Super retailer Target says it will not carry the album because of the album’s early release, but Ocean’s manager Christian Clancy is accusing the store of being homophobic. In a tweet, Clancy wrote:
“Target has refused to carry Franks album due to iTunes exclusive. Interesting since they also donate to non equal rights organizations.”
The tweet has since been deleted but the sting remains, whether due to business or outside factors that the retail giant won’t carry the album. Though Target sells albums by other gay artists, it’s interesting amidst the hype of Frank Ocean’s coming out that they won’t sell his album.
What do you think Gumbumpers??
