KFC Deletes Incredibly Dumb NSFW Twitter Fail

Its "Hot & Spicy" ad was a bit too hot and spicy.

What were you thinking, KFC?

The fast-food giant went below the belt in a stupidly saucy tweet Friday, then got chicken and took it down an hour later, Adweek reported.

Double entendres and obvious sexual imagery are usually a bad recipe for a family-friendly chain. But that didn't stop KFC in Australia from serving up this gem (as shared by a Twitter user): A guy looks suggestively at his crotch while a woman reaches over. The caption reads: "Something hot and spicy is coming soon."

Viewers, like this Twitter user, had buckets of fun clucking about KFC's marketing doofus-ness.

The brand quickly yanked its message and apologized. ...

"I applaud and salute u colonel," one Twitter user responded.
