Target recently pulled an offensive greeting card from shelves, that poked fun at Whitney Houston. The card (pictured above) read, “Next time you think of dating the bad boy, consider Whitney Houston, that’s all I’m going to say.”

TMZ reports that Target decided to pull the card because it’s offensive to Whitney and her downward spiral and in bad taste due to her death.

A store rep stated, “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.”

At least Target has some common decency to respect the dead, but talk about an ironic cruel joke!
