California Target store plays porn over loudspeakers


Target is currently investigating an incident that occurred at one of its California stores on Wednesday during which pornographic audio was heard over the loudspeakers, Star Tribune reports.

Gina Young, a customer who had been shopping with her two children, recorded a 30-second video and posted it to her Facebook page with the following caption:

This happened today at Target in Campbell, CA. Porn blasting over the intercom throughout the store. People offered to help me cover my twins ears. Others threw [their] stuff down and walked out. Employees were running around everywhere. Picking and hanging up phones, which worked….for about two minutes before it started up again.

People were screaming at employees, video taping, some laughing some disgusted. It was terribly awkward.

As of Thursday afternoon, the video had been shared nearly 3,000 times and viewed by over 160,000 people.

Surprisingly, this isn’t the first time that Target customers have unexpectedly been plagued by pornographic moans broadcast throughout the store. The same thing happened at a Target location in San Luis Obispo back in July, almost 200 miles away from the Campbell store.
