KFC Thailand gets itself into hot water after posting this Facebook message urging people to hotfoot it back home during a tsunami scare and order a bucket of fried chicken. After being denounced by the online community, the company removed the message the next day, replacing it with a grovelling apology. Last monthís earthquakes brought to mind the Indian Ocean tsunami that claimed more than 200,000 lives in 2004.
