Activist conservative group One Million Moms is taking aim at Burger King for using what it calls the "d-word" in a commercial promoting the non-meat Impossible Whopper https://t.co/RVeqtjXUpU— CNN (@CNN) January 12, 2020
According to One Million Moms (allegedly), BK's Impossible Whopper is "a burger made from plants instead of beef."
The "highly inappropriate" ad shows a male taste tester "completely shocked that the burger is not beef, so he uses the d-word to describe how he feels about himself for being deceived by the taste of the burger."
That customer didn't have to curse! "The language in the commercial is offensive, and it's sad that this once family restaurant has made yet another deliberate decision to produce a controversial advertisement instead of a wholesome one."
The Southern Poverty Law Center-listed hate group finds the ad irresponsible and tasteless. "It is extremely destructive and damaging to impressionable children viewing the commercial. We all know children repeat what they hear."

Almost 10,000 highly offended moms have signed the online "Take Action" petition, demanding BK to "cancel this Impossible Whopper commercial or, at the very least, edit out the cuss word immediately."
