DUMB BURGERS: Burger King Takes Down Racist Chopsticks Ad

I’m not at all PC — and often say reviling things to people. But this is just plain stupidity on behalf of the shitheads at Burger King. In what world did they think this would play right?

You’d think these mega-brands would learn by now — not to create racist or insensitive ads. Look at what Gucci did back during Black History month — played themselves by promoting an $890 black-knit women’s balaclava — armed with fucking black face.

    The more effort corporations, politicians, candidates place on cultural sensitivity and wokeness the more insensitive and Orwellian it becomes.

    Advertising, marketing, content production people have to come up with material. No ideas this week is not an option. In the effort to get something out, stupid things happen. Persons who know better aren’t always around.

    These past few years I have found myself offended by the fact that pumpkins are primarily orange.

    I think the Burger King ad is funny. And I try to be very PC insensitive.

      That should read I tried to be sensitive and PC. It’s no big deal. But people act like you’re taking away their freedom and liberty When asked to be sensitive

    I visited London years ago. We offended many there by eating hamburgers with our hands. The English were staring at us cuz they were using forks and knives to eat their American hamed burgers! True story.

    For the most part, east Asians don’t give a fuck …they got it going on and they don’t need special treatment ..although they would like it if we’d have college admissions based a wee bit more on merit.

      Pretty soon English will be band as a racist way of communication. People can’t be using and appropriating European languages now can’t they!
