Seriously Donald Trump a genius? gag reflex seriously tested - smarter than Hillary - he had scum bag smarts and sneaky con man deceptiveness, but that is about it.

Krispy Kreme’s ‘KKK Wednesdays’ promotion backfires, obviously

welL. apparently not obvious in the UK

Note to marketers: Google hate groups before committing to campaign
A United Kingdom branch of Krispy Kreme has officially apologized after advertising their short-lived “KKK [Krispy Kreme Klub] Wednesdays” promotion for their Hull location. Apparently, people outside the U.S. — including the representatives from Krispy Kreme’s British headquarters who approved the promotion — are unfamiliar with the Ku Klux Klan, a white supremacist organization known for grotesque violence primarily against black people.

“Krispy Kreme apologizes unreservedly for the inappropriate name of a customer promotion at one of our stores,” said a Krispy Kreme spokesperson in a statement. “The promotion was never intended to cause offense. All material has been withdrawn and an internal investigation is currently underway.”
....
The promotion has scheduled events including “Colouring Tuesday” and “Face Painting Thursday.”


one of the commentators wanted to know if that face painting was black or white face?
