Potato Corner apologises for 'Toto' Facebook post
POTATO Corner Thailand Co has apologised for a "careless" Facebook post about its Toto mascot that coincided with the police arrest of "Toto", a political activist.
The fast food chain issued a statement late Saturday apologising for the fries promotion posted on its Facebook account earlier that day..
"Urgent news!!! Potato Corner, the first powder-mixed fries in Thailand, is arrested for being "too delicious," the ad read. "Toto (assumed name) is arrested at a Potato Corner branch on the sixth floor of CentralWorld while eating three cups of power-mixed french fries," the ad said.
The ad was posted around the same time as the arrest of "Toto", Piyarat Chonthep, a leading member of the We Volunteer (WeVo) guard group, along with other activists, at the Major Ratchayothin shopping complex.
