It would appear there was a twitter petition as well - mumsnet has several comments, but all links to the actual card appear to have been removed.

I would think that someone has added it for a joke or they have been hacked. They cannot have seriously thought it was a card they could sell.

We could do with some help from you.

It's now been replaced with the following:

 

 

"We apologise but this card in our range has been withdrawn. It is in no way reflective of our views and we apologise without reservation. We are investigating how this offensive card got through

our quality control procedures, which we will review and tighten as a result of this incident. This was a mistake and we deeply regret the upset that this has clearly caused. "

 

 

Has anyone taken a screenshot ??

Conniff, Mr P found a copy on the google cache - link in the post above - I tried to take a screen shot of it, but must be doing something wrong, because I couldn't :(

A quick search for the URL turns up a few screen shots, mainly from twitter feeds. The press has also picked up on the story, one example: The Independent.

Nothing like a couple talking sense to change ones mind. On Sky newspapers this morning it was said "what are we like, sitting in our houses waiting for something to offend us, something we can moan at. It's a joke, take it as one, I was brought up in a council house and it didn't offend me"

 

 

I can see his point, we are so quick to make everything racist, anti religious or sexist, whatever happened to our sense of humour.

I am offended by the sun rising every morning! And people moaning because they are offended. Get a grip on your empty life! It's a joke! I too grew up in a council estate and I found that card funny. It's in today's metro btw

There has been so much negativity about people on benefits recently this has just gone a step to far for me and others, some yes may see it as a joke but when you are subject to this stuff day in it no longer feels like a joke!

This was actually in the papers this morning.

Worth mentioning that the people that make these cards don't work for Clintons. Most of the time they aren't moderated correctly and go straight to print and out to the shelves.
