At one Burger King location in San Francisco, the fast food chain is offering customers a new way to "be your way" with "The Proud Whopper."
The company released the specially packaged gay pride Whopper in connection with San Francisco's annual gay pride celebrations, HuffPo reported. The burger is exactly the same as a regular Whopper, but it comes packaged in a special rainbow-colored wrapper that reads, "We are all the same inside."

With this BK should bring back their "Have it your way" slogan.

How about a straight pride burger? Seems like being gay is flavour of the month!

The writing on the wrapper was good "we're all the same on the inside"

so, on the one hand, i saw that all the proceeds are going to charity, which is ok. on the other hand, they're going to a charity that was founded by burger king themselves, so... is that really all that charitable? i don't know. it's so hard to judge with corporate sponsored things like this.

"We're all the same on the inside".

If that's a reference to being a homosexual, not really.

I'm sick and tired of all the pro gay propaganda.

I really don't care which way someone swings, why do some gay people feel the need to advertise the fact? "Look at me everyone, i'm gay, aren't i special"

Buy that burger and paint a big target on your back and open yourself up to all manner of anti gay attacks.

Seriously, nobody cares, just buy a standard burger like everyone else.

I agree with this 100%

Also, the Black history Month, etc,etc,etc....

I am not prejudice at all, but come on.

If straight, white guys made their own TV channel, and had a " straight,white, history month " how would this fly?

I am sick of it too.


Although, if you want to get on a reality TV show, make sure you send in a video of you being an obnoxious, flamboyant, gay person......That will up your chances big time.

It wasn't really propaganda, it was only in 1 store, on 1 day where gay pride was. It was just Burger King trying to cash in on a target audience. Nothing more, nothing less. I really don't see the big deal.

Why do statements like "I'm not prejudice" always come before the word "but"


And if straight white people had been the subject of violence and your afformentioned prejudice, just for being who they are, then I'm sure they would have a straight white pride march too.

you already have all of those things, people. it's called everything, everywhere else.

get this straight: you are not marginalized. you are not oppressed. you do not live in danger because of who you are. you are on top. society is built in such a way that it favors you.

and then you complain when minorities have the gall to be proud of the fact that they have survived in this world.
