Burger King has emailed thousands or millions of customers with a blank order email receipt. Blank emails began popping up around 12:15 a.m. ET, leaving Burger King customers confused as to whether the company had been hacked by a hungry hacker trying a midnight feast, or if the emails were just A massive mistake.
Twitter users were quick to turn to the social network in confusion about the blank emails, some even receiving two emails from Burger King in an apparent double error. The order emails are completely blank, sent by Burger King’s main promotional marketing email address.
There is no clear indication that Burger King has been hacked, and we have reached out to the company to explain the spam emails in the middle of the night. Many people who receive the emails don’t even remember creating a Burger King account, so it could simply be that a system change went wrong and sent blank orders to Burger King’s entire marketing database.
Either way, as soon as we receive a response from the house of massive emails, we will update you accordingly.
