Small Bite: Target refuses to sell #Frank_Ocean new album bc of sexual orientation? #SayItAIntSo

Full Platter:

Singer Frank Ocean has sparked a lot of talk lately ever since he addressed a public letter stating he is gay. It seems the conversation is ranging anywhere from genuine supporters like fellow artist and R&B queen Beyonce, along with singer Ne-Yo, to straight up haters -- like Target?

According to reports, the retail store Target is refusing to sell Frank's new album "Channel Orange." His representative had recently tweeted a statement regarding this odd matter: "Target has refused to carry Franks album because of Itunes exclusive. Interesting since they also donate to non equal rights organizations."

Is it a coincidence that Frank just came out and now they are Frank Ocean haters? Is it a coincidence that Target is allied to Tom Emmer, a Republican candidate, who does not support gay-rights? Hmmm, I'm not liking how this is adding up...

What do you guys think? One FAT coincidence? Or are the secrets coming out and we're getting to know the real Target? Share your comments below, we'd love to hear.
