Frozen yogurt shop sends offensive email blast
16 Handles, a frozen yogurt franchise, sent an email blast Wednesday night that upset many of their customers.
The mail said "Grab 'em by the fro-yo" -- a play on Donald Trump's recently-leaked lewd comments about women.
To make matters more politically charged, the subject of the email said "We're Making Fro-Yo Great Again" with American flag emoji.
Social media users have fired back.
The 16 Handles team sent a follow-up apology email around 9 p.m. the same day.
The text said:
"We messed up, and we're sorry. The 16 Handles team deeply regrets any unintended harm our recent e-blast has caused. We do not endorse any presidential candidates, nor their statements or actions. In an attempt tofacetiously reference pop culture, we made a callous mistake. We apologize for the offense we have caused and we would like to remind our customers that we oppose all forms of sexual abuse and harassment."
