Troubled celebrity chef Pete Evans has made an outrageous claim after sharing a cartoon showing a neo-Nazi symbol cartoon, as more retailers join the long list to cut ties with him.
The disgraced conspiracy theorist has released a video blasting the “mainstream media” for the coverage he has received over the offensive cartoon he shared to his army of followers.
The sharing of the sonnenrad led to him being dumped by his publisher Pan Macmillan, Channel 10’s upcoming season of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here as well as Big W and Dymocks which will strip his cookbooks and kitchenware from their stores.
Now Coles, Target and Kmart are the latest dominoes to fall.
“The health and wellbeing of our customers and communities remains our number one priority. We will not condone or tolerate any form of discrimination or intolerance,” a Kmart Group spokesperson said.
“Unfortunately we feel that recent commentary made by Pete Evans does not reflect our brand values, which is why we have made the decision to remove these book titles from all Kmart and Target stores, effective immediately.”
