Burger King’s celebration of gay pride got lost on a few people. In the newly-released video, the hamburger appears different on the outside, but soon enough customers realize it’s the same Whopper the fast-food chain has been selling for years. Once unwrapped, the words “We are all the same inside” are revealed on the wrapper.

And now, Burger King is under fire for their new ‘gay burger’.  Maybe Burger King should help those who object  by selling a Closet Burger.

The burgers aren’t gay but don’t tell the homophobes that. Apparently they didn’t watch the video. So now they want to boycott Burger King, and one Twitter user even blames Obama. Naturally. The Daily Caller titled a post, “Burger King: Have It, You’re Gay.”

The Proud Whopper, a limited edition product is sold in FABULOUS San Francisco for one week only, so the boycott had better be really, really fast.

GayStarNews reports, “Some social media users were outraged by the burger, a standard Whopper with a rainbow wrapper with the message: ‘We Are All The Same Inside’. Using the hashtag #BoycottBurgerKing, some said they would not eat there until they stopped selling the ‘fag burgers’.”


I’m not sure there are straight burgers, but whatevs. On an aside: My gay BFF is visiting from out of town. She’s laughing her ass off at this:

It’s just a hamburger. I guess we aren’t all the same inside. Some people aren’t so pretty when you have a glance of what goes on, on the inside.

We embedded the video yesterday but I’ll add it again here in case you missed it:

Republicans really suck at boycotts anyway. How dare people Openly Carry Proud Burgers. That’s so dangerous.

To The Daily Caller’s credit, the author did write, “Meanwhile, the cows are all like: “Uh… hello? Over here? You’re actually eating our insides? Do we get a say in this?” But who cares, everybody knows cows are a bunch of straighties.”

H/T: My buddy @Tomcinmidlife with thanks.

    Come with extra meat and pickles. There an off the menu tuna fish version.

    LMAO! Do you think that the “MrsPrim” tweet was a bit subliminal; “Don’t *ram* your liberal views on us! Will not be eating there till you change wrapper.”

    Ahh, oh well, haters gonna hate!

    • Anomaly 100 July 3rd, 2014 at 8:41 am

      That went over my head when I first read the tweet. I need more coffee.

        I almost tweeted to her to “open wide” (remember, it takes two hands to handle a whopper) 😛

        • Anomaly 100 July 3rd, 2014 at 9:12 am

          Just to blow their minds (see what I did there?), Burger King should create a Bi-Burger.

          • granpa.usthai July 3rd, 2014 at 11:08 am

            great idea, Anomaly, and if Burger King don’t catch on, there’s lots of other fast foods that will.

            just think: a burger that’s beef and veggies, kinda like Campbell’s beef and vegetable soup!

            Soup on a BUN!

  3. Rusty Shackleford July 3rd, 2014 at 8:48 am

    “Once unwrapped, the words “We are all the same inside” are revealed on the wrapper.”

    Here’s the thing: we’re NOT the same. My life experiences and relationships will be completely different from yours. We are DIFFERENT, but that does not mean we should be UNEQUAL.

    The troubling implication of this kumbaya bullshit rhetoric is that you apparently need people to be just like you for you to consider them worthy of basic dignity and respect.

    • gil reyes July 3rd, 2014 at 10:38 am

      we are the same inside stupid!!!! we have a heart,lungs liver etc. your stupidity is showing bright as a rainbow

      • Rusty Shackleford July 3rd, 2014 at 10:41 am

        Great, and my internal organs are relevant why? Is that your metric for the value of a person’s life, their bodily functions? Not their experiences, perspectives, or actions?

        • Kick Frenzy July 3rd, 2014 at 10:51 pm

          It’s not the metric for the value of someones life, but it is a worthwhile truth.
          The point is… we’re all human and should be treated as such.

          A wrapper with a supportive message may not change existing laws, but it does encourage decency and fair treatment for everyone.
          And a larger percentage of the population that supports fair and equal treatment will increase the public voice and outcry for laws that reflect that.

      • granpa.usthai July 3rd, 2014 at 11:11 am

        glad you sorted out the GOPs at the start.
        No heart.

    • ChrisVosburg July 3rd, 2014 at 12:02 pm

      I dunno, Rusty, if Burger King wants to do a little community outreach, that’s fine with me.

      You may know that BK has recently changed its ad slogan from “Have it Your Way” to “Be Your Way,” which does seem to be more a celebration of diversity than sameness.

      You can read more about BK’s Commitment to Diversity here.

      • Rusty Shackleford July 3rd, 2014 at 12:46 pm

        Sounds like a pretty empty platitude when they have no non-discrimination policy for trans people.

        • ChrisVosburg July 3rd, 2014 at 1:15 pm

          Absent a “straights only, others need not apply” sign out front, it’s difficult to conclude that their hiring practices are discriminatory. Their Commitment to Diversity statement would seem to indicate that such discriminatory practices would be unwelcome.

          Maybe I’m missing a step here: Are you saying that they are discriminatory?

