The fried-chicken chain said that it uses a bot linked to national observances to create notifications for its mobile app.

The KFC Chickenbot strikes again!

And this is why you don't use bots to manage social media.

Made even worse due to it being a lunchtime special.
"Kristalltag" wouldn't have helped much, but still.

Merry Kristallnacht!

In the other thread I said they'd end up apologizing for their apology. They don't seem to get that blaming it on software just isn't going to cut it.

"We understand and respect the gravity gravy and history of this day, and remain committed to equity, inclusion and belonging for all," KFC said in a statement.

It's hard to enjoy a bucket of chicken you've just seen forcibly marched into the pressure cooker chamber.

"We deeply regret and apologize for what happened. The events of Kristallnacht are tragic, and should be remembered in solemnity. KFC uses a bot to post based on calendar holidays. While no person at KFC wrote that tweet, it does not excuse the lack of human oversight for what we put out to the world. At the end of the day it is still our failure, and we are taking steps to address it."

Would have been so much better.

People who design a lot of plate glass windows into their franchise stores should probably understand what the Kristall being referred to is made of.    Maybe they should stock up on some brooms and plywood in case they rekindle a fad.  Clueless and incurious may get you elected president, but it's no way to run a business.

Nirbo: How do they stack up against Chick-fil-a now?


I used to like KFC food.
About 30 years ago.

I tried it last month, and while the mashed potato's and gravy and biscuits were the same, the chicken was old, microwaved, and limp.

Just like my husband.

No, I don't mean I microwa... you know what, never mind.  I'd better delete this before I accidentally hit 'add commen

The one by me is the same as it ever was. When it was cheaper and I was single I could eat a cold bucket all week.  But now there's a Korean spot called Bonchon that's way better fast food chicken.

They set up a bot using some online calendar of holidays and observances and never considered that some of the might not be appropriate to use.

I don't quite agree.

The use of the bot to generate messages and to send them out is fine, but you need a human check somewhere in the line.

I love it when the corpos accidentally remind you who they really are like that.

Accidental recognition of past hate by a separate entity or purposeful current hate directly from the chicken purveyor? Tough call.
