UNDATED (CNN) -- KitchenAid is apologizing for a political tweet sent from it's official account during the presidential debate.
The tweet has been removed but at least a dozen retweets of the post showed it read "Obamas gma even knew it was going 2 b bad! 'She died 3 days b4 he became president.'"
The tweet was in reference to this moment in the debate where the president talked about the importance of programs like Medicare and Social Security. He said, "You know, my grandmother, some of you know, helped to raise me. My grandfather died a while back. My grandmother died three days before I was elected president. And she was fiercely independent. She worked her way up, only had a high school education, started as a secretary, ended up being the vice president of a local bank. And she ended up living alone by choice and the reason she could be independent was because of Social Security and Medicare,"
The home appliance brand apologized in a later post from the same Twitter account.
The company did not explain how the tweet ended up there.
