IHOP is turning some stomachs after the breakfast chain sent out a sexually charged tweet Sunday suggesting that women’s breasts are like pancakes.
“Flat but has a GREAT personality,” the tweet’s caption said with a glamour shot of pancakes.
The tweet, part of an campaign to draw in younger followers with its edgy tweet, went out to its 242,000 followers and was deleted after it sparked anger:

IHOP was quick to apologize for the gaffe.
Earlier today we tweeted something dumb and immature that does not reflect what IHOP stands for. We're sorry.

But others defended IHOP, saying people were overreacting.

I'm sorry but if this tweet from ihop offends you, that's just pathetic. You need to re-evaluate. pic.twitter.com/SH1JuzhRHn

Tell us what you think? Did IHOP go too far?
