Michiana company stirs up controversy over tweet during debate

The presidential debate was the most tweeted political event ever. The 10.3 million tweets were made in just over 90 minutes.

And many were personal political opinions.

One Tweet from a Michiana-based company raised a few eyebrows.

KitchenAid apologized for a political tweet from its official account during the debate.

Several retweets of the post showed a joke made in poor taste about the president's grandmother.

It was in reference to President Obama's comments on the importance of programs like Medicare and Social Security.

That tweet has since been removed.

The home appliance brand apologized in a later post from the same Twitter account.

The company did not explain how the Tweet ended up on it
