Krispy Kreme Accidentally Promotes ‘KKK Wednesdays,’ For Kids [Details]

A Krispy Kreme location in Hull, UK, has sparked some outrage over their promotion of “KKK Wednesdays.”

But Krispy Kreme didn’t mean to promote the KKK, but instead it was initials for “Krispy Kreme Klub.” Krispy Kreme issued an apology for the mistake and pulled the ad (pictured below) from the Hull location’s Facebook page.

The representative also said the donut decorating activity for kids would proceed tomorrow, but under a different name.


The Guardian reports “KKK Wednesdays was to be part of the doughnut shop’s half-term activities – a series of planned events for children during a week-long break from school.”

Strange how “KKK Wednesdays” ever got past the executive’s desk.
