Retail giant Walmart said on Wednesday that it has no plans to discontinue or remove LGBT-Pride Month merchandise, a week after rival Target pulled some LGBTQ-themed products following backlash organized by CPAC and the GOP.
Walmart’s Pride-themed merchandise tied to Pride Month includes rainbow-adorned flags, clothing, and accessories. Its “Pride & Joy” collection includes a $7.98 set of enamel pins with messages such as “Be you. Be Proud.” and “You are enough.”
“We haven’t changed anything in our assortment,” Latriece Watkins, Walmart’s chief merchandising officer, said.
