Burger King Ad Offends Hindus
Another week, another Burger King advertising scandal. A Spanish advertising company slapped together a series of posters featuring the Hindu goddess Lakshmi hovering over various BK foods with a slogan that translates to "This snack is sacred."
"We are apologizing because it wasn't our intent to offend anyone," said spokeswoman Denise T. Wilson. "Burger King Corporation values and respects all of its guests as well as the communities we serve. This in-store advertisement was running to support only local promotion for three restaurants in Spain and was not intended to offend anyone."
