"We appreciate the feedback and apologize", the Minneapolis-based company wrote to its shoppers.

Other commenters wondered what message Target intends to send simply by stocking the card. "It's a term used to describe a deadbeat or absent parent", she wrote.

"By posting my comment, I hoped to shed some light on why I was upset about it". Said Target, "It's never our intention to offend our guests with the merchandise we provide".

"I am glad Target is showing they actually listen to their consumers and want to make it right", she said.
