Buffalo Wild Wings apologizes for racist comments posted on Twitter

The Buffalo Wild Wings Twitter account was compromised Friday evening, leading to a series of tweets posted from the account spouting racist and sexually explicit content. "We apologize for the terrible posts, which obviously did not come from us", the restaurant said on Twitter.

The tweets were posted on Friday on the company's verified account, which has more than 700,000 followers.

Another post attacked film producer and writer Tariq Nasheed with a racial slur.

Even though the tweets was deleted, Twitter was buzzing with conversations about the hack.

At the time, Allison Closs said she held out hope that her stunt would warrant perhaps a meeting with DeVito, or even a tweet . Allison Closs poses with a cardboard cutout of Danny DeVito that she took to her school's prom.


The hacker made some particular British references, using the slang word "nonce" which refers to pedophiles, and bringing up the case of Madeleine McCann, a girl who has been missing in the United Kingdom since 2007.

The company later issued a statement regarding the hack. It's also uncertain if Buffalo Wild Wings employed two-factor authentication, a common security feature and best practice for locking down Twitter accounts.

Twitter has since restored the account and Buffalo Wild Wings is back in control of the feed.

Some of its restaurants have been created to give its clients, who the company refers to as "fans", the experience or impression of actually being in a sports stadium. They say they plan pursuing action, however.
