Target is in trouble – at least with some of it’s customers.
Some shoppers are really ticked off about this “Trophy” t-shirt being sold at the retail chain.
They say it’s sexist and treats women like objects. And there’s even a petition on Change.org to get it removed from Target. With 13,000 signatures and counting.
Target has responded to the backlash by saying, “It is never our intention to offend anyone and we always appreciate receiving feedback from our guests. The shirt you’re describing is part of a collection of engagement and wedding shirts that are available in our women’s and plus size departments. The collection also included shirts that say ‘Team Bride,’ ‘Mrs.’ and ‘Bride.’ These shirts are intended as a fun wink and we have received an overwhelmingly positive response from our guests.”
But seriously, who would even wear a shirt like that?!
Oh never mind. I guess I would. Because I bought this sweatshirt like 4 years ago (not from Target).
My beef with the Target Trophy shirt is that it appears to be sort of unflattering and you can basically see through the material.
Plus, many shoppers on social media have said it’s hanging in the Juniors department and as a mom to three girls, I would not be happy to see it there. Fun wink or not.
But as a fun novelty gift for adults? I don’t see a problem with it. But where is the male equivalent?!
Your move Target.
