Target Says It’s Sorry for Anti-Semitic ‘Cards Against Humanity’ Pack

The ”Chosen People Pack,“ an expansion to the popular card game, features anti-Jewish phrases

Target has apologized for selling an offensive expansion pack to the popular party game “Cards Against Humanity,” and says it is in the process of removing the “Chosen People Pack” from its stores.

“We are aware of this extended card pack of the game Cards Against Humanity and are in the process of removing it from our stores,” Target’s customer service Twitter account said Thursday in response to a customer’s tweet with a picture of the pack. “We apologize for any disappointment as it is never our intention to offend our guests with the products we carry. Thank you!”

The makers of Cards Against Humanity did not immediately respond to The Wrap’s request for comment.

The pictures of the pack posted on Twitter included cards that say “Torturing Jews until they say they’re not Jews anymore,” “The part of Anne Frank’s diary where she talks about her vagina,” and “Can’t you see? The Jews are behind everything–the banks, the media, even ____!”

The game — which was once played by the “Glee” cast on “Ellen” — touts itself as “a party game for horrible people” and features what many may deem as offensive cards in its regular pack. To play, one person picks a black card and the rest of the group responds with a white card, usually going for the funniest or dirtiest card they can, and the player who’s turn it is picks the winner.

Other expansion packs include the Weed pack, the Period pack and the Sci-Fi pack.

Twitter users in the comments to Target’s statement noted that the game is “made to offend,” and that there are racial references in the base pack as well. Several also said the makers of the game are Jewish themselves.
