Kentucky Fried Chicken has decided to use violence to sell their new Hot Shot Bites product. Their ad shows a woman trying the snack, then slapping a man across the face.
Others have complained to the company, but KFC’s reply leaves much to be desired. We’re told that one of KFC’s attorneys said that he thought ‘the smack in the commercial was a metaphor with the smack of the flavor.’ When asked if he’d find it acceptable if the roles were reversed, he remained silent. Then he stated that the commercial will continue to air.
Are we going to take this lying down? Heck no!
On behalf of all victims of abuse, thank you,
