Man trolls angry Target shoppers LOL

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

Man trolls angry Target shoppers LOL

Target stores have decided to do away with separate Boy/Girl selection of toys. This guy set up a fake Target site to respond to angry shoppers, who will no longer know whether the toys they buy are for boys or girls. %)
After Target announced that they would be making their toy section gender neutral—no signs demarcating toys for “girls” or “boys”—some people were upset by the move and took to Target’s Facebook page. They didn’t expect the response they got from user Mike Melgaard, who pretended to be an official Target customer service account.

All Melgaard needed to fuel outrage and confusion was a Facebook account he created called Ask ForHelp that sported Target’s bullseye logo. Ask ForHelp was obviously not verified, but most people didn’t care, interacting with Melgaard and growing increasingly irate as he trolled their gender neutral hatin’ ways...
