I wish I could say I feel bad about this, but I simply do not. Get woke, go broke. Burger King sucks anyway.
According to FoxNews:
This probably didn’t go the way they hoped it would.
In honor of International Women’s Day, a number of companies and brands are using social media to share supportive messages or promote their own relevant initiatives for female employees. Burger King U.K. apparently tried to do the latter, but has since come under fire for its statements, which the fast-food chain appeared to present in a joking manner.
On Monday, the Burger King U.K. account tweeted out a message simply reading “women belong in the kitchen.” The brand followed it up with another tweet, clarifying that women only belong in the kitchen “if they want to, or course.”
“Yet only 20% of chefs are women. We’re on a mission to change the gender ratio in the restaurant industry by empowering female employees with the opportunity to pursue a culinary career,” the second tweet clarified.
The company concluded by announcing a scholarship program “which will help female Burger king employees pursue their culinary dreams!”
