Target is apologizing to offended customers after shoppers began slamming the retailer for offering “Baby Daddy” greeting cards ahead of Father’s Day, and after one Twitter user calling them “an insult to black fathers and a slap in the face to the African-American community as a whole.”

“We want all guests to feel welcomed and respected when they shop at Target,” Joshua Thomas, a spokesperson for Target, shared in a statement to Fox News. “We were made aware of some concerns about this card last week and are working with our vendor to have it removed from Target stores.

“We appreciate the feedback and apologize. It’s never our intent to offend any of our guests with the products we sell.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Target’s “Baby Daddy” cards first gained attention as early as May 31, when a shopper named Takeisha Saunders shared an image of the card to Facebook, claiming it was the only card the superstore offered featuring a black couple.

“You CANNOT be serious Target!!!! Really!!!?!!!!? This was the only Father’s Day card that featured a black couple!!!!!!” wrote Saunders, who confirmed to Fox News she found the card at a Target location in Rockwall, Texas.

    A baby daddy isn’t just a black thing. They should’ve had multiple cards with different couples on them. I know many white & Hispanic baby daddy’s personally. Geez Target way to go!

    I never heard this term until I was working triage in a ER in Memphis. I asked a young girl “Honey, who hit you in the face “ She replied” My baby daddy cause he don’t like my new man friend “

    I don’t think blacks own the phrase. I thought it was just a cute saying like my children’s father. It just sounds cuter. Get over it trouble makers.
