The retail giant Target has received a lot of criticism over its most recent LGBTQ Pride line. Rapper Jimmy Levy, one of their protesters, made his own diss track about it. The other critics were rapper Nick Nittoli, who unveiled ‘Boycott Target’ along with Levy, Stoney Dudebro, and Forgiato Blow.
‘Boycott Target’ has received millions of views since it was first posted, despite Jimmy’s claims that it has been banned. The applications he has accused of being censors have not corroborated his claims.
One of the clothes in the Target Pride line was a “tuck-friendly” women’s bathing suit, which offended the more traditional customers. Other products included slogans like “too queer for here” and “cure transphobia, not trans people.”
The retail company claimed they received bomb threats and that its employees had also been intimidated by anti-LGBTQ individuals as boycott calls exploded online. They eliminated specific designs from specific outlets in order to protect the safety of their employees.
