Target CEO Tries To Calm OUTRAGE With THESE Words!

Less than a month ago, Target publicly released their companywide policy that essentially allows any man to enter the women's restroom or fitting room at any of their locations. The decision sparked a massive outcry from conservatives and other common sense individuals who felt the safety of women and girls in Target restrooms was being jeopardized. Now, after a Boycott Target Pledge gained 1.2 million signatures, the CEO of the company has finally spoken.

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Target CEO Brian Cornell doubled-down on Target's policy and sought to calm the outrage.

“We want to make sure we provide a welcoming environment for all of our guests," he said during a CNBC appearance. "One that is safe, one that is comfortable. We took a stance. We’re going to continue to embrace our belief in diversity and inclusion, just how important that is to our company.

What about the comfort of women who are very uneasy about having a man share a bathroom when them and their daughter?

Cornell then compared the outcry over genderless bathrooms to racism, remarking that Target received a lot of flak in the '60s when they first used black models in their advertising.

He explained, “Back then, it wasn’t well received. We had a lot of tough feedback. But sitting here today, we know we made the right decision.”

And as for addressing the safety concerns of women and girls?

"We’re also going to make sure our focus on safety is unwavering,” Cornell assured.
