Target in Hot Waters: Shoplifting, Satanism, and a Struggling Strategy

YouTube player

Taking a detour from the typical merchandise lineup, Target, affectionately referred to as “Tarjay”, finds itself caught in a fiery controversy. The retail giant recently partnered with UK-based brand AB Rebellion to sell merchandise promoting LGBTQ+ messages for Pride Month. But the collection has done more than just raise a few eyebrows – it’s sparked outrage among conservatives. Why? AB Rebellion’s designer, Eric Carnell, is an outspoken Satanist. His brand is awash with provocative imagery and bold statements like “Satan respects pronouns”, quite a unique selling proposition, especially for those residing in the Bible Belt.

Ironically, Tarjay finds itself on the receiving end of accusations from conservatives and parents’ rights advocates on social media, just as it was grappling with its controversial ‘tuck-friendly’ swimsuits. These were designed for those who hadn’t fully transitioned yet, an innovative product no doubt, but one that’s left some customers feeling a bit uncomfortable. While Carnell defends his Satan-themed merchandise as tongue-in-cheek and metaphorical, the humor seems lost on most of Tarjay’s disgruntled customers.

Adding to Tarjay’s woes is a report on the increasing rates of shoplifting in their stores. The company’s response, or lack thereof, to the issues at hand has left customers baffled. Now, as the store faces harsh criticism for its merchandise decisions and security failures, many are left wondering, “What is Tarjay doing?” The once-beloved retail giant seems to have lost touch with its customer base, leaving many to question its future trajectory.
