Images of Kentucky police officers "mourning" the massive loss of Krispy Kreme doughnuts which were incinerated in a fiery blaze is now entertaining people on social media.
According to the New York Post, the driver of a truck transporting Kristy Kreme Doughnuts noticed smoke emanating from his vehicle on New Year's Eve. Safely pulling over, the driver called 911. While the driver was able to escape the truck, the doughnuts, unfortunately, were engulfed in flames along with the vehicle.
However, police who arrived on the scene near Man o' War Boulevard and Pink Pigeon Parkway captured the moment, according to WKYT. Images of mourning officers were then published by the Lexington Police Department. Showing two officers apparently in tears and another frowning at the burnt-out truck, they were captioned with "No words" and posted to the Lexington Police Department's official Twitter account.
Thanks to the stereotype of doughnut-loving police, people immediately started responding to the post.
A police officer from North Carolina joined in with the banter and offered his condolences on the matter.
"In this line of work, some things can't be unseen. My thoughts are with @lexkypolice officers at this time of tragedy."
