Too Soon? Target Pulls Offensive Greeting Card Mocking Whitney Houston

Throw another log on the fire in the Whitney Houston posthumous drama. In addition to photos of Whitney in her casket, to the waiting list of people who are dying (no pun intended) to stay in the hotel room where the diva passed away, greeting cards at Target are at the center of the latest controversy.

The greeting card – which was being sold at Target before the passing of Whitney Houston – reads, “Next time you think of dating the bad boy; consider Whitney Houston.”

Target has already acknowledged the card, and is now in the process of removing them from shelves nationwide.

“The card was in our stores prior to Ms. Houston’s death. As soon as this was brought to our attention, we began the process of removing the card from all applicable stores,” a rep for the retailer revealed.

Do you think that Target should receive any negative flack for this, or was this just an unfortunate coincidence that Target has already swiftly taken the right steps to correct?
