A card that was fairly funny before Whitney’s passing has become quite offensive in the aftermath. This greeting card (above) has been available for quite some time but now that Whit is no longer living, it can be taken as a joke about her death and Target isn’t trying to go there. They’ve decided to yank the cards from all of their stores, as they should! More on the story below.

The card — available long before Whitney died — pokes fun at the singer’s downward spiral in recent years … “Next time you think of dating the bad boy, consider Whitney Houston.”

The card was kinda funny before she died — but now that Whitney’s gone, Target has decided it’s a tad too offensive … at least for now … and is currently in the process of yanking it from its stores.

A rep for the store tells TMZ, “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.”
