Imagine walking down the card aisle looking for a Father’s Day card and BOOM, issa Baby Daddy card for your kid’s dad.
Well, that’s what seems to have happened at Target recently when a photo of an insensitive card went viral on social media. People were livid when they paid closer attention to see that the couple in the background are black! It was clear Target was trying to be funny and slick with the baby daddy card sales.
Why do these big company’s do the dumbest stuff?
After social media read them for filth, Target’s spokesperson, Joshua Thomas, put out a statement, “We want all guests to feel welcomed and respected when they shop at Target. We were made aware of some concerns about this card last week and are working with our vendor to have it removed from Target stores. We appreciate the feedback and apologize. It’s never our intent to offend any of our guests with the products we sell.”
