Default Taco Bell pulls ad that mocked veggies

Taco Bell pulls ad that mocked veggies - Yahoo! TV


Taco Bell is pulling a TV ad after receiving complaints that it discouraged people from eating vegetables.

The ad by the fast-food chain was touting its variety 12-pack of tacos, with a voiceover saying that bringing a vegetable tray to a party is "like punting on fourth and one." It said that people secretly hate guests who bring vegetables to parties.



I think that we have gone too far in our attempt to 'offend no one'!

I'd have more respect for a company if they told retards like those who got offended to shove it up their ass.

Honestly, I'm sick to death of the nanny attitude.

Taco Bell sells taco's. Cheap, bad for you, delicious tacos. A mainstay of the diet of the 2am "I've got the munchies bad, dude" stoners.

Why the hell shouldn't they be allowed an ad campaign tailored to what they provide!

The same whiners don't worry about the erosion of our rights but get concerned about this. They are part of the spoiled brat generation that is used to getting their way with enough crying.

Me too, what do they hope to gain by backing down? More vegans? Umm, Taco Bell, the veggie eaters don't eat tacos.

The only reason to take veggies to a party, it to not be invited to more parties.

Tells me you were too damn lazy to go through the drive through and get 12 tacos. A true friend would get 24.
