Cinnabon apologizes for ‘best buns’ Carrie Fisher tweet

(KRON) — Cinnabon is apologizing for posting a tribute to the late Carrie Fisher.

cinnabon1It reads: “RIP Carrie Fisher, you’ll always have the best buns in the galaxy.” It was accompanied by a portrait of the actress made out of cinnamon, with a cinnamon bun acting as the hair Fisher’s character Princess Leia wore in the first “Star Wars” film.

Many people took to Twitter saying the message was seen as using a death to promote their product.

The baked goods company apologized saying: “Our deleted tweet was genuinely meant as a tribute, but we shouldn’t have posted it. We are truly sorry.”

However, others are arguing that Fisher would have enjoyed the humor.
