The restaurant chain Cracker Barrel has apologized after customers became upset after seeing what appeared to be a 'noose' hanging from the ceiling at one of its Connecticut locations. 

Twitter user Alfonso Robinson posted two images of the noose on Twitter on Monday saying: 'Someone at Cracker Barrel in East Windsor need to explain why there are nooses on the ceiling...#notagoodlook.'

The restaurant then clarified that noose wasn't intentional and it was actually wrapped cord that was attached to one of the location's vintage decorations, but still admitted it was 'completely unacceptable' that employees didn't notice the disturbing resemblance it had. 

Cracker Barrel reponded to Robinson's tweet saying: 'We’re sorry this happened.' 

'This antique electric soldering iron has an original wrapped cord that should not have been displayed. We have removed the item from our East Windsor store. Many thanks to the guest who notified us of this so that we ould correct our error,' the restaurant added.
