Whitney greetings card withdrawn

US retailer Target is withdrawing a greetings card that makes fun of the late singer Whitney Houston's penchant for bad boys.

The company said the card was being sold in its stores before Houston's death on February 11, but as soon as it was brought to its attention it began "the process of removing the card".

The card read: "Next time you think of dating the bad boy, consider Whitney Houston."

The text referred to Houston's rocky relationship with ex-husband and singer Bobby Brown.

"It is never our intent to offend guests with the products we offer, and we take feedback from guests very seriously," said Target.

Houston, 48, was found dead hours before she was to attend a pre-Grammy Awards party.
