Company's Christmas Baking Competition Gets Off On The Wrong Foot After Instagram Hashtag Fail

Company's Christmas Baking Competition Gets Off On The Wrong Foot After Instagram Hashtag Fail

British baking company Warburtons decided to get into the Christmas spirit with a little competition on social media. They challenged fans to make an post photos of their best crumpets. All you had to do was hashtag your work with #Crumpet Creations.

They even had British star Tom Fletcher help them roll out the promotion:

So, the only problem with their innovative campaign for crumpets was that someone already used #CrumpetCreations. It's popular with Furries, especially a particular costume maker named Crumpet.

Furries, if you didn't know, are people who dress up as animals, generally in cartoon mascot looking costumes. For some it's a part of a sexual fetish, though not for all. Here's a very respectful conversation about it:

It's good to be respectful of what consensual adults decide to do on their off hours. But that doesn't mean there isn't a bit of a war happening over this hashtag. Furries are a bit annoyed that they can't check in with it as normal to see the cool new Furry creations, and are instead being inundated with actual photos of crumpets.

*grumpily judges you* #furry #furries #fursuit #Crumpetcreations

A spokesperson has told The Independent that Warburton's has changed their hashtag to #warburtonschristmascrumpets. But before that takes over, enjoy #CrumpetCreations, which really offers something for everyone:

Fuzzies! And yet sisters! <3 #furries #crumpetcreations

Honestly, the word crumpet does sound kind of sexual.
