Burger King Apologizes For “Pride Whopper”
Another reason for corporations to just stay the fuck out of Pride month. Two tops? Two bottoms? It didn’t really make sense, and now Burger King has been forced to apologize. Via AdAge:
The “Pride Whopper” refers to a version of Burger King’s signature burger with a curious twist: each order is served with either two sesame-coated top buns or two flat-bottom buns on either side. A Burger King spokesperson told Ad Age in an email that the dish is meant to “highlight equal rights and equal love—through a play on the traditional Whopper build—featuring two identical buns on the two options of the sandwich.”
I’d rather not have my sexual identity compared to a piece of disgusting white bread, thank you.
