KFC Forced To Pull Down New Ad After Twitter Uproar

KFC Blunder

What seemed like a just another new ad for fried chicken which was initially meant to be funny has caused a huge uproar among KFC fans. 

The ad in question: 

The ad released by the fast food chain in Australia, shows a man smiling down at his crotch as a woman reached towards the censored area just below his waist. 

The reactions on twitter were almost instantaneous. Let’s take a look at some of then below.

Within hours of releasing the ad, KFC Australia deleted the ad and issued an apology. 

“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,” the company tweeted.

In a statement to News.com.au, the company further explained, “this was a genuine tweet to launch KFC’s new Hot & Spicy chicken products next week. It was not intended to offend and we’ve removed the image.”
