Lucy Dunn took to Twitter to complain and to ask Clintons, which has stores across Sussex, to remove the card, which shows a bear pulling its legs towards its head.

The caption of the card reads: “After a few birthday drinks... she was up for pretty much ANYTHING!”

A disgusted Ms Dunn tweeted: “Happy birthday to any woman who “deigns” to have a drink on their birthday. Found this in my local card shop @ClintonsTweet”

Clintons, which has branches across the UK, quickly sent a tweet back to Ms Dunn apologising for any offence caused.

The retailer also confirmed via Twitter: “We have received confirmation from our buying team, that all stores will remove this card from sale tomorrow.”

The controversial card split opinion among Twitter users with some describing it as “vile”, while others argued that the card was “absolutely fine”.
