Burger King Apologizes for “Women Belong in the Kitchen” tweet and ad


Burger King apologized for a tweet that said “women belong in the kitchen”. The tweet was meant to be a way to promote their new initiative to award culinary scholarships to women. The campaign was supposed to be in honor of International Women’s day. They doubled down for a long time, and refused to take the tweet down, but ended up deleting it after a day of bad PR.
