Twilight actress Rachelle Lefevre after reportedly moving the LGBTQ+ section in one of its stores "to the back," following conservative backlash over its Pride-themed products on display.Lefevre, who played Victoria in the hit vampire romance movies, said on Thursday in an Instagram video that there is a campaign to "erase" LGBTQ+ people, adding "we're not supposed to negotiate with terrorists."Earlier this week, Target announced it had pulled some of its Pride-themed products after some employees were threatened and harassed by customers over them.

The decision to pull the products from some stores in the South comes just days before the beginning of Pride month in June.

It also comes after recent calls from conservatives to boycott the beer brand Bud Light for its partnership with transgender influencer and activist Dylan Mulvaney.

A Target spokesperson told Insider on Thursday that removing the Pride-products was a response to "threats impacting our team members' sense of safety and wellbeing.""I just walked into Target and right behind me here, where you see all these lovely swimsuits, that's where the Pride display used to be and I came in here two days ago and my 7-year-old, who's non-binary saw it and said, 'Look Mom it's Pride, look they're going to celebrate me,'" Lefevre said in her video, which was filmed inside an unknown Target store.
