Burger King Celebrates Same-Sex Marriage With The ‘Proud’ Whopper

With the national focus on the LGBT Pride Movement, it was only a matter of time before this happened. Popular fast food chain Burger King has dedicated a Whopper to homosexuality with the creation of the gay pride burger.

USA Today reported:

The inspiration behind the unusual burger wrap and video, he says, is Burger King’s localized efforts to put into motion actions that support its recently-tweaked slogan: “Be Your Way.”

The move also demonstrates BK’s desire to stay connected to its base of Millennial customers. Gay rights is an issue that reverberates strongly with many Millennials both inside and outside the U.S. Burger King also was a sponsor of San Francisco’s gay pride parade. Machado says that’s the first time Burger King has sponsored a gay pride parade in the U.S., though it may have sponsored some outside the country.

All Proud Whopper sandwich sales, Machado says, will be donated to the Burger King McLamore Foundation for scholarships benefiting LGBT high school seniors graduating in spring 2015.

  1. I think I prefer ‘having it my way’ without having someone’s sexual preference shoved down my throat along with my hamburger ,,, definitely a plus for McDonalds

    • For you it’s probably not a big accomplishment, for lgbt people this was something as big as the enslavement ban in US, if you don’t celebrate it, why do you fucking complain if other people do? Do you see muslims, jewish people or indians complaining about christians celebrating christmas?

      You’re just a sad butthurt traditionalist garbage who can’t tolerate people with different opinions than your own and you have to bitch when you see other people celebrating something you don’t take part into, grow up.

      • Martin, Did you not read the article? The money goes to LGBT seniors for scholarships. Straight students are discriminated against for NOT being gay. Yep, That’s a wonderful progressive movement.

      • Did you seriously just try to equate a bunch of ungrateful obnoxious sickofints running around making a mockery of any thing and every thing to Christmas? At least Christmas is tasteful and respectful and guess what, calibrated by millions who aren’t even Christian you excuse for birth control. And by the way as a matter of fact, I do see Muslims Jews and Indians complaining about how big the holiday is so try knowing something before opening your food processor. And for the record, trying to equate emancipation to gay marriage is absolutely insulting to any effected by slavery. Emancipation was the declaration that no man is so beneath another that you may own him. Gay marriage is nothing more than the government saying that you can sign a piece of paper and pay USA more taxes and deal with the bull crap of divorce. It’s not like you need the government’s permission to get married. A holy matrimony is a promise between two people and their God, whoever that may be, to live out your life together and be there for one another. The government can’t grant that or deny it. All they can do is track it and tax it. And to fool yourself into thinking this is some great accomplishment the gay community has achieved, making themselves beholden more to the government, than you are a tool. As for the celebrating, they want to have pride in their relations, fine, they can still show some civility about it. There’s no need for running around half naked, practically screwing in the streets, carrying obscene objects threat no child should have to see, mocking religions and military monuments. It’s uncalled for.

      • Nah. Muslims don’t complain. They don’t waste their Islamic time doing that.
        They shove LGBTs off two story buildings cut their heads off just after they are beaten and tortured.
        Bad choice of a group to legitimize your post.

      • Christians have had just about everything taken from them! You can not be that stupid! LGBT was not happy till they took Marriage away from Christians, Now the word means nothing! There is no longer any GOD in our schools, Government Buildings, City halls, like you people put up such a cry baby defense, they removed everything Christian, yet allow Muslims to have their faith and use it when it comes to their jobs and everything else they want! That’s right! OUR GOVERNMENT! So don’t give me that cry baby bullshit! Christian are losing more and more rights, Our Once Great Nation is being sold right out from under us! Why? Because WE THE PEOPLE allowed them to take GOD out of our everyday life’s! But hear this! and hear me good you snot nose know nothing, WE THE PEOPLE are getting our stuff together and will be taking back our Great Nation!..It will become One Nation Under God Again! The trouble making Muslims will be knocking each other over to get out of America! As for the LGBTs, their head dumb ass has already said she just wanted Gay Marriage to pass so they can show Marriage means nothing! and is now going to work on having Marriage altogether thrown out! Nice right! and all of the government went so over the top being PC for it! And did it all for nothing! The White House lite up like rainbow trucking bright! Did they change the lights to Red, White and Blue on the fourth? Hell No! I Like to know who the hell said they can take something as beautiful as the Rainbow and make it just theirs?! First the word Gay, changed it from meaning Happy to meaning a group of people, our rainbow and now Marriage! Yet, We Christians don’t know how it feels to be victims???…Indeed! What Burger King is doing is not only stupid on their part, but will lose a lot of customers! Now that’s something to celebrate!! Just because the law was changed by the Far left PC Jackass’s does not mean every American is happy about it…Because there are more unhappy then happy about this, and every other thing the government is doing! Celebrate while you can dip Chit!

