There's a Tsunami Coming; Order Some KFC Now!

The KFC drive thru has long been a popular destination for those looking to pick up a quick meal to eat in a hurry or when emergency hunger hits.  

But how about during a real emergency?

KFC has apologized for a Facebook message that urged people to rush home during Wednesday's tsunami scare in Thailand and order a bucket of chicken.

As people were being urged to evacuate beach areas, the company posted: "Let's hurry home and follow the earthquake news. And don't forget to order your favourite KFC menu."

It prompted hundreds of angry comments on Thai websites denouncing the company as insensitive, selfish and greedy.

By today the message was removed and replaced by one that asked for forgiveness.

If anyone is heading to my local KFC, I'll have some "extra crispy."
