The conservative group One Million Moms has a major beef with Burger King – for using the “d-word” in an ad for the plant-based Impossible Whopper.
In the ad campaign, customers wait in line for a fake “Impossible Restaurant,” which is actually a Burger King storefront for the company’s meatless patty.
“Damn, that’s good!” one satisfied customer says at one point in the commercial, which was first posted online in August.
“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 group said in a statement, calling the word a “profanity.”
“Burger King’s Impossible Whopper ad is irresponsible and tasteless,” the organization added. “It is extremely destructive and damaging to impressionable children viewing the commercial. We all know children repeat what they hear.”
