This week, KFC issued an apology for advising German customers to “treat yourself” on Kristallnacht in a mobile app alert.
In November 1938, Nazis carried out pogroms against Jews in Germany and Austria known as “Kristallnacht,” or “the night of broken glass.” Some people view it as the start of the Holocaust.

It was stated that the Yum Brands chain sent a message on Wednesday that read, “It’s Kristallnacht Memorial Day! Give yourself a treat by adding more soft cheese to your fried chicken. At KFCheese now!
The notification, according to KFC, had “an clearly unintended, offensive, and unacceptable message.”
KFC issued a statement saying, “We recognise and appreciate the importance and history of this day, and we are committed to equity, inclusion, and belonging for everyone.”

The fast food company that specialises in fried chicken claimed to deploy a bot that generates messages for its mobile app based on national holidays. KFC said that improper adherence to the chain’s internal review procedure led to the customer notice being sent out. In order to prevent a repeat of the error, it noted that app communications have been suspended.

Concerns regarding an increase in anti-Semitic remarks from NBA star Kyrie Irving and rapper Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, have increased. Adidas and the rapper were cut off as a result of Ye’s remarks, and Gap removed Yeezy clothing from its stores. According to Phil Knight, a co-founder of Nike, Nike’s partnership with Irving is probably over.
