We are happy to report that Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) has stopped using their offensive and gender-biased Hot Shot Bites ad, the video that shows a woman slapping a man across the face.
The commercials are no longer running on TV, and when you try to watch the online version you get a ‘restricted access’ message. It looks to us like KFC might be a little bit embarrassed about their poor choice of advertising.
But, our work is not done. We believe that KFC needs to apologize. We think they should acknowledge their mistake, and make a good-will effort on behalf of domestic violence victims.
Please take a moment and make one more phone call, or send one more email to KFC. Ask them to apologize and to make a donation to any organization working for ALL victims of domestic violence. Of course, Stop Abusive and Violent Environments – SAVE – comes to mind.
