Krispy Kreme apologized recently for one of their UK store’s bold approach toward marketing. The store advertised a promotion for customers called KKK Wednesday, which was supposed to be held this week.
And before you go judging the local owner realize that in this case KKK, was intended to stand for “Krispy Kreme Klub,” it has nothing to do with that other group who terrorized minorities for decades by murdering them and burning down their shit. Though, the KKK (innocent donut one) probably would have slowly morphed into the evil one over time. There’s just something about white people sitting around enjoying donuts and coffee that somehow breeds racism. (See: Cops) How long will it be until scientists make the racist trans-fat/caffeine connection?
