Cards Against Humanity Target

Target apologized for an offensive set of playing cards and is yanking the product from its stores, Business Insider reported. But what people may not realize is that the game is meant to be offensive — to everyone.

The cards are the “Jew Pack” extension set to the popular game Cards Against Humanity. The game is like a purposefully offensive Apples To Apples, with players matching nouns and phrases to elaborate prompts. On the game’s website, its description reads, “Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people.”

The cards sparked outrage on social media with prompts like “Can’t you see, the Jews are behind everything — the banks, the media, even _______!” and “What’s so important right now that you can’t call your mother?”

Cards Against Humanity is a very popular party game that encourages people to show their ‘horrible’ inner selves. It is a very amusing game that has grown in popularity over the past 2-3 years since it was first released. The game is part trivia, part opinion based on the cards you are dealt and which deck you are using. Shop for cards against humanity online at Target.

Characteristically offensive answers to the prompts include: “Suddenly remembering the Holocaust happened”; “Chopping off a little bit of the penis”; “A lifetime of internalized guilt”; and “Bags of money.”

  1. Target has apologized for selling an offensive expansion pack to the popular party game “Cards Against Humanity,” and says it is in the process of removing the “Chosen People Pack” from.
  2. Cards Against Humanity's “Chosen People Pack” for the original game has some cards that seem to make light of the Holocaust. The almost always off-color cards recently went a bit too far for.

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