Sexist Ad Outrages Teachers (Hardee's - Video)

Hardee's burger chain has the macho moron market all sewn up. The Tennessee Education Association (TEA) wants you to contact sicko burger chain Hardee's (aka, Carl's Jr.) and request that the company stop airing the following sexist ad. According to Dr. Earl Wiman, president of the Tennessee Education Association, "The commercial is absolutely atrocious and disrespectful of the teaching profession." We agree. Watch it.

Flat Buns

Hardee's Flat Buns ad is currently playing in Nashville, but the folks in Chattanooga have declined to run it.

Hardee's Corporate Headquarters
100 North Broadway, Suite 1200
St. Louis, MO 63102
Contact Hardee's online

Atrociously sexist ads are nothing new for Hardee's. There aren't many businesses that I actively despise, but Hardee's is one. Every time I see an ad for Hardee's, a wave of nausea ensues.

Again, the burger chain has the macho moron market all sewn up. And after reading a defense of the Flat Buns ad by Hardee's Executive Vice President Brad Haley, I understand why Hardee's is so effective at appealing to sexist morons. Here's another ad. Watch it.
