    McDonald's advert

    McDonald’s has apologised for any upset caused by its new TV advert, which has been accused of exploiting childhood bereavement, but refused to stop it from being broadcast.

    I thought the advert was cute, clever, no big deal.
    Is this PC gone mad yet again ?
    Or is it I suspect a clever advertising stunt by McDonalds ?
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Where I come from it's generally looked on as bad taste. McDonalds are a cultural wasteland and their morally diseased advertising publicists are on a par with Daily Mail reporters.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I didn't see the problem with it.

    But apparently there is a spate of complaints that McDonalds are not withdrawing it, so it's a win win for them.

    A spokeswoman for McDonald's said the British advert will be removed from all media this week and it will review its creative process to avoid a repeat.

    [...]

    "Due to the lead-times required by some broadcasters, the last advert will air on Wednesday 17 May.

    Re: McDonald's advert

    A woman has accused Asda of perpetuating “damaging” stereotypes by selling a child’s jumper emblazoned with the slogan “boys will be boys”.

    She wrote - in an apparently now deleted Facebook post - that the jumper was problematic because it perpetuated the stereotype that men can get away with offensive or misogynistic behaviour by using the age-old slogan.


    Well done Asda..................advertising for free,to the lady.................get a life, take a chill pill.....and meant to offend.........are you at your troubled time ?

    Would she have all such references be removed in all it's various forms throughout history worldwide ?

    Trump and Brock Turner seemed to have benefited from the stereotype.
