This fake Target account has been attacking transphobes…and it’s great

A fake customer service account, pretending to be US superstore Target, has been putting transphobic people in their place.

The store introduced an inclusive restroom and changing room policy last month, which allowed trans people to use the facilities of the gender they identified with.

Since then, it has faced a barrage of abuse and threatened with several boycotts.

Taking to social media, a number of small minded individuals have attacked the store for its policy and said that they no longer plan to shop there. This is where ‘Target Customer Service’ steps in.

The parody account has been putting people in their place and it’s hilarious.

Check out a few of the responses below:  

Someone needs to go back to school



Some of them are a bit confused 


Hopefully, Sharia will just do her thing

Turns out Walmart don’t like you either

Bet you Target sell a cream for that


Manners are important


It seems that cousins raise the best kids


If all else fails…just get sassy!

Since the introduction of the policy, a number of conservative groups have attempted to take action over it. This includes the American Family Association who organised a petition of over 660,000 signatures.

After Target announced its discontinuation of separating toys based on gender, many took to its Facebook page to complain and hilarity ensued when they were trolled by this ‘customer service’ account..

This woman probably didn’t expect to be greeted with THIS response when she tried to troll Campbell’s Soup over a pro-gay ad.
