Target Apologizes, Removes Card Game that References 'Torturing Jews'

U.S. mega-retailer Target has apologized and pulled a Cards Against Humanity game pack off its shelves after complaints that the set is anti-Semitic.

The options include one card reading: "The part of Anne Frank's diary where she talks about her vagina".

Target is now in the process of getting the "Chosen People Pack" out of stores; no doubt it is destined to become a major collector's item.

Lieber also included a link to the cards on Walmart.com, but it has since been pulled from the site.

The game most recently sparked outrage after Twitter user @mlonpolitics posted photos of the pack online, and called out superstore Target for selling it.


If anything, it's been more of a miracle that Cards Against Humanity has achieved such big success and continuous expansion without more widespread backlash, over the years.

There are multiple versions of the game, but it is the Jewish-themed version that has caused complaints.

Listed online as the "Jew Pack," a description of the game reads: "Fun fact: 100% of the Cards Against Humanity writers are Jewish".

On Twitter Target said, "We apologize for any disappointment as it is never our intention to offend our guests with the products we carry".

However, several twitter users questioned Target's move as the whole point of the game is to offend and accused them of silencing free speech. "I don't find anti-Semitic jokes humorous 2. for some reason, this is their only set targeting a religion/ethical group".
