Looks like someone’s brain was fried. Friday was a controversial day in Australia. KFC, Kentucky Fried Chicken Australia tweeted a photo that has created a quite a stir on social media. The Fast Food joint posted a photo of a Man and woman on a couch with the message: “WARNING: #NSFW. Something hot and spicy is coming soon…”
Apparently, KFC had used a unique ad to promote its latest product named hot and spicy chicken wings. In this process, KFC had tweeted another image where a woman appears to be grabbing something on the man’s lap, however, the part of the photo was blurred out. This has created imagination to everyone’s mind. Soon the company started trending for a very filthy reason.
Perhaps, the fast food giant apparently tried to say with some mischief with the”Not Safe for Work” hashtag. Immediately, twitter started trolling the marketing campaign, cited Sunshine Coast Daily.
“KFC, if you are experiencing ‘hot and spicy’ sensations in your genitals, I recommend you speak to a doctor,” some unknown user tweeted.
He added, “Wait, is KFC introducing jerk chicken? Was that the joke?” another user tweeted.
“Seriously guys, is your marketing team 12 years old?” Layla Bax tweeted.
Twitter user Anthony Lopez wrote: “Are you crazy?!”
According to Yahoo, the Fast food Joint deleted the tweet after an hour. However, users were fast enough to notice that and soon it started trending like wild fire on Twitter.
We are very sorry for our earlier tweet on H&S – we didn’t mean to offend and removed it when we realised we’d made an error in judgment.
