Rappers riffed on a major department store’s name in a song resonating with parents outraged at transgender products targeting children.
“Target is targeting your kids,” rapper Forgiato Blow’s song declared in his single. His production is a reaction to products marketed for transgender children and clothing designed by a Satan worshipper.
The Daily Wire further reported:
Forgiato Blow, Jimmy Levy, Nick Nittoli, and Stoney Dudebro created the hit song, boasting lyrics about retail giant Target “targeting” your children with Satanic and sexualized goods.
“There’s a cleanup on every aisle/Target is targetin’ your kids,” the song’s lyrics open. “This agenda’s gotta stop, they know we gonna win.”
“Target, Target, yeah they targetin’/Target, Target, yeah they target kids,” the song goes, continuing on to lyrics about the LGBT agenda going “too far.”
The video for the song appears to have been shot at a Target store, where LGBT Pride goods are on display for sale.
“Patriots We Are Currently #6 On iTunes Let’s Get #BoycottTarget To #1,” Forgiato Blow posted on his Twitter account Friday.
Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA) boosted the song online. “American Conservatives are once again showing who has the real buying power,” she said. “It’s not the woke mob, they only bully and riot.”
“There is now a rap song about the Target Boycott. It’s not just an online movement anymore — it’s fully enmeshed in culture,” wrote Rogan O’Handley, a.k.a. D.C. Draino. “And Target’s stock price is at its lowest point in a year and falling fast. When will these Woke companies learn? LEAVE THE KIDS ALONE.”
Target faced criticism after social media users pointed out that the store offered “tuck-friendly” and “extra crotch coverage” female swimsuits for sale. In response to the controversy, Target announced that it has also removed some products from its stores, which reportedly include a sweater that read “cure transphobia not trans people” and a “too queer for here” tote bag.
The backtracking comes amid a devastating boycott against beer brand Bud Light over that company’s decision to team up with Dylan Mulvaney, a 26-year-old transgender activist.
Bud Light’s parent company, Anheuser-Busch has reportedly lost nearly $16 billion in market value since the backlash started last month. Target has witnessed a $6 billion decrease in its market capitalization, The Daily Wire reported Thursday.
Target’s stock price has declined from $152.28 on May 19, to $139.39 on May 25, marking an 8.5% decrease over the course of a single week. The firm’s market capitalization, which refers to the total value of a publicly traded company’s outstanding shares, fell from $70.4 billion to $64.4 billion over the same time period.
UPDATE: The hit single has alread climbed two spots on the iTunes Hip Hop chart, which is now ranked fourth.
