Target Pulls Greeting Card Mocking Whitney Houston

“It is never our intent to offend guests with the products we offer”

A greeting card that pokes fun at Whitney Houston's relationship with bad boy singer Bobby Brown has been removed from Target store shelves after Houston's death earlier this month.

The card, which was in stories prior to Houston's Grammy-weekend death, reads: "Next time you think of dating the bad boy, consider Whitney Houston. That's all I'm going to say."

"It is never our intent to offend guests with the products we offer, and we take feedback from guests very seriously," Target said in a statement. "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."

TMZ first reported the retailer's decision to remove the greeting card from its stores.
