Greeting Card Mocking Whitney Houston Pulled From Stores
A greeting card that refers to Whitney Houston and dating bad boys has been pulled from store shelves after some people say it's too insensitive following her death. INSIDE EDITION has the story.
There's outrage over a greeting card that actually mocks Whitney Houston.
The greeting card says: "Next time you think of dating the bad boy, consider Whitney Houston—that's all I'm going to say."
INSIDE EDITION's Paul Boyd had no trouble finding the card for sale at a Target store in New York City.
"It's unbelievable that I was able to walk into the Target store and purchase this Whitney Houston greeting card that really is so insensitive. The card is right there on display for the world to see, and the cashier didn't even bat an eyelash when I purchased the card," said Boyd.
Target now says it is pulling the tasteless card from stores nationwide.
A Target spokesperson says, "This card was in our stores prior to Ms. Houston's death. As soon as this was brought to our attention, we began the process of removing the card from all applicable stores."
Meanwhile, Lindsay Lohan hesitated in a dramatic moment and struggled to speak about Houston's death in an exclusive Today show interview.
"When you heard the news of her death, did any of it register on a personal level with you?" asked the Today show's Matt Lauer.
"Not really. I wouldn't like to... I don't want to go there. That's kind of a scary, morbid thing to discuss," said Lohan.
Lauer asked Lohan if Houston's tragic death has taught her a lesson about the dangers of alcohol and drugs.
"Substance abuse, it can rob talent," said Lauer.
"No, I completely agree. Yeah, you can just kind of completely fall into that world and that's a really scary thing. I've experienced things like that," said Lohan.
Lohan says she's now clean and sober after battling her own substance abuse.
She was promoting her hosting gig on Saturday Night Live this weekend, and a promo has just been released.
Twitter is buzzing about how strangely puffy her face looks now—like she has had work done.
"OMG what happened to Lindsay Lohan's face?" reads one tweet.
"She looks so bloated & her face doesn't move when she talks!" says another.
