Target: Is Being Preggers Considered ‘Plus Size?’

It wasn’t a holly, jolly Christmas for the big box retailer. First, a breach in its data system caused Christmas to come early for the black market when many Americans’ credit and debit cards were placed in ne’er-do-wells’ stockings. Then, Target was forced to admit that the malevolent hackers also “borrowed” PIN numbers causing considerable panic for shoppers everywhere.

And just when it seems that crisis was under control, comes this:

Target Pregnant

Yes, mothers everywhere, that is a pregnant woman modeling the latest in maternity wear. And yes, she is standing under the header “Merona Women’s Plus-Size Short Sleeve Maxi Dress.” What is most appalling is this isn’t the first time this kerfuffle has happened.

ATTENTION TARGET SHOPPERS: Since your hormones are already raging, feel free to rage on customer service. Mmmmkay? Thanks.
