults as well as children.
If that wasn’t disturbing enough, the company also appears to be selling Satanic merchandise as well.
Target is apparently starting to feel the heat from angry customers.
The company held an emergency meeting on the “Pride” merchandise that sits front and center inside their stores.
According to several insiders, the company is terrified of a potential “Bud Light situation.”
To curb the outrage, they have moved all such merchandise to a smaller area in the back of the store.
It may be too little, too late for Target though..
BREAKING NEWS: Target holds 'emergency' meeting over LGBTQ merchandise in some stores to avoid ‘Bud Light situation’https://t.co/urVNrWEB0R

Fox News has details on the emergency meeting:
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.”
Many Target locations across the country feature massive June Pride month displays on an annual basis, with items this year ranging from “tuck friendly” bathing suits for transgender people to mugs that say “gender fluid.” But the retail juggernaut has been criticized by some conservatives for the displays, with children’s items particularly irking many customers.
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.
A Target insider said there were “emergency” calls on Friday and that some managers and district senior directors were told to tamp down the Pride sections immediately.
“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. From the front of the store to the back of the store, you can’t have anything on mannequins and no large signage,” the Target insider said.
“We call our customers ‘guests,’ there is outrage on their part. This year, it is just exponentially more than any other year,” the Target insider continued. “I think given the current situation with Bud Light, the company is terrified of a Bud Light situation.”

Target Execs Hold EMERGENCY MEETING to Avoid a “Bud Light Situation” After Hiring Trans Satanist to Design Satanic Kids Pride Clothing via @gatewaypundit https://t.co/fJlHnMavK2

Here are more details from the Gateway Pundit:
Abprallen, an LGBT+ company based in London that sells Satanist merchandise and woke statement t-shirts and pins has teamed up with retail giant, Target. Abprallen is owned by a self-proclaimed trans man named Erik.
“This has been so hard to keep quiet but I can now proudly announce that you can buy Abprallen in US Targets! Part one of the range includes a messenger bag, a tote, and a sweatshirt!” Erik wrote on the brand’s Instagram.
“These have already got the transphobes infuriated with me and I feel like quite the celebrity to think that they believe this is all some big conspiracy and I have any power to brainwash anyone when I’m just some guy drawing pictures!” the post added.
Some of the items in the collection include a hoodie with the phrase “cure transphobia not trans people,” a tote bag with the phrase “too queer for here,” and a messenger bag with the phrase “we belong everywhere.”
There are depictions of pentagrams, horned skulls, and references to devils on some of Abprallen’s other merchandise.
