Target retailers have removed from its shelves a greeting card that makes fun of Whitney Houston's choices in men.

The card's inside text advises women to be more selective when picking mates. "Next time you think of dating the bad boy, consider Whitney Houston," the card reads.

Bobby Brown, Houston's estranged ex-husband, is believed to be the inspiration behind the card's "bad boy" reference. Houston and Brown were married for 14 years and divorced in 2007. Houston had accused Brown of domestic violence, and some blame Brown for Houston's downward spiral.

A backlash began when a picture of the card appeared on after Houston's death. The card, however, was released before Houston died.
