According to TMZ on Wednesday, February 29, 2012, Target decided to pull out the greeting card being sold in their stores, which is being believed to be mocking the late “I Will Always Love You” singer.
“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.” A rep of Target told TMZ.
As noted in the greeting card, a message says, “Next time you think of dating the bad boy, consider Whitney Houston. that’s all i’m going to say”, and a photo of it was posted at Reddit.com, a forum site, and received different opinions.
Apparently, the “bad boy” is being referred to Bobby Brown, Houston‘s ex-husband, who was said to be a ‘bad influence’ to the “Bodyguard” star since they got married, and had also an issue during the funeral.
Last week, US newspaper National Enquirer became controversial after posting a photo of Whitney Houston inside her casket, which was believed to be taken inside the Whigham Funeral Home in Newark, New Jersey, during the funeral eve.