        • True. Christians haven’t been under these attacks foe inside and outside the Church in recent memory. I guess we are headed for a war or to go underground.

        • #George as far as I recall straight people were never discriminated or had to deal with family rejection due to them being attracted to the opposite gender, 20% and 40% of homeless youth in the United States identifies itself as LGBT due to having been thrown off by their parents. According to the Williams Institute, 68% of surveyed homeless LGBT youth reported being rejected by their families, and 54% reported being abused. On top of that, another 14% reported lack of financial or emotional support from their families, and still you think it’s a wrong cause to help the ones that were lucky enough to get into college? If anything, I would have prefered if the money was sent instead to homeless LGBT shelters, granted that they are in much worse financial situations than college students.

          #Chris no respectful muslim/jew/indian gives a shit about christmas, and you are right, as far as I recall I had a muslim friend celebrate christmas with me too, because he was that friendly and didn’t care for the religious differences between us, and yeah, just like them there are also some spiteful and intolerant bigots who can’t stand other groups’ celebrations, just like you, do we like such people? No, muslims that hate christians and other religions are extremists, they kill and torture in the name of their God, christians that hate LGBT people also fall into the same cathegory, you are not better than them at all, thank you for clearing my point.

          Like I said previously in my post, LGBT people face threats and discriminations everywhere, you think this was just about marriage? You are more of a tool of your own ideals than you call of me, this isn’t just about having the same benefits as a married couple legally, but it shows a huge acceptance to the LGBT country-wide, not by the sad excuses for progression and traditionalism your people are, but by the nation itself, your statement of “lol ignore law you’re still both married in my eyes” is more stupid than you appear yourself to be, and could get you into many legal problems if you seriously think this way. No body gives a shit about your disgusting “Holy Matrimony”, personally I’m all up for the legal benefits that put me into it, such as adoption, visa, life insurance, etc. As for your last statement, pride paraders are done to give hope to the ones that have lost it, for people to shout for those who are too scared to talk, and to run around in middle of the streets for those who don’t even want to leave their rooms, you have no fucking idea of the fear and anxiety young LGBT people have to deal with in their lives when they are told by the people, their friends and family that gays are a sin and he’ll go to hell, that they’ll be kicked off, tortured and killed if someone knows, they they are treated like the worst kind of criminals, and you DARE to ignore this just because the loudest LGBT posers are on the first line of the parades, yes, no body likes posers like these, but instead of caring about what these people do, I rather care about how to be a better person myself, they should take responsibility to their own actions, falling off for stereotypes is just a misleading way into regression, who cares if some gay people like to act like fucking butterflies? who cares if some muslims are terrorists? who cares if some black people are thieves? Does that give you the right to label EVERYONE as it?

          #RayNAiken, clearly you didn’t read my post at all or didn’t care to, I said muslims did not mind CHRISTMAS, not LGBT people, of course they hate LGBT people, their extremists are even louder than the christian ones, next time, read a post before you make a comment.

          #Baby you call us crybabies yet you seem to cry more over simple words than someone does when they are dragged to the streets and executed in public.

          • I don’t hate gay people. I do hate the politicization of the movement and bullying. Like being vegan, if that’s your style then fine. If you want to slap it in my face then you will get a reaction.

