Whoops

I suppose it is too much to expect other cultures to know all of our nation's taboos, but you'd think other than Canada and perhaps Mexico, there'd be enough cross-cultural pollination with the UK for them to be a bit more aware.

The ill-advised national campaign was meant to be "a series of planned events for children during a week-long break from school," the Hull Daily Mail reported.

It didn't take long for people to point out that the "Krispy Kreme Klub" abbreviation evoked the Ku Klux Klan once the donut chain posted the event on its Facebook page. The post was later deleted.
Well, considering it misspelled three consecutive common words, it really wasn't educational either.
