Conservative group One Million Moms slams Burger King for using ‘d-word’

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.”

A petition launched by the group to protest Burger King until it removes the offending ad has just over 9,000 signatures – and One Million Moms had about 100,000 likes on Facebook as of early Monday.

Burger King did not immediately respond to a message for comment.

One Million Moms also has targeted groups that feature LGBT people or relationships in a positive light, according to CNN.

In 2012, it urged JCPenney to remove Ellen DeGeneres as its spokeswoman because she is gay, but the company stood behind the comedian.

Last month, One Million Moms successfully lobbied to have the Hallmark Channel remove a Zola ad featuring a lesbian couple at the altar on their wedding day. Hallmark faced a backlash for removing the ad and later reversed itself, saying it made the “wrong decision.”

One Million Moms is a division of the American Family Association, the nonprofit evangelical Christian group that has been designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group for “the propagation of known falsehoods.”

And despite its name, the right-wing group has nowhere near a million members.

During the JCPenney debacle, the Miami Herald reported that the group had only about 44,000 followers on Facebook. The number has since risen to only about 98,000.

Even One Million Moms admits that its name is a bit of wishful thinking. On its website, it says it is “searching for one million moms who are willing to join the fight for our children.”

In some smaller communities here, parents leave their children outside the supermarket in their pushchairs. :fag:Americans would be mortified.
