A Krispy Kreme branch in the UK apologizes for a promotion called 'KKK Wednesday'.

FOX News Radio's Bill Vitka reports:

A British branch of Krispy Kreme had been planning a promotion for Krispy Kreme Klub Wednesdays when folks noticed there was something wrong.

You couldn't miss it when it hit Facebook because Klub was spelled with a "K". And what was posted -- was touting "KKK Wednesdays".

It was supposed to be a series of events for children.

But yesterday , the Facebook post came down when people pointed out that KKK is also an abbreviation for Klu Klux Klan.

Krispy Kreme apologized. They said -- offense was never intended and an investigation is underway.
