"All publicity is good publicity," right? Perhaps not. UK bakery Greggs suffered a PR nightmare this morning, as The Drum reports, after its primary Google search image, which is linked to the Wikipedia company description, was replaced with an expletive-ridden parody logo. The message in the image, which Greggs has appealed to Google to change, claimed the bakery has been “providing shit to scum for over 70 years”.
It is unclear whether the image swap was a deliberate action against Greggs or a one-in-a-million fluke but the error remains live as this story is published.
The company said: “We are aware of the abusive logo and have made a formal complaint to Google and asked them to rectify this as a matter of urgency.”
