IHOP has been griddled by customers who took umbrage with an anti-Hillary Clinton retweet that appeared on the pancake chain’s Twitter account over the weekend.
On Sunday, IHOP said its account had been hacked, but some customers thought the restaurant was just buttering them up.
In a statement to the media, IHOP said:
“At the core of the IHOP brand is a desire to bring people together and a commitment to creating a warm and welcoming environment for guests and fans everywhere, both in our restaurants and online. After a thorough investigation, we have confirmed that the IHOP Twitter account was hacked this morning. The retweeted post in question was immediately removed, and we have taken the necessary steps to ensure the security and integrity of our social media accounts. We appreciate our fans bringing this to our attention and recognizing that this is not normal content shared by IHOP.”
