In its campaign, introduced last week, One Million Moms – a division of American Family Association – said Amazon-owned Whole Foods was “a retailer that once promoted organics and clean food,” but now is “exploiting America’s children to be ‘groomed’ by drag queens.”
Whole Foods was a primary sponsor of the Drag Queen Story Hour in Atlanta, an event that had been endorsed by the city’s mayor, Keisha Lance Bottoms. NBA’s Atlanta Hawks and NFL’s Atlanta Falcons also sponsored the event held in June at city hall.
