A tweet prompted organizers to stop selling offensive buttons comparing Hillary Clinton to KFC at a Republican convention.

According to the New York Daily News, the buttons said: "KFC ... Hillary Special ... 2 Fat Thighs, 2 Small Breasts ... Left Wing."

A vendor was selling the buttons at the Republican Convention in Anaheim over the weekend. The focus of the event was outreach to female voters.

San Francisco Chronicle reporter Carla Marinucci tweeted a photo of the buttons, which she said prompted event organizers to ask her where she saw them.

They were gone within the hour.

Marinucci said response to the buttons was "overwhelmingly negative."
