Target Stores Remove Offensive Whitney Houston Greeting Cards

From rumored biopics to a live-streamed funeral, the late Whitney Houston has been the subject of a great deal of press attention lately.

So why are Target stores scrambling to get her out of their stores as quickly as possible?

Prior to the singer's passing, the company had a greeting card on its shelves that read, "Next time you think of dating the bad boy, consider Whitney Houston. That's all I'm going say."

As soon as the news of Houston's death hit, Target stores quickly began working to remove the card.

"The card was in our stores prior to Houston's death," a Target rep told TMZ. "As soon as this was brought to our attention, we began the process of removing the card from all applicable stores."

Head over to TMZ to see the card in question.
