Pizza Hut is facing criticism for promoting a “drag kids” book for part of its reading incentive program
The pizza/fast-food giant, Pizza Hut, faces serious backlash for its promoting of child drag queen books in its reading incentive program.
Pizza Hut’s “Book It!” program is intended to get kids to read by rewarding them with “praise, recognition, and pizza,” which would under other circumstances be an acceptable program.
However, due to the inclusion of LGBT books on the reading list which is geared towards children from pre-K to third grade, many conservatives and other decent human beings are outraged.
From Fox News:
The “Book It!” website features the book “Big Wig,” which is described as a “wonderful read-aloud” book that “celebrates the universal childhood experience of dressing up and the confidence that comes with putting on a costume.”

The book is geared towards children in pre-kindergarten up to third grade. The Simon & Schuster website boasts that the “Big Wig” picture book “celebrates drag kids.”
“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 states.
This particular recommended book is about children being drag queens–something the left has become obsessive over in recent months.
Naturally, radical leftists will celebrate this move by woke Pizza Hut. However, people with common decency are condemning it and some even call for a boycott of Pizza Hut.
“Pizza Hut has gone full woke, now we must make them full broke,” conservative author Brigitte Gabriel 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? @mschlapp @JackPosobiec @kylenabecker

Boycott Pizza Hut, order from Papa John’s instead.
Better ingredients. Better pizza. No wokeness.

The reprehensible book is being featured to celebrate “Pride Month,” which lasts through June, according to a leaked company email.
Get woke, go broke. Pizza Hut has been struggling in recent years, forced to close hundreds of restaurants and terminate thousands of employees.
Now with the current amplified wokeness leading to calls for boycotts, some may be left wondering “am I going to have to go for Domino’s instead?” as Pizza Hut very well may be forced to close more restaurants.
