IHOP's Mother's Day tweet falls flat

Posted at 6:44 PM, May 13, 2019

The internet and social media have spoken — people are slamming an IHOP tweet celebrating Mother's Day.

IHOP tweeted an ultra sound image showing a tall stack of pancakes in someone's stomach, and wrote: "If you have pancakes in your tum tum, does that make you a pancake mum mum? Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there."

People have reacted with disgust, some even calling the social media marketing ploy creepy.

One person tweeted "I would like to personally fire whoever sent this out." A tweet that garnished over 1,300 likes.

Another tweet reads, "And @IHOP weighs into the most controversial space in American politics in the last 50 years."

Many people are calling for IHOP to delete the tweet, but that hasn't happened yet.
