Pizza Hut is under fire for promoting a “drag kids” book as part of its reading incentive program.
Pizza and fast-food giant Pizza Hut is facing serious criticism for promoting ‘drag queen’ children’s books as part of its reading incentive program.
The Book It! by Pizza Hut aims to inspire children to read by rewarding them with “praise, recognition and pizza”, which in other circumstances would be an acceptable program.
However, due to the inclusion of LGBT books in the K-3 reading list, many conservatives and other decent human beings are outraged.
According to Fox News: The Book It! features the book ‘Big Wig’, which is described as a ‘wonderful read-aloud’ book that ‘celebrates the universal childhood experience of dressing up and the confidence that comes with putting on a costume’ .
This book is for children in kindergarten through third grade. The Simon & Schuster website boasts that the “Big Wig” picture book “celebrates the dragon children”.
“In the spirit of Julián Is a Mermaid, this irrepressible picture book celebrates dragon children, individuality and self-confidence from the perspective of a fabulous wig,” reads the description.
This particular recommended book deals with kids who are drag queens, a subject that has obsessed the left in recent months.
Naturally, radical leftists will celebrate this Pizza Hut initiative. However, people of good will condemn it and some even call for a boycott of Pizza Hut.
Pizza Hut has gone completely ‘woke’ now we have to make them completely broke,” tweeted conservative author Brigitte Gabriel.
The objectionable book is being featured to celebrate “Pride Month”, which lasts until June, according to a leaked email from the company.
Waking up, breaking down. Pizza Hut has struggled in recent years, forced to close hundreds of restaurants and lay off thousands of employees.
Today, with the amplification of wokeness leading to calls for boycotts, some might wonder “if I’m going to have to go for Domino’s instead”, as Pizza Hut may well be forced to close other restaurants.
