First up a number of reputatable commentators have been posting screenshots of a headline about the CEO of the Target chain of variety stores claiming they’re about to take a $500-million hit due to “Retail Crime” hitting their stores, especially in Democrat run Cities that don’t seem to understand what the problem is when people start shoplifting on a massive scale.
Target’s Chairman and CEO Brian Cornell announced the company will suffer an estimated $500 million in lost profits this year, citing organized retail theft as a primary factor. https://t.co/Uls9ghFVNT

Prior to this another bunch of reputable commentators have been calling for a Bud Light style Boycott of Target because they have been selling items to assist with an issue increasingly being seen as a form of child abuse.
What @Target is doing is far worse than anything Bud Light did. They are selling chest binders & “tuck-friendly” bathing suits for children.
Target is calling our bluff. But just like any other company, they need our business. We did it with Bud Light. Now it’s Target’s turn. pic.twitter.com/C2O2mkgDxw

This comes as they’ve already had to spend the last few years trying to shake off reputational damage from a CEO who didn’t seem to understand why women would object to people with testicles using the women’s toilets in Target stores alongside their young daughters.
Time to leave Chicago and San Francisco methinks. https://t.co/cftLyrhYSQ
