Target’s latest move to placate the left missed the mark in an embarrassing way

Feb 14, 2024

After Target suffered a significant boycott from Christians for pushing homosexual/trans issues into the kid’s clothing section, you would think Target would have gotten the message to stay out of politics.

But their latest move shows they learned nothing from the backlash.

Target had to hustle to pull this product off the shelf after some pointed out that the retail giant doesn’t prove it works.

The controversy erupted after vigilant users pointed out the error, prompting Target to take swift action.

The product in question, a Black History Month magnet book, came under fire after discovering that it had mixed up the identities of W.E.B. Du Bois, Booker T. Washington, and Carter G. Woodson, three pivotal figures in American history.

As historical enthusiasts raised concerns about the inaccuracies, Target confirmed the blunder and swiftly initiated damage control measures.

A TikTok video, shared by user Issa Tete, served as a catalyst for exposing the flaw in the holiday-themed item.

Tete’s video garnered over 700,000 views as she meticulously dissected the magnet book’s errors, emphasizing the importance of rectifying the mistake.

“Idk who needs to correct it, but it needs to be pulled off the shelves nonetheless,” Tete captioned the clip, urging for corrective action.

In the viral video, Tete, drawing from her history and social studies teacher background, carefully pointed out the discrepancies in the magnet book.

She underscored the gravity of the situation, stressing, “I noticed discrepancies like as soon as I opened this. Like I said, these need to be pulled off the shelf.”

Highlighting the mislabeled magnets depicting Du Bois, Washington, and Woodson, Tete elucidated how the names were erroneously attributed.

With unwavering determination, she clarified, “This is not W.E.B Du Bois; this is Booker T. Washington,” while juxtaposing the real figures with their correct names online.

In response to the uproar, Target swiftly issued a statement to Fox News, acknowledging the oversight and affirming corrective measures.

A Target spokesperson expressed remorse over the error, saying in their Fox statement, “We will no longer be selling this product in stores or online. We’ve also ensured the product’s publisher is aware of the errors.”

The incident has reignited discussions about the significance of accurate representation in Black History Month merchandise and the importance of thorough vetting processes.

For many conservative Americans, the blunder serves as a reminder of the need for diligence and attention to detail, particularly when commemorating pivotal moments and figures in American history.

It also is another black mark against Target, as they continue to try AND FAIL to keep up with the woke agenda.

Maybe it’s time they go back to basics and step out of politics stay out of the culture war.
