One Million Moms slams Burger King ad for use of 'd-word'

Posted online

Activist conservative group One Million Moms is criticizing a Burger King commercial for the use of what it calls the "d-word."

In a Burger King ad promoting the plant-based Impossible Whopper, a man says, "Damn, that's good."

"One Million Moms finds this highly inappropriate. When responding to the taste test, he didn't have to curse. Or if, in fact, it was a real and unscripted interview in which the man was not an actor, then Burger King could have simply chosen to edit the profanity out of the commercial," One Million Moms officials said in a news release.

"Burger King's Impossible Whopper ad is irresponsible and tasteless. It is extremely destructive and damaging to impressionable children viewing the commercial. We all know children repeat what they hear."
