During CNN’s preliminary coverage of the war between Ukraine and Russia, the network thought it was the perfect time to air a corny Applebee’s ad as they took a break from coverage. Even better, the ad ran side-by-side with a live stream of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv with the massive headline “Russia Invades Ukraine”.

"Amid Thursday morning coverage of the air attacks in Ukraine by Russia, CNN aired an Applebee’s ad — side-by-side with the headline “Russia Invades Ukraine” – and reactions were not favorable.

In response, Applebee’s suspended its ads on the network, telling Forbes.com it was “deeply concerned about the situation in Ukraine.”

"When we were made aware that our ad was placed in this manner, we immediately reached out to CNN to pause our advertising on their network,” Applebee’s said in the statement. “It never should have aired, and we are disappointed in the actions of the network.”
