Restaurant chain Buffalo Wild Wings says its Twitter account was hacked and crude comments were briefly posted, but later deleted.
A spokeswoman for the Minneapolis-based company says Buffalo Wild Wings is in touch with Twitter and "will pursue the appropriate action against the individuals involved."
The company apologized on its Twitter account, saying the posts "obviously did not come from us."
The tweets included racist, sexually vulgar messages about individuals, even making outlandish accusations toward Wendy's that had no merit.
Known for its sports bar fare such as chicken wings, Buffalo Wild Wings was purchased in a deal finalized earlier this year by Roark Capital Group, which owns Arby's restaurant chain.
