Crayola Apologizes for “Offensive Posts” After Facebook Hack

A social media nightmare at the company known for its crayons.

Pennsylvania-based art supply company Crayola is likely reviewing its social media security policies on Monday after a weekend hack left its official Facebook page flooded with status updates not exactly appropriate for the Sesame Street set.

By Sunday night, Crayola had deleted the posts and regained control of its Facebook page.

Some of the posts were decidedly NSFW. Below, a sampling of the more PG-13 offerings:

Crayola, which has its headquarters in North Forks, Northampton County, and a popular Crayola Experience attraction in Easton, issued a statement late on Sunday night:

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!
