IHOP Makes A Boob Joke That Falls, Um, Flat

Sometimes it feels like the Internet is actually¬†looking¬†for things to get offended about.¬†Sensitive souls’ latest complaint is aimed at IHOP for a tweet from Sunday night that featured a pic of some pancakes and a caption that read, “Flat but has a GREAT personality.”

Boobs. Get it?

ihop twitter boob joke flat great personality

As a female (and a card carrying member of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee), I don’t personally find this offensive besides that they thought this pretty lame dad joke was funny. Twitter users, however, were not pleased in the least and shared their reactions to the sexist joke that objectifies women’s bodies.

This is terrible, delete your account https://t.co/QGxxEG4gpb

Does IHOP stand for "Irresponsible Harmer of People??" I am disgusted. Your tweet literally made me vomit. https://t.co/lqpdSub0SZ

.@IHOP I like my breakfast fertile, submissive to man's God-given authority, lush, and available 24 hours per day. Please advise.

Nonetheless, IHOP said they were sorry so now we can kiss, make up, and eat some short stacks.

Earlier today we tweeted something dumb and immature that does not reflect what IHOP stands for. We're sorry.
