Buffalo Wild Wings apologized late Friday after its Twitter account posted crude and racist comments, which the company says was a result of a malicious hack.
The string of tweets began after 7:30 p.m. and went unchecked for about 20 minutes, according to NBC Chicago 5.
"Buffalo Wild Wings’ Twitter account was hacked," the Minneapolis-based company told USA TODAY in a statement.
BWW continued with "we’re sorry that our fans had to see those awful posts, which obviously did not come from us. We are in touch with our Twitter representatives and will pursue the appropriate action against the individuals involved."
