HULL, England -- A Krispy Kreme store in England offered membership in a Krispy Kreme Klub, and promoted it on Facebook with the phrase “KKK Wednesday."

You can imagine the response. People were outraged over the use of "KKK" -- as in "Ku Klux Klan"

When Facebook visitors educated the company about American history, Krispy Kreme took down the promotion and issued a public apology.
