Target Pulls Whitney Houston’Bad Boy’ Greeting Card


Target is pulling a greeting card
that makes fun of the late singer
Whitney Houston **’s penchant
for bad boys.
The discounter said Wednesday
the card was sold in its stores
prior to Houston’s death on Feb.
11, and as soon as it was
brought to the retailer’s
attention, Target Corp. began
“the process of removing the
card.”
The card reads: “Next time you
think of dating the bad boy,
consider Whitney Houston.”
The text refers to Houston’s
rocky relationship with ex-
husband and singer Bobby
Brown. Brown has been blamed
by some for Houston’s reported
drug use.
“It is never our intent to offend
guests with the products we
offer, and we take feedback
from guests very seriously,” said
Target in a statement emailed to
The Associated Press.
Houston, 48, was found dead
hours before she was to attend
a pre-Grammy Awards party. No
cause of death has been
determined.