        • I didn’t like burger King anyway. They want to trample all over chick-fa- LA and cry when Christians don’t want to eat burger King now… hhhmmmm? I totally agree t

      • Martin: Who won’t even show his full name, has to resort to profanity to get his AMORAL lies out to people who rightfully disagree with his sick views.

        • “H-he mentioned christmas along with the word gay in the same sentence! S-sacrilege! Blasphemy!”

          Also, you’re one to talk when it’s about spreading lies that cost the lives of millons of innocent people and keeps costing them due to all the hate that your book spreads to its people. Oh yeah, my “sick views” have indeed cost the lives of so many people, how DARE I to tell people to leave at peace and don’t mind the business of others in however they are happy with. How DARE I to un-rightfully tell people to grow up and stop finding retarded reasons to bash others for who they choose to love to.

          I’m seriously fed up with how brainwashed to the core can people become into thinking they have the right to judge others as if they can get away with their own flaws, neither YOU or your fantasy book has the right in modern world to bash others for their beliefs, unless of course that you live in a shithole somewhere in the Middle East, but that’s not the case of course.

          Oh and yeah, I have the right to keep my personal info if I please, this isn’t a formal speech debate nor an introduction, I don’t need to give you more info than my first name, but since you noticed I didn’t put it I’d assume you probably tried to track me down right away (Not really, but what do you care if I put it or not in the first place?)

      • Actually yes. We hear a lot of complaining about Christmas every Christmas. Some stores are not allowing their employees to say “Merry Christmas.” There are always complaints for ACLU and other atheist organizations that Nativity Scenes are offensive so if I don’t want to eat a Whopper out of a rainbow wrapper that is my decision. I am sure you will continue to eat whoppers and do other disgusting things with them anyway.

  2. Man with man, woman to woman, to the polluting of marriage,
    Of which I had sanctified in My own name!…

    The defiling of flesh, even of this temple I have given you!…

    ABOMINATION!

    Therefore, thus says The Lord your Maker, yes I, The Creator of all things!… Thus says The Lord God: You have hastened the Day, O perverse and arrogant generation! Even you have hastened the Day! It shall no more tarry! Judgment has come, it is here! My arm is out-stretched! You are fallen!… Undone, says The Lord.
    For I have indeed called to you, and in return what do I hear?!… BLASPHEMIES of such a kind!… Of which your forefathers would have never accepted! For I tell you, if they were able to behold it, if they had lived to see the day, their hearts would have waxed cold, with their faces paling, their eyes gathering blackness… And yet you neigh, being led from here to there, as though you had no mind or spirit at all!

    Therefore, thus says The Lord: You are all rotting corpses! And the stench of your flesh shall be for a testament against you, even for all those who are afar off, who take to themselves My name and then in turn pollute it!…
    Did you think you had received, being blessed in this land, of yourselves?! Behold, it was I, even I, who had done it!… Even according to the desire of your forefathers, who came seeking to build a nation of freedom, building it upon My Word and My foundations written in The Scriptures of Truth, resting solidly upon My Law, the bedrock by which all shall govern themselves… Yet you turned, and desecrated and corrupted My name for your own glory, taking that which is Mine and calling it your own.

    Sons of men, of this nation once called of itself,
    “One nation under God”…

    I DO NOT KNOW YOU!…

    Neither do any of these churches, built up and named of men,
    Seek My face, nor do they walk in My ways…

    Even to the utter forsaking of MY Law!

    Pastors and teachers, you have not received of Me, neither do you know Me or My will! Stop blaspheming and teaching your flocks, in MY name! You teach heresies and lies, in your own names, by which you have appointed yourselves! I have not sent you, neither have I appointed you, yet there you are, teaching and preaching in My name, taking tithes from the people.
    Churches of men, stop speaking! Shut your mouths! Be silent before your God! AND REPENT! Give back all which you have stolen from Me, and tear down these walls; sell all you have, and give it to the poor!… Before calamity comes.

