I’m pretty sure the number of people that die each year from eating your genetically modified, hydrogenated oil laced poison disguised under a food veil is exponentially higher than the number killed by “petting a stray pit bull”.
Here’s the audio from the radio ad if you want to hear it.
Shame on you McDonald’s.
If my dogs (whom were both rescued as strays) had middle fingers they would most certainly salute you today.
Instead, Tucker and Guapo will give you looks of disapproval.
McDonald’s has now offered the following apology:
“In our effort to spread the word about our new Chicken McBites, one of our local markets ran an ad that inadvertently offended some of our customers. The ad was insensitive in its mention of pit bulls. We apologize. We are pulling the ad, and will review our creative screening process. It’s never our intent to offend anyone with how we communicate news about McDonald’s.”
“The ad was insensitive” doesn’t really cut it, but at least they are pulling the commercial.
Besides being completely ignorant of how hard we work to fight breed discrimination, they fail to correct the err of their words by offering a positive statement about pit bulls. I would love to see them take some steps in the right direction to rectify this situation by donating money to pit bull rescue and advocacy programs (but I’ll be sure not to hold my breath).
