On Friday, radio talk show host Glenn Beck related a story that explains why so many — well over a million — have pledged to boycott Target.
According to Beck, a Target store refused to remove a “creepy” guy from the ladies’ restroom. A post at Beck’s website said:
“So yesterday, Bailey, who is our makeup artist, we’re sitting in the makeup chair, and you know how us gals get when we’re sitting in the makeup chair. We just gab. So she said a friend of hers went into a Target, and there was this creepy guy who was just leaning up against the wall in the bathroom,” Glenn said. When the young woman looked at him as if to question, “What are you doing here?” he said, “I have every right to be here, and you can’t do anything about it.” She immediately left and reported the incident to Target management.
Their response? “I’m sorry. We can’t do anything about that.” Target refused to remove the creepy guy — not transgender, not dressed as a woman, not using the restroom — from the women’s facilities. “This is their own policy,” Glenn said. “This is not the government forcing you to do this. This is Target saying, ‘I’m sorry, we can’t do anything about it because it will make him uncomfortable.’”
Here’s video of Beck’s comments:
“It’s why my wife won’t shop there anymore,” said one of Beck’s co-hosts.
“My wife won’t either,” Beck added.
It’s not known exactly which Target store this took place at, but it’s not surprising, given that the company has refused to back off of its bathroom policy.
