Burger King Sorry For Offer To Women Who Get Pregnant By Footballers by Gangster1ms: 10:36pm On Jun 20, 2018
Burger King has said it is sorry for offering a lifetime supply of Whoppers to Russian women who get pregnant by World Cup players.

Critics condemned the offer, announced on Russian social media, as sexist and demeaning.

The announcement was removed on Tuesday from Burger King's social media accounts but is still circulating among Russian social network users.

It promised a reward to women who get "the best football genes" and "ensure the success of the Russian team for generations to come".

The fast food company posted a Russian-language statement on local network VKontakte saying "we offer apologies for the announcement we made. It was too offensive".

Ads in Russia often play on sexist stereotypes, notably ads around sports events such as the World Cup.
