Doughnut-maker Krispy Kreme has apologized after scheduling an event called “KKK Wednesday” at a store in the United Kingdom.

Krispy Kreme was due to host KKK Wednesday (KKK meaning “Krispy Kreme Klub”) on Feb. 18, at its store in Hull, which it had promoted via a post on its Facebook page.

However some of its 215,000 fans were quick to remind the company that as well as standing for Krispy Kreme Klub, the three Ks are more associated with racist hate group the Klu Klux Klan.
