Burger King Complaint - "Whopper Virgins" Advertisement
I find the recent televised Burger King advertisement " Whopper virgins" completely offensive and would like support in having the ad removed from the air. My six year old son promptly asked me what a " virgin " was when the ad showed up on TV a few weeks ago. I had to shut off the television and think about how I was going to explain this particularly sensitive and delicate subject to someone with such a young mind. Responsible parents are often faced with similar tasks in guiding our children through the vast maze of information available in the media. I find it unnecessary that a successful and easily identifiable company such as Burger King would resort to an advertising campaign using sexual overtones to promote a product. I'm sure that many other caring parents are also offended by this advertisement and are expressing similar views.
My family will boycott the products of this company until the ad is removed from the air.
