Target Under Fire For "Baby Daddy" Card Featuring Black Couple

The inside of the card as noted by a user on Saunders post does include the message'You're a wonderful husband and father- and I'm so grateful to have you as my partner my friend and my baby daddy

So apparently Target and other stores are selling "Baby Daddy" cards for Father's Day.

Retail chain Target is under fire for selling a card featuring a kissing black couple with the words "Baby Daddy" emblazoned on it.

USA Today reports Target pulled the card from its store shelves, while American Greetings, the producer of the card, apologized for its message. "Baby daddy" is "not sweet or nice".

A shopper named Takeisha Saunders first posted an image of the card on May 31 and claimed it was the only card depicting a black couple.
