Target Stores Pull Whitney Houston Greeting Card

Alex Wong/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- In light of Whitney Houston's death, a greeting card that poked fun at the late singer is not so funny anymore - at least according to Target. The greeting card, which mocked Houston's tumultuous relationship with ex-husband Bobby Brown, was recently pulled from Target stores, according to a report by TMZ.

The card reads: "Next time you think of dating the bad boy, consider Whitney Houston. That's all I'm going to say."

A Target rep told TMZ that the card was available in stores before Houston's Feb. 11 death and has since been pulled from store shelves, according to TMZ.

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

Target did not respond to ABC News' request for comment.

The six-time Grammy winner was married to R&B singer Bobby Brown from 1992 to 2006. Many cite their turbulent relationship as a force behind her professional fall from grace and descent into drug addiction. The couple had one daughter together, Bobbi Kristina, born in 1993.
