Target Houston Card
February 29, 2012 by staff
Target Houston Card, A greeting card could have Target in big trouble with Whitney Houston fans thanks to its message slamming the late singer.
The card, which was sold before Houston died, reads: “Next time you think of dating the bad boy, consider Whitney Houston.”
The line references Houston’s tumultuous relationship with ex-husband Bobby Brown, which many people blame for the late singer’s alleged drug use.
After the card was spotted by a Reddit.com poster, the store told TMZ they quickly began pulling it after Houston’s death earlier this month.
“The card was in our stores prior to Ms. Houston’s death,” a Target rep told the website. “As soon as this was brought to our attention, we began the process of removing the card from all applicable stores.”
Target isn’t the first corporation to feel the wrath of Houston fans after her death. Sony Music apologized for elevated prices on the singer’s album shortly after the singer’s death, calling it a “internal mistake due to an employee error.”
The statement came after users complained that the price on British iTunes jumped 60 percent for a short time after Houston’s death.
“Whitney Houston product was mistakenly mispriced on the U.K. iTunes store on Sunday,” a statement issued by Sony read at the time, according to The Wrap. “When discovered, the mistake was immediately corrected. We apologize for any offense caused.”
