Megyn Kelly Trolls Target - Watch
Target is receiving criticism from conservative circles for their partnership with Abprallen, a company whose designs feature images of Satan and symbols associated with the LGBT+ community.
Included in Target’s Pride collection was womens’ swimwear containing “tuck-friendly” extra material to conceal men’s genitals. This sparked outrage among many, along with the inclusion of baby onesies from Abprallen that read “We belong everywhere” across a transgender flag.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly had strong words for Target’s decision, saying “Target decided it would be a great idea to partner with a company — as far as I could tell one of its main lines seems to be sort of a pro-Satan line of clothing…they [Target] don’t need tuck-friendly, but the Target CEO is out there defending this saying: ‘Look, the extra crotch wear and the tuck-friendly bathing suits are important, that this whole line in the Pride department is a good business decision. It’s the right thing for a society.’”
Target CEO Brian Cornell told Fortune’s Leadership Next podcast that the Pride collection is “a good business decision...adding value, it’s helping us drive sales, it’s building greater engagement with both our teams and our guests, and those are just the right things for our business today.”
Numerous Christian, conservative and pro-family organizations have come forward to condemn Target’s line of clothing, saying it normalizes the demonization and degradation of Christianity by embracing Satanic symbols on clothing for children.
“Target has made a decision to align itself with the most extreme elements of the LGBT agenda and in direct contradiction to timeless moral truth," Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said in a statement. "It isn't 'pride' that Target is promoting here, it is defiance and hostility to people of faith and to widely-held values. It is heartbreaking that Target has chosen to double-down on this agenda by pairing with a clothing company that adorns its products with symbols of Satan and loyalty to abortion.”
Following the backlash, Target announced that it will no longer be carrying the tuck-friendly swimwear or any of the Abprallen clothing from its Pride collection. While Target may think it is doing what is “best for business,” many customers believe it has crossed the line.
