Now apparently, according to the WSJ, the CEO never would have agreed with this announcement had he known about it.
Here is his quote:
Target CEO Brian Cornell never approved the post and found out about it only after it was published, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Now since this uproar the left threw after the company said this their sales have soared. Chick-fil-A keeps growing despite uproar | Atlanta: News, Weather and Traffic
