Kohl’s Is the Latest Target.

WSJ: Kohl’s Is the Latest Target.

Kohl’s stock is down 5% on Tuesday after a social media blitz called for a boycott of the department store based on its Pride Month merchandise.

The customer backlash follows a similar controversy at Target, where social media users criticized the retailer’s assortment of Pride Month products, including a transgender-friendly swimsuit. Videos tagged with #boycottkohls had about 280,000 views on TikTok as of Tuesday.

Newsweek: Kohl's Faces Boycott Calls Over LGBT+ Baby Clothes.

[ALX on Twitter] wrote: "In case you need clothes for Your Gay or Trans 3 month old, Kohl's has you covered." This message was viewed more than half a million times and received over 1,400 retweets.

The Newsweek story, by  James Bickerton, describes this as, "Right-wingers initiated campaigns against Target over its sale of LGBTQ+ inclusive children's clothes, and Bud Light in response to its partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney."

I've never seen a story where a boycott promoted by Liberals is described as, "Left-wingers initiated a boycott of....", ... whatever.

Heh...The Left, the original proponents of Cancel Culture, gets a taste of its own and they snowflake out.

Liberal Tears of Unfathomable Sadness! Good times!

Matthew, a lot of people did. Same when Bed, Bath Beyond dumped My Pillow. Now they're bankrupt. Woke=Broke.
Thanks for dropping by.

I’m surprised not seeing as much blowback as Budweiser and target saw. I have a family member that works for them.

BC, We'll see how this plays out for Kohl's. They've been struggling for years.

From 2019: "We visited Kohl's and saw why sales are dipping as the company looks like it might suffer the same fate as other department stores"
