Target Apologizes For 'Baby Daddy' Father's Day Cards


Target is saying sorry for selling "Baby Daddy" cards for Father's Day. 

Takeisha Saunders posted a Father's Day Card from Target that was found insulting. The card featured one stereotyped race and after being posted on Facebook it had a huge social media reaction. After all the reactions and social media complaints, Target removed all cards from their shelves and apologized. 

"We should do better in the future, and we will. We have notified our store merchandisers to remove the card from the shelves and apologize for any offense we’ve caused."

"We want all guests to feel welcomed and respected when they shop at Target," Joshua Thomas, spokesperson for Target, told BuzzFeed News on Wednesday.

"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," he said. "We appreciate the feedback and apologize. It’s never our intent to offend any of our guests with the products we sell."

Do you think this was the right move for Target or that people are becoming too sensitive?
