‘Twilight’ actress whines about moving Pride display, says Target now off-limits to 7-yr-old non-binary son

Target may be learning a hard lesson about going “woke” over its promotion of gayness and transgenderism that ignited a firestorm with fed-up shoppers vowing to boycott its stores, and now the backlash is coming at the retail giant from the left side as well with LGBTQ+ advocates lashing out at perceived cowardice after “Pride” displays were relocated from the front of some stores to less visible areas.

One of those whining is actress Rachelle Lefevre who starred in the teen vampire flick “Twilight” and who took to social media to post a tear-sodden video in which she accused the Minneapolis-based corporation of negotiating with “terrorists” who are trying to “erase” LGBTQ+ people and claiming that Target is no longer a safe space for her non-binary seven-year-old kid who she says she won’t take there anymore, at least for the month of June.

The 44-year-old Canadian posted a video to Instagram in which she bemoaned the absence of the rainbow-festooned section for the special demographic for the month that is annually set aside for the worship of their lifestyle in an emotional rant that she nearly broke down sobbing in but managed to hold onto her composure despite the terrible trauma inflicted upon her by a local Target.

“So, I just walked into Target and the um, right behind me here where you see all these lovely swimsuits,” she said, gesturing at the racks of clothing, “that’s where the Pride display used to be.”

“And I came in here two days ago and my seven-year-old, who’s nonbinary, saw it and said, ‘Look, Mom, it’s pride Look, they’re going to celebrate me,’” Lefevre continued, appearing to hold back tears. “And because some people complained and threw some stuff to the ground or I don’t know what happened, they have moved the Pride section to the back of the store.”

“So the next time my seven-year-old comes to Target, or rather I can’t bring him here anymore, at least for the entire month of June, because if they walk in, and all the other people who walk in and go, ‘Where’d it go?’ are going to realize that they are being successful in trying to erase them,” she said.

“We could do so much better than this,” she added. “We’re not supposed to negotiate with terrorists. We can do so much better than this.”

Target’s acknowledgment that the in-your-face promotion of homosexuality may not provide a pleasant shopping environment for all people and moving – but not removing – the merchandise also drew a strong reaction from others in the LGBTQ+ community.

“Target should put the products back on the shelves and ensure their Pride displays are visible on the floors, not pushed into the proverbial closet,” said Kelley Robinson, president of LGBTQ+ pressure group the Human Rights Campaign. “That’s what the bullies want.”

“I know the kind of hate you have to put inside you to numb the hurt,” Lefevre said, in a follow-up video posted to Instagram after people said mean things about her, “So instead of hating back, I just choose to know how much pain you’re in.”
