Target is the latest brand to find themselves in a social media mess after customers called them out for selling racially insensitive Father's Day cards. "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.
