According to this November 10, 2022 article titled “KFC apologises for Kristallnacht chicken and cheese promotion” in The Guardian (U.K.) newspaper:
“KFC has apologised for a push notification sent out via its app inviting German customers to celebrate the anniversary of the Nazi Kristallnacht pogrom against Jews by ordering fried chicken and cheese.”
The message reportedly said:
“Commemorate Kristallnacht – treat yourself to more soft cheese and crispy chicken. Now at KFCheese!”
The article itself seems to not cite any sources other than, “The tabloid Bild…” which seems to reference this article in said tabloid which then links to this post on Twitter that makes reference to the supposed original message and apology; pictured below. But there are no other sources it seems.
And a Google search seems to only return results from other publications citing The Guardian article.
Did KFC actually send out a message to customers promoting fast food discounts on Kristallnacht in Germany? Are there any other sources that can confirm this?
