Krispy Kreme have dangerous initials

Doughnut chain Krispy Kreme has apologised after bizarrely branding a half-term club KKK Wednesday - the same initials used by the US race hate group the Ku Klux Klan.

A billboard at the Hull branch advertised the outlet's half-term Krispy Kreme Klub 'KKK Wednesday'.

But after details appeared on social media the company faced complaints that the initials were the same as the racist group, the Ku Klux Klan.

Krispy Kreme created KKK Wednesday with the store in St Stephen's Shopping Centre, Hull as part of a calendar of activities designed to keep kids occupied during half term.

The club will allow youngsters a chance to decorate their own doughnuts and also other activities.

Krispy Kreme issued a formal apology and said: 'Krispy Kreme apologises unreservedly for the inappropriate name of a customer promotion at one of our stores.

'This promotion was never intended to cause offence. All material has been withdrawn and an internal investigation is currently under way.'

That's just plain silly - to link a combination of capital letters in the UK to something entirely unconnected in the US. Sometimes US "culture" is just TOO globalized!

Yes, children, it is a real thing.

These leftists seem to think that if someone evil uses something in the past, then that thing is forever evil and must never be used again. If that's the case, then they need to stop breathing. After all, Adolph Hitler, Jack the Ripper, and Ghengis Khan also used air.

What initials should the Krispy Kreme Klub use?
Surely Krispy Kreme should apologise anyway since their own initials are only one K away from racism!

The left needs to vilify as many symbols as possible to make themselves relevant. And it still is not working.
