Burger King Creates Feminist Ad Campaign to End 'Pink Tax'
...And in other silly news this weekend. Burger King, home of the
mayonnaise sandwich Whopper and their signature cardboard chicken sandwich, has a new ad campaign. You might think it a clever campaign featuring the King that will bring the chuckles. Nope.
No laughs. No cleverness. Just a whole lot of feminism:
we all pay the price when women are charged more. that’s why we dropped the price of chicken fries to $1.69 for eve… https://t.co/hQ9QE4Wvf6— Burger King (@Burger King)1532613566.0
Back in January, the fast-food chain produced a video opposing the rollback of net neutrality rules, and now they’re getting political again with a video supporting Rep. Jackie Speier’s Pink Tax Repeal Act.
“Women get hit with a double whammy: They make less for doing the same work and they pay more for the same product or service because it’s for women,” Rep. Speier said in a press release on “Equal Pay Day” back in April. “Whether it’s a pink teddy bear, deodorant from the same manufacturer, or a white laundered shirt, it’s time to say enough! Discrimination is illegal.”
Yeah, I'll have a Whopper with cheese, hold the grandstanding leftist hogwash.
One thing I'm still trying to figure out. The gender equality experts at BK say the men's and women's razors are the exact same product. If this is true, there's nothing stopping those lasses from picking up the men's version and saving a couple of bucks. Last time I checked, there's no law requiring females to buy the female-marketed products.
According to Burger King, you get to "have it your way." Unless, of course, you wish to partake of deep-fried Franken-foods free of feminist diatribes. I wonder what Burger King's next brain-fart of a promotion will be. Mayhaps replacing the King mascot with Ashley Judd in a pussy hat.
Yet another cringeworthy fail from the left. You'd think Burger King would have learned their lesson after their net neutrality dud and just given up. After all, there's many other things they could be doing. Like creating food that's edible.
The only thing they're accomplishing here is giving us more things to mock. For which we thank them.
Speaking of feminism:
