If you happen to follow Crayola on Facebook, you were in for a real treat Monday morning.
The crayon company’s Facebook page was hacked early Monday, resulting in the publication of such clickbait-y, decidedly non-child-friendly posts as “Reasons Why Girls Don’t Give Blowjobs” and “Types of B00bs.”
According to AdWeek, Crayola’s Facebook page was hacked late Sunday night. While none of the posts that showed up were outright pornographic, they were, shall we say, a bit off-color:
Almost immediately, Crayola’s social media team went into damage control mode:
We're aware of the situation on our official FB page, which was hacked today, and making every effort to stop the unauthorized posts.— Crayola (@Crayola) January 11, 2015
We don't condone the inappropriate & offensive content being posted to the fraudulent Crayola FB page & sincerely apologize to our fans.— Crayola (@Crayola) January 12, 2015
Crayola also issued a contrite statement on its Facebook page, though not all of its fans disapproved of the change:
Phew, everything’s back to normal. That said, parents, don’t be surprised on the next arts and crafts day if your kids start bringing home drawings of “pointers” and “bee stings.”
