Greeting Card Mocking Whitney Houston's Troubled Marriage Taken Off Shelves


Whitney Houston


'It is never our intent to offend guests with the products we offer,' explains Target as the retailer decides to remove the card which text refers to Houston's rocky relationship with Bobby Brown.

Target is pulling greeting card that makes fun of the late Whitney Houston off its stores' shelves. The retail giant releases a statement announcing its decision to remove the card just weeks after the "It's Not Right but It's Okay" singer was found dead in the bathtub of her Beverly Hills hotel room.

"The card was in our stores prior to Ms. Houston's death," a representative for the retailer explained in a statement. "As soon as this was brought to our attention, we began the process of removing the card from all applicable stores." The rep also said, "It is never our intent to offend guests with the products we offer, and we take feedback from guests very seriously."

The controversial card itself made a reference to Houston's troubled marriage to ex-husband Bobby Brown, who has been blamed by many for the singer's addiction to drugs. Its text read, "Next time you think of dating the bad boy, consider Whitney Houston. That's all I'm going to say."

Houston, who was married to Brown for nearly five years before divorcing in 2007, passed away on February 11. She was found underwater and unconscious in bathtub of the Beverly Hills hotel. Her death certificate listed her cause of death as "deferred" and noted the manner of death as "pending investigation", but the latest report suggested that her tragic passing is likely to be officially ruled an accident.
