'Boycott Target' Jumps Past Morgan Wallen, Taylor Swift to Become No. 1 Song on iTunes

The rap song “Boycott Target” has jumped past singles by superstars Taylor Swift and Morgan Wallen to become the number one song on iTunes on Tuesday.

“Boycott Target” — from rappers Forgiato Blow and Jimmy Levy — was released Thursday and has become a runaway hit on multiple platforms. A music video for the song tweeted by Forgiato Blow has accumulated more than 4.4 million views after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) encouraged people to check it out.

The rap anthem has surged past both Morgan Wallen’s “Last Night” and Taylor Swift’s “Hits Different,” which currently sit at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively, on iTunes’ “Top Songs” chart. The No. 2 spot is currently occupied by country star Luke Combs’ “Fast Car.”

As Breitbart News reported, Target not only pushed gay and transgender-themed clothing for children, but also partnered with a Satanist designer, UK-based Abprallen, on its Pride line of apparel, which insists “Satan loves you” and “Satan respects pronouns.”


As a result, Target has lost $9 billion in stock market value since debuting its LGBTQ apparel for children.

Amid the widespread consumer backlash, the mainstream news media rushed to Target’s defense by falsely claiming conservatives were behaving violently in reaction to the LGBTQ clothing line.

The Associated Press  spread the conspiracy theories about violent behavior but then stealth-edited its story to remove the smear without noting an update or correction.

Target’s vice president for brand marketing is Carlos Saavedra, who has served on the board of the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network — or GLSEN, which is pronounced “glisten.” The organization has advocated for gender transitions for children.

Bud Light Donates $200,000 to Support LGBTQ+ Businesses amid Boycott

Bud Light announced a $200,000 donation to the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) on Tuesday as the company suffers from declining sales amid a boycott over the company’s partnership with transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney.

Conservative activists launched a Bud Light boycott on April 1 after Mulvaney shared a video to social media showing off a Bud Light can that bore his likeness and claimed, “this month I celebrated my day 365 of womanhood.”

Despite Bud Light sales plummeting and parent company Anheuser-Busch’s market value dropping, Bud Light will support the NGLCC’s Communities of Color Initiative.

The initiative is “designed to support the growth and success of minority LGBTQ+-owned businesses through certification, scholarships and business development in an effort to create equal opportunities for the economic advancement of small businesses in the LGBTQ+ community,” according to a press release.

Bud Light will also support the initiative’s “Biz Pitch” program, which allows minority LGBTQ+ business owners to compete for a $5,000 grant and the opportunity to compete for a $50,000 grand prize at the NGLCC’s annual business and leadership conference.

“Bud Light was brewed to be an ‘Easy to Drink, Easy to Enjoy’ beer for everyone 21+ and that still holds true today,” said Anheuser-Busch. “We look forward to extending our work with the NGLCC to continue making a positive impact on the LGBTQ+ businesses that play a critical role in bringing people everywhere, together.”

“We’re honored to continue our partnership with Bud Light in support of LGBTQ+ businesses,” the NGLCC said in a press release. “We appreciate the brand’s ongoing efforts to bolster our Communities of Color Initiative that empowers and supports both minority LGBTQ+ business owners and entrepreneurs, as well as the vital roles they play in communities across the United States.”

The $200,000 donation adds to the more than $13 million Anheuser-Busch has donated to support LGBTQ+ causes over the past two decades.

On Tuesday, it was reported that Bud Light sales crashed nearly 30 percent for the week of May 20 compared to last year. Further, Anheuser-Busch’s market value has fallen by $15.7 billion since the boycott began. On March 31, the company’s stock was worth $66, but now it is down to $54.

LGBTQ Radicals Send Target Bomb Threats After Pride Month Merchandise Pullback

LGBTQ radicals reportedly deluged Target with bomb threats in retaliation to the retail giant pulling back on some of its Pride Month merchandise after significant backlash.

The bomb threats were allegedly made against several Target stores in at least three states: Utah, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. An email to one Cleveland store that Cleveland 19 News reviewed indicated that radical LGBTQ activists may have been behind the threats.

“Target is full of cowards who turned their back on the LGBT community and decided to cater to the homophobic right-wing redneck bigots who protested and vandalized their store,” the email reportedly read.

In Utah, Salt Lake City police communications director Brent Weisberg told USA TODAY that officers determined that no “credible threat” had been directed at the two stores in the city.

“Officers will continue neighborhood patrols around the Target locations in Salt Lake City out of an abundance of caution,” Weisberg said in a statement.

“We encourage anyone who sees anything suspicious to immediately call 911,” he added.

Target said in a statement that stores will remain open and with regular hours, entrusting the matter to law enforcement.

“Law enforcement investigated these claims and determined our stores are safe,” the company said.

Bomb threats were also made to Target stores in Layton, Taylorsville, and Provo. Sgt. John Ottesen with Layton Police also told the CBS affiliate KUTV 2 News that the bomb threats directed toward the area’s Target mentioned Pride Merchandise and came from a “bogus email address.”

As Breitbart News reported last week, Target sparked considerable backlash with the release of its LGBTQIA2S+ “Pride Collection” for the month of June — including clothes from U.K.-based designer Abprallen, whose past work included the phrases “Satan loves you” and “Satan respects pronouns.” Other items included in the Pride Collection were “tuck-friendly” bathing suits typically designed for male genitalia in women’s styles. In response to the massive backlash, Target pulled some of the items from its stores, charging that team members received “threats” without citing evidence.

“Since introducing this year’s collection, we’ve experienced threats impacting our team members’ sense of safety and well-being while at work,” Target said in a statement.

“Given these volatile circumstances, we are making adjustments to our plans, including removing items that have been at the center of the most significant confrontational behavior,” the company added.

LGBTQ activists accused Target of abandoning their commitment to the cause in the face of political backlash.

“Extremist groups and individuals work to divide us and ultimately don’t just want rainbow products to disappear, they want us to disappear,” Kelley Robinson, president of the Human Rights Campaign, said in a statement. “For the past decade, the LGBTQ+ community has celebrated Pride with Target −it’s time that Target stands with us and doubles-down on their commitment to us.”
