#BoycottKFC trends online after ‘solidarity’ with Kashmir post by brand’s Pakistan account. KFC India apologises

Fast food restaurant chain KFC landed in trouble after the brand’s official Pakistan handle shared a post showing ‘solidarity’ with Kashmir. The post was shared on Facebook on February 5 on what they observe as Kashmir Day.

As soon as the post went viral, #BoycottKFC started trending on Twitter. The post was deleted soon after. However, netizens were quick to express their fury over it. Some people also shared the screenshot of the now-deleted image.

“You never left our thoughts and we hope that the coming years bring peace to you!” read the caption of the post.

“Kashmir Belongs To The Kashmiris,” read the text in the picture.

We honour and respect India, and remain steadfast in our commitment to serving all Indians with pride,” reads the statement released by the brand.
