'Woke' Pizza Hut Pushing 'Drag' Book To Kids As Young As Pre-K

'Woke' Pizza Hut Pushing 'Drag' Book To Kids As Young As Pre-K

Pizza Hut has joined the growing list of American corporations that have gone “woke” and is now facing a boycott of its restaurants.

The retail food chain is getting backlash for featuring an extremely controversial book about a young boy who dresses in drag that targets kids as young as four years old.

BizPac Review notes:

The pizza chain has a reading club called “Book It!” that has been in existence since 1984. The program awards children certificates from their school for reading books. Those certificates can then be turned in for free pizza.

The chain restaurant sent an email prior to its summer program “Camp Book It!” which began on June 1 and it has kicked up a firestorm of outrage and protest among parents.

“Big Wig,” written by Jonathan Hillman, recounts the story of a little boy who likes to dress in drag and dons a wig that gives magical powers to those who wear it. The inclusion of the book is for Pride Month, according to Pizza Hut.

“When a child dresses in drag to compete in a neighborhood costume competition, he becomes B. B. Bedazzle! A key part of B.B. Bedazzle’s ensemble is a wig called Wig. Together they are an unstoppable drag queen team! But Wig feels inadequate compared to the other, bigger wigs. When Wig flies off B. B.’s head, she goes from kid to kid instilling confidence and inspiring dreams in those who wear her,” the book’s description says.

The Libs of TikTok Twitter account highlighted the tome:

Other accounts also ‘outed’ the book and Pizza Hut’s involvement in getting it distributed:

“In the spirit of ‘Julián Is a Mermaid,’ this irrepressible picture book celebrates drag kids, individuality, and self-confidence from the perspective of a fabulous wig!” the description adds.

Simon and Schuster published the book in February, BizPac Review reported. The “Book It!” description notes that the tome “[c]elebrates the universal childhood experience of dressing up and the confidence that comes with putting on a costume.”

“And it goes further than that, acknowledging that sometimes dressing differently from what might be expected is how we become our truest and best selves,” according to the book’s website.

Critics sacked Pizza Hut online for its woke virtue signal.

Jack Posobiec, the editor of Human Events, tweeted in response, “I warned you about what Pizza Hut had become but you weren’t ready to hear it.”

Conservative talk radio host Todd Starnes tweeted, “Over the past few years #pizzahut has had to close hundreds of restaurants. Maybe they should spend more time perfecting their pizza instead of grooming preschoolers to be drag queens?”

“Pizza Hut was started in Wichita and mostly funded by Kansans these folks would be appalled that their amazing American success story is part of the effort to destroy America and her children,” American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp wrote. “These companies need to realize we won’t use their products any longer.”
