It could, so I would advise against doing so.

Adding an authorized user to your credit card that has just filed bankrupcty will NOT affect your credit scores. I just would not suggest giving them a card to use, because it may cause hardship in the future if they charge it up and don't pay. But adding them as an authorized user to help build their credit up will not cause you any harm. Do some reading about this if you don't believe me.
