A pro-Trump rap group’s new song, “Boycott Target,” just exploded online. Since its release, it has racked up millions of views and managed to climb to the number 6 spot on the iTunes Charts.In the song, rappers Forgiato Blow, Jimmy Levy, Nick Nittoli, and Stoney Dudebro attack retail giant Target for “targeting” your children with Satanic and sexualized goods.
Those lyrics are in reference to Target’s recent “Pride” apparel decision. It both sold a women’s swimsuit advertised as being “tuck-friendly” and having “extra crotch room,” and had numerous pieces of apparel designed by a Satanist trans person.
Watch the music video, which has so far garnered about 3.6 million views on one Twitter post alone, here:
Why Is #Target Targeting Our Kids?

“There’s a cleanup on every aisle/Target is targetin’ your kids. This agenda’s gotta stop, they know we gonna win,” the song begins. “Target, Target, yeah they targetin’/Target, Target, yeah they target kids,” the song continues.
Conservative influencer Rogan O’Handley, known on Twitter as “D.C. Draino,” said, “There is now a rap song about the Target Boycott. It’s not just an online movement anymore — it’s fully enmeshed in culture. 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’s stock price has fallen dramatically since furor over the swimsuits first rose. In fact, over the course of just a week, Target’s stock price declined from $160.96 to $141.76, as the New York Post reported, saying:
A week ago Wednesday before the controversy erupted, Target’s stock closed at $160.96 a share, giving the big-box chain a market capitalization of $74.3 billion.
As of early trading on Thursday, however, shares of the company were trading off 1% at $141.76 — capping a weeklong tumble that has shrunk the “cheap chic” discount retailer’s value to $65.3 billion.
That amounts to a 12% drop that has shaved a whopping $9 billion off the company’s market capitalization.
US Senator JD Vance has joined the anti-Target figh as well. Announcing his decision to do so on Twitter, Vance said, “Target could have decided to stay out of the culture wars, instead it decided to wage war on a large share of its customer base. I no longer shop at Target, and it seems many families are doing the same.”
That was in response to a series of posts about the Target situation from Turning Point’s Benny Johnson, who said:
“🚨BREAKING 🚨 Target stock has just COLLAPSED to its lowest trading value in a YEAR with no end in sight. For the first time in my life, common sense Americans are standing up for themselves and committing to ACTION. We are the majority. We are winning. We’re just getting started.
“An important reminder that Target is lying to you. Weird that Satanic child sex cult grooming is the line but I’m glad we’re finally activated. @Target is lying.”
