Jesus Take The Wheel: Target Apologizes For ‘baby daddy' Father's Day Card!
Target officials have apologized for offering greeting cards with the phrase “baby daddy” ahead of Father’s Day and are working to pull them from store shelves. Some say that this is an insult to Black Wives and their children. Not every Black woman chooses to have children out of wedlock. There are some of us who still have traditional values and are proud of that. Even if they did put other ethnicities on the cover of this card, it would still be an insult.
The card, which shows a black couple kissing, sparked backlash on social media after customers like TaKeisha Saunders shared their outrage: "It was the only card that featured a black couple," she said. "My husband is not my baby daddy." The card company, American Greetings, says it communicated "unintentional meaning that we are strongly against perpetuating" and has pulled it from all retailers.
