The KFC restaurant chain has apologized for a promotional mailing offer to celebrate the anniversary of Kristallnacht with chicken and cheese. This is reported by the BBC.

“It's Kristallnacht memorial day! Indulge in more tender cheese on crispy chicken. Now in KFCheese!”, wrote in the KFC app.

An hour later app users received another message in which the network of establishments apologizes for the promotional mailing. The company referred to “errors in the system” and promised that they would try to avoid such situations in the future.

“We are very sorry, we will immediately check our internal processes so that this does not happen again. Please excuse this mistake,” wrote KFC.

Many public figures and politicians reacted to the incident. Thus, the director of public relations of the Council of Deputies of British Jews condemned the restaurant chain, calling the content of their mailing list “absolutely disgusting.”

In German KFC, they claim that a bot that composes and distributes advertising texts is to blame for the misunderstanding. The company claims that national holiday greetings are issued automatically in the application.

KFC Germany representatives called the content of their mailing list “insensitive and inappropriate”, and also stated that the application will be suspended until a full system check is completed.< /p>

“We understand and respect the gravity and history of this day and remain committed to the principles of justice, inclusion and belonging for all,” KFC says.

The authors of the publication note that “Crystal night” for many people marks the beginning of the Holocaust. In 1938, mass pogroms of Jews took place in Germany, as a result of which more than 90 people were killed. The events of those times were called “Crystal Night” or “Night of Broken Glass” because after the Nazi attacks, the streets of cities were strewn with glass fragments.

More Focus wrote that the President of Iran Ibrahim Raisi questioned the reality and scope of the Holocaust. According to the Iranian leader, historians have yet to evaluate those events.
