The tweet did not survive for long.
Following in the footsteps of so many other companies, KFC apologized for the "offensive" tweet.
And they even reached out directly to people who didn't enjoy the tweet.
Judging from the majority of responses, though, people weren't so much offended by the joke as by the idea of a hot and spicy penis.
Others openly appreciated the dick chicken.
And one person implied that KFC could make a whole campaign with dick chicken.
No, that image of Colonel Sanders will never leave your brain.
