Seriously, Burger King, which made the anti-bullying PSA you can see below, is leading the charge and showing that people are apparently more likely to bitch about a smushed sandwich than stand up for a teenager who's being victimized by others.
In the video posted on YouTube, customers protest when they are given a hamburger that a restaurant worker has smooshed.
At the end of the video a message implores people to be as willing to speak up about a bullied person as they are about a bullied burger.
In the ad, both a teen and a burger are bullied - guess which one people are more upset about? The benches, representatives of the chain said in an email, also help school authorities and teachers better identify existing bullying issues.More news: Egypt: 50 policemen killed during clashes with militants
October is National Bullying Prevention Month and fast food giant Burger King has released a compelling video to support the effort. First Lady Melania Trump has been campaigning against cyberbullying even as the president has been accused of it for his name calling on Twitter. Bullying is the exact opposite of that.
This is a total aside, but I have one request for the King: Can you please make the BK Veggie with a vegan burger?
The acting was quite convincing, and the real customers thought it was a real incident, but few spoke up or did anything about it.
