Did "leftist activists" loot a Target store in response to the 2023 Target boycott started by right-wingers? No, that's not true: In the tweet making that claim, the image is from 2020, three years before the protest over LGBTQ+ merchandise. The Minneapolis Target was ransacked in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd. There are multiple articles from 2020 that show this specific Target.

The boycott the tweet references is a 2023 response to Target selling LGBTQ+ merchandise, with the boycott mostly led by conservatives.
Seen in the May 26, 2023, tweet is a picture of the outside of a Target. The Target has graffiti on it and trash surrounding it. There are people are standing around also. The creator of this tweet does not offer any supporting evidence that this picture was taken recently, nor does the tweet indicate where this particular store was located.

The headline of the Daily Mail article mentions "Minneapolis," and a Fox Business article confirmed this Target was in Minneapolis, Minnesota and had been vandalized in May 2020, not 2023, as the claim suggests. A photo of the a Target with the same graffiti, but at a different angle, confirmed that this was the same location as the Target seen in the tweet.
The subhead to the Fox article reads, "Five other stores damaged in riots after the killing of George Floyd will remain closed until further notice."
Here is a Yahoo article showing the exact same picture seen in the tweet. The article reports Target's statement on how the company was shutting down more than a dozen Minneapolis locations after the 2020 looting.