    Thus says The Lord: Churches of men, you were to be My examples. You were to uphold My Moral Law, even by Jesus Christ who you say lives in you… I DO NOT SEE HIM! Therefore, I say, repent! Wail, and bring forth many tears, even for all those innocent slain before your eyes, in where you have not taken a stand.
    Churches of men, My face is set hard against you! Your stench rises to Heaven! Even all your musings and soft words have entered into My ears, a perversion among many faces… Preach My Word IN TRUTH! Be instant, in and out of season, never ceasing from testifying to the hope that I have given you in Christ. Stop tickling the ears of all these hearers. For you have all become like the soothsayers, like smooth-talkers who lull My people to sleep, saying, “Peace, peace and safety, riches will come. Trust in The Lord”… Am I a God afar off?! Or am I a God close at hand?!
    Therefore, because you have spoken in this manner, ignoring My correction, refusing to harken to My words; neither have you sought after true wisdom, choosing rather to rest upon human power, even upon all these perverse doctrines, the doctrines of men…

    Thus says The Lord:

    You, even you, O churches of men, shall fall also.
    Behold, you are fallen already.

    For nothing, within your nation’s borders,
    Shall escape My judgment…

    All shall be thrown down!

    Thus have I spoken against you, O peoples of these United States, and so shall it be done. For I, The Lord your God have proclaimed it, and behold I, even I, shall bring it to pass, for all your forsaking of Me and My Law. For I had written it upon your hearts, yet you have scraped off the writing, leaving your hearts broken and scarred, desolate and void of The Spirit. For whosoever comes speaking against My Word, or against My prophets, shall be left utterly desolate… Even from those who cast stones at them, in open and in secret, have I removed My hand already.

  3. Not for me or my bunch!! It really is Disgraceful that business are implementing such bull! Keep iit OUT, OUT, OUT of Business!! Funny how none implemented that Red, White, Blue!! Will make my burgers at home now thank you and it’s a shame! Burger King was our favorite burgers!!

  4. No thanks. I’ll be taking my business now to Chick-Fil-A. What’s the gimmick with this Gayboy Hamburger? No meat in between the buns? Or is it a hot dog wedged into the bun?

  5. I’m a God Loving Christian. I’m not going to quote Biblical Verse because most Christians are already aware and most homo’s hearts are hardened and don’t wan to hear the “Uncensored Truth”. I am also a celibate, repentant homo, tired of the sick lifestyle that homos live. Am also greatly disturbed that a majority vote of 1 immoral judge is sending the USA to hell. I am also GREATLY sick and tired of having this sin crammed down my throat every where I go. It’s DISGUSTING, and as a Activist Christian , I am posting and sharing my thoughts on EVERY WEBSITE that I visit, and I pray, Fellow Christians, that you, if not already, are doing the same thing! Praise God! Thank-You Jesus for the MANY Prayers Answered!

    • “I am also a celibate, repentant homo, tired of the sick lifestyle that homos live” Hahahahaha, I can assure you that you’ll live with a bigger emptiness in your heart than you already do for the years to come for what you just said, “repentant homo”, this is sort of sad honestly, you’re so in denial that you’ll repress yourself and probably die that way, you’ll probably marry and have kids, you’ll always have that remorse in your mind, and I can assure you, life has a iron hand for justice and the karma you’re developing now will come back to you, probably with homosexual kids, a sibling, etc. I’ve seen it beforehand with my own eyes and lived it with my own flesh and you won’t be an exception, the same words you’re spreading now will be the very ones you’ll one day deny. I’ll just keep living happily the way I came to this world, you’ll keep living all your life a lie and one day, you’ll realize, and when you do, it will be too late for you.

  6. “We are all the same inside”.

    False.

    Those who are gay are more likely than not to be carrying a certain retrovirus.

    Okay?

  7. I think for about the past decade Burger King has done more harm to their own business with their own advertising. I remember they had the It just tastes better” campaign and I would eat there often. I think they actually have a better product than McDonalds but Burger Kings advertising sucks. The creepy king campaign to me was a train wreck. Now they are getting involved in controversy. Whether you support gay marriage or not it is a stupid business idea to take either side when you need to sell a lot of product. Who ever makes these decisions for Burger King should be demoted or fired. There is just too much competition for stupid decisions.
