Buffalo Wild Wings was left red-faced on Friday when its Twitter account was broken into and used to post some extremely offensive tweets.

The Minneapolis-based restaurant chain apologized after regaining access to its account, saying: "Well, we were hacked. And it wasn’t funny."

We're not going to repeat some of the tweets that went out – they really were that bad. They've since been deleted but screenshots were taken (obviously) and if you really must see them you can here.

They included n-word references, accusations that B-Dubs' rival Wendy's is a pedophile, and a suggestion that a certain bodily fluid from a man named Tommy is responsible for the company's "secret recipe."

It also contains a reference to Madeleine McCann, a British child who famously disappeared while on vacation in Portugal more than a decade ago and who hasn't been seen since.

One of the racist tweets was directed at media personality Tariq Nasheed, who said he received threats as a result.

The hacker started posting the tweets around 6:30 p.m. and managed to fire off six of the tweets to the company's 700,000 followers before either stopping or losing control.

B-Dubs told Gizmodo that it is in touch with its Twitter representatives "and will pursue the appropriate action against the individuals involved."
