Burger King sells ‘Proud Whopper’ in San Francisco (facepalm material)
Associated Press ^ | Jul 1, 2014 7:44 PM EDT | Candice Choi

Burger King is celebrating gay pride with a message on its Whopper wrappers.

The fast-food chain says it will post a video online Wednesday that shows scenes from a San Francisco location where it sold a “Proud Whopper.” Customers were not told what is in the burger, which comes wrapped in rainbow paper. Once opened up, a message inside the wrapper states, “We are all the same inside.”

The idea is that the Proud Whopper is no different from the regular Whopper, despite its colorful packaging.

The marketing effort is part of Burger King’s push to connect with customers in a more meaningful way, particularly with the younger individuals fast-food chains are known for courting. As part of that push, Burger King recently said it was retiring its “Have It Your Way” slogan in favor of the more personal “Be Your Way” (Ad Age pointed out the phrase was “grammatically challenged”). …

Not that Burger King was on my favorites list to begin with, but for sure, they are not now. I guess the “King” is really a queen.

Eww. That just sounds gross. The last thing I’d want to think about while having a burger in a fast-food joint is the imagery of a bunch of creepy damned homos. Just reeks of filth and disease.

Burger King can take its faggot-burger and shove it where the sun doesn’t shine (which, would be ironically appropriate, come to think of it).

Everything is queer these days. It’s one thing to serve people, preferably without having to know their sexual perversions, but it’s quite another to celebrate customer perversions. No more Burger King for my family.

As well, have already initiated boycott in my congregation. Will extend out wards as far as possible. You see, “G-d gave NOACH the rainbow sign, no more water, FIRE next time!” Words of a classic Negro Spiritual, more true today than ever. Sexually confused people have no sense, since the Rainbow is G-d’s promise that He will judge Torahlessness with fire and brimstone. Every single human on the face of the Earth has the ability to do Teshuvah (repent) and find the reason why they are here, at this moment in time.

“We are all the same inside” is that really what it says?? Oh, that is funny... I’m trying not to make an anal sex joke but... sure, we’re all the same inside, yeah... that part of the human body is pretty much the same for everyone. That’s a great message for mealtime! LOL!

It used to be that once or twice a year when I was on the road and wanted a burger, it was Burger King or nothing. Now, it looks like it will be nothing.

Me either. Used to eat there, years ago. But there’s something creepy about BK that makes me go to elsewhere.
This just confirms it.

I know it is impossible to get through a day of media exposure without experiencing a constant barrage of faggotry, but to get it when you are trying to order a freaking hamburger?

The King is dead.
