The card has an illustration of a black couple on the front, and according to Saunders, was the only Father's Day card she found at Target specifically depicting people of color.

Target is apologizing after customers complained about an offensive greeting card that was sold in its stores ahead of Father's Day.

The sand-colored card features what appears to be a couple of color and the phrase "baby daddy" in maroon lettering. "It's not sweet or nice".

Target pulled a Father's Day card after a public outcry accused the item of being insensitive to African-Americans.

American Greetings protested that the discussion wasn't taking the wording inside the card into account, saying the copy makes clear that the card was "created for, and addressed to, a loving husband".

"We want all guests to feel welcomed and respected when they shop at Target", the company said in a statement.
