Pizza Hut Faces Backlash After Promoting Drag Queen Book for Kids

Restaurant chain Pizza Hut is facing criticism and boycott calls after recommending a book about a child drag queen in its reading program for children.

The recommendation was made as part of the company’s BOOK IT program that aims to encourage reading in schools nationwide. This year’s program began on June 1, and the company included a book called “Big Wig” in its recommendations, which is about a young boy protagonist who decides to dress in drag during a costume competition.

In an email sent as part of the program launch, the company said that the recommended books explore the “uniqueness” of every person, celebrating “individuality” and encouraging children to see what “makes us different, makes us special,” according to the Washington Examiner.

Big Wig, written by Minnesota author Jonathan Hillman, “celebrates drag kids,” individuality, and self-confidence from the “perspective of a fabulous wig,” said publisher Simon & Schuster on their website.

“When a child dresses in drag to compete in a neighborhood costume competition, he becomes B. B. Bedazzle!” the description of the book says. “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.”

After the popular Twitter account “Libs of TikTok” brought attention to Pizza Hut’s “Big Wig” recommendation, the backlash began.

Brigitte Gabriel, founder and chairman of ACT For America, a grassroots movement dedicated to preserving America’s culture, sovereignty, and security, called on making “full woke” Pizza Hut “full broke.”

Nick Adams, President of the Foundation for Liberty & American Greatness (FLAG), slammed Pizza Hut for having “betrayed” the American people in a June 4 tweet. He asked “every single American” to boycott “woke pizza.”

Joe Pags Pagliarulo, a syndicated talk show host, asked whether Pizza Hut is “looking to lose millions of customers” by promoting the queer book to children.

“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. These companies need to realize we won’t use their products any longer,” Matt Schlapp, chairman of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the largest annual gathering of conservatives in the world, said in a June 3 tweet.

Pizza Hut did not respond to The Epoch Times’ request for comment by publication time.

In addition to the Pizza Hut book promotion, several incidents of pushing drag literature and entertainment on children have popped up of late.

The Ramstein U.S. Air Force Base in Germany canceled a June 2 event called “Drag Queen Story Time” aimed at children after Republican Senator Marco Rubio wrote a letter asking for canceling of what he called “public-funded propaganda.”

Last month, insurance giant State Farm pulled off from a program that involved giving transgender books to schools after it faced backlash.

Concerns over D.C. juries, judges in wake of Sussmann trial
Some conservatives are, once again, sounding the alarm over the D.C. jury pool following the Sussmann trial. One America’s Stefan Kleinhenz has more.

Talking our Way out of Rocky Horror:
Why Gender Restoration is the Culture War
Will there be any culture left when the culture war is over? Our culture is what we hand on to our children, but the West isn’t having children. The birth rates are down, and people are wondering why we aren’t having babies. Our men and women aren’t making big families and our communities are becoming sterile and childless. This is a crisis that’s been building for generations. Sterility is the real climate change crisis of our time. The poles are melting but it’s not the ice caps, it’s the sex symbols.

We have trashed our sex symbols in only three generations. The icons of male and female have been ruined by equality of the sexes, and the West has become almost indistinguishable from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. We’re being terrorized by maniacal transvestites who want a genderless future. And yet the men and women who are opposed to the destruction of their sex are not unifying to revolt and create families. Without cultivating families, we have no culture. So how were we spoiled and sterilized in the first place?

We dressed our children in pink and blue, but we didn’t colour their language. We forgot to talk to children as future mothers and fathers. How we talk to our children is how we cultivate them, and the LGBT cultists grooming your kids understand this. They want to destroy sexual dimorphism and warp gender from the cradle. Their obsession with linguistics and sexual identity hits the foundation of our civilization. It’s why they are in kindergartens to enforce their barbarous dialect on your children. Our mother tongue is under attack and the maniacs are on target. They understand what conservatives have forgotten: that masculine men and feminine women are created through language.

Another Government Agency Is Being Weaponized to Go After Conservatives
I don’t mean to be the wet blanket here. We should celebrate liberals freaking out over Elon Musk’s $44 billion Twitter purchase. We should be celebrating the end of censorship and a new era of free speech on the platform. It’s a huge win for conservatives, but the war is far from being over. As with these victories, we face another, larger battle on the horizon. The enemy is not new; it’s the government again. Yet, this time they’re taking the Twitter ethos regarding “disinformation” national.

Very interesting. It seems that #elonmusk now owns 9% of #twitter and is the Majority Shareholder. As a "free speech absolutist" he may bring former President #trump back to Twitter. He also may push to unban all the accounts that were banned in the past. Not that I'd want to go back. I'm quite happy here.

The Socialist pulled the wool over their eyes. LMAO, this Dimwit doesn't know what party she's in. She was a Republican in #Hawaii , then a #democrat . This is what I mean that Most #conservatives and #republicans in Hawaii are RINOs (this includes the voters). They don't understand what it means to be either Conservative or Republican. Most of the population thinks they can just switch parties, like just slapping a label on themselves. It's not that simple. Unfortunately, this applies to many places across the Continental US as well.

There is no comeback for #republicans . Not in 2022, not in 2024. True Conservatives & Patriots are fed up, and I won't waste my time voting for any of them. We just won't vote at all. If the two party system continues, then it's over before the vote.

If you've wondered why there's a divide in the right, it's because there are people in the right calling themselves "conservatives" when they are not conservatives. The Great Culling is coming, when they will ultimately shame themselves out of society.

I do not claim to be conservative. I stopped when I realized my place on the political spectrum.
