Crayola has been forced to apologize after its Facebook page was compromised earlier this week. The hack resulted in a handful of not-quite-family-friendly posts and some not-quite-happy families.
“Our sincere apologies to our Facebook community for the inappropriate and offensive posts you may have seen here today. Please be assured the official Crayola page has been restored. We can’t thank our fans enough for the feedback and support we received while working to resolve the issue … you truly are the best and we look forward to an exciting and creative 2015!” said Crayola in a Facebook post.
So, what were the inappropriate and offensive posts? Here’s a few:

Nothing that’s going to scar someone for life – but definitely not the kind of stuff a brand like Crayola wants to have on its page.
Guard your social media accounts, folks. This goes double for brands.
