IHOP Gets Flak For Tweets Comparing Pancakes To Breasts

LOS ANGELES ( — Someone's on IHOP's marketing team probably got a stern talking to after posting suggestive tweets likening pancakes to breasts.

One photo of a stack of pancakes with butter on top was captioned with: "flat but has a GREAT personality."

Another one tweet blasted as offensive said: "The butter face we all know and love."

The tweets were sent to @IHOP's 243,000 followers and deleted after the backlash broke out.

Many people on Twitter were not amused. Even some people who found them funny said they realized the jokes were still sexist.

But there were some who thought the tweets were funny and said the critics were being too sensitive about the whole thing.

Nonetheless, IHOP removed the tweets and apologized.
