A branch of the donut and hooded vigilante justice emporium Krispy Kreme in the UK has canceled in upcoming promotion after they realized that it may not have been advertising the type of message they’d intended.

The promotion was for Krispy Kreme Klub Wednesdays, part of a week long series of events aimed at children who were on break from school. Someone didn’t put much thought into that acronym, however.
Once the mistake was brought to light, the franchise quickly apologized.
“Krispy Kreme apologises unreservedly for the inappropriate name of a customer promotion at one of our stores,” a spokeswoman for Krispy Kreme told the Guardian.
“This promotion was never intended to cause offence. All material has been withdrawn and an internal investigation is currently underway.”
Obviously it was a mistake, but sort of hilarious in its own way. One wonders how a Dunkin Donuts National Front Fridays promotions would be received here in the States.
