Target saw the shitstorm that Bud Light was going through and decided “Why don’t we do the same thing but make it more satanic?”.
Target has introduced a new “PRIDE” collection that includes clothing made by a UK-based brand called Abprallen. The designer of Abprallen, known as “Erik,” has expressed Satanist views in the past. The collaboration between Abprallen and Target has been ongoing for about a year but has just recently sparked controversy.
Abprallen also incorporates satanic imagery into their apparel, including pentagrams, horned skulls, and references to the devil. One design even states, “Satan respects pronouns.”
There have been viral videos and posts alleging that Target is marketing “tuck-friendly” swimsuits to children, although Target clarified that these swimsuits are only available in adult sizes. Target’s CEO, Brian Cornell, has expressed support for LGBTQ+ inclusivity and stated that it is the right thing for society. Despite the controversy, Target’s stock price has seen a decline.
This might be controversial, I am pro “tuck”. I feel like kids would do that in middle school as a little party trick while changing for P.E. The only tuck that really hurt anyone was the “Tuck Rule” when Tom Brady destroyed the hopes of every Raiders fan in America. Let’s go through all the cool and good “tucks”: Justin Tucker, Chris Tucker, and Tucker Carlson.
Besides me not really caring about this, I gotta admit pride clothes gotta be some of the ugliest designs of all time. You’re essentially walking around like a walking Lucky Charms model. I think if these designers took a page from Supreme and just made a shirt that was Box Logo-esque that simply said “Gay”, I would be there for it. In that video, they show the most hideous array of clothes so that’s my gripe with this whole story.
As for the satanic stuff, I’m gonna put my foot down and say I am against it. I pride myself and think of myself as a man of faith, as there’s a drive into deep left field by Castellanos and that’ll be a home run. And so that’ll make it a 4-0 ballgame. I don’t know if I’m going to be putting on this headset again. I don’t know if it’s going to be for the Reds. I don’t know if it’s going to be for my bosses at Fox.