          • Rusty Shackleford July 3rd, 2014 at 1:21 pm

            I’m saying that a rainbow wrapper doesn’t actually DO ANYTHING for the LGBT community. There is currently no federal protection for LGBT people facing employment discrimination in the private sector, and only a handful of states provide such protections for trans people. That would at least be SOMETHING tangible they could do.

            This is just marketing. It’s turning the LGBT movement, our struggle, into a product. An accessory for straight “allies” to feel like they’re doing something without actually doing something.

            I barely tolerate capitalism as it is, never mind when it starts commodifying my community’s oppression.

          • ChrisVosburg July 3rd, 2014 at 1:35 pm

            Actually, Burger King’s Careers page does seem to address this, and contains the following:

            “Burger King is an Equal Opportunity Employer:
            It is the policy of the Company to ensure equal employment opportunity without discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, race, age, religion, national origin, pregnancy, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status or any other characteristic protected by law. The Company prohibits and will not tolerate any such discrimination or harassment.”

            The EEOC has weighed in the subject, and said in 2012 that transgender employees are in fact covered by existing law, and that employers who discriminate on this basis are in violation. They also provide helpful tips to employers on how not to be clueless dicks.

            In other news, I start next week. You want fries with that?

          • Rusty Shackleford July 3rd, 2014 at 1:44 pm

            I’m more than familiar with the EEOC’s stance. I’m also familiar with the reality of the world we live in, and how getting the “sex-based discrimination” case to stick in court is a complete crapshoot. That’s why ENDA is still necessary.

            None of this changes that a rainbow wrapper is an empty platitude commodifying the movement for profit. In an absolute best case scenario, it’s a minor statement of “We accept you.” Well done, you met the baseline bare minimum standard of “decent human being.” You don’t get a cookie for that.

          • ChrisVosburg July 3rd, 2014 at 2:01 pm

            Yeah, I see what you mean, Rusty. Progress can be maddeningly slow, as is so often the case, but I take heart that progress is being made, as is indicated by the EEOC clarification. We’ve come a long way from the days when Barney’s Beanery here in Hollywood felt free to legend its matchbooks (remember matchbooks?) with “Fagots Stay Out.” [sic]

    I think they should change their name to “Burger Queen” Maybe the Homophobes/haters will just keel right over.. 😉

    What a campy video. “*Sob*, a burger has never made me cry before *sniff*” (guess you’ve never been to a White Castle)
    Oh well, it got peoples attention, and that’s the purpose of advertisement.
    Here’s what should really be printed on the wrapper.

  6. Tommy6860 July 3rd, 2014 at 9:47 am

    I made the mistake of reading more of MrsPrim’s tweets, this is so nasty, I started crying :'(

    So what’s the deal with the Gay Whopper? If I order it, does some dude come out to hold my pickle?

    • Rusty Shackleford July 3rd, 2014 at 10:05 am

      You order it, it comes in a rainbow wrapper, and you get that feel-good warm and fuzzy feeling as though you did something useful by supporting an empty platitude from a multinational corporation that doesn’t want to ACTUALLY do anything helpful for the LGBT community.

      Hooray for capitalism, turning our oppression into a marketable product!

      • R.J. Carter July 3rd, 2014 at 10:12 am

        There’s a conversation starter: What could BK do that would “ACTUALLY do anything helpful for the LGBT community”? You’re right, the burger rainbow wrapper doesn’t do anything more substantial that a rainbow triangle on your bumper — or even a full blown gay pride parade. It’s all just advertising.

        • Rusty Shackleford July 3rd, 2014 at 10:34 am

          Don’t be hating on the pride parade. That’s SELF-advocacy. That’s a community showing solidarity with each other.

          Maybe if some of the proceeds from this burger actually went to LGBT causes. Or maybe if Burger King had an employment nondiscrimination policy that included trans people, or included their needs in their healthcare plans.

          But a rainbow wrapper with a problematic message ain’t doing it for me.

          • Chinese Democracy July 4th, 2014 at 1:04 am

            With state-level gay marriage bans toppling like congregants at a Pentecostal revival, it makes sense that more and more corporations would be courting the LGBT community lol

            Im happy considering 10 yrs ago BK wouldnt even come close to supporting gay pride

    • Carla Akins July 4th, 2014 at 6:10 pm

I don’t flaunt my heterosexuality either. Not that I didn’t in the past. I have been forced into it for fear I might lose my job if someone found out I contributed to a defense of marriage act PAC.
            Respect must be mutual. Driving heterosexuals into the closet isn’t the solution. It creates animosity and being vastly outnumbered is a game you will lose.

          • Anomaly 100 July 4th, 2014 at 10:08 am

            Your comments are pure rubbish. It’s almost as if you’re copy and pasting them from WorldNetDaily.

            Please proceed, but be sure to not ‘flaunt’ your heterosexuality but kissing your wife-first cousin in public, or wearing ‘stud’ emblazoned across your extra-small-sized t-shirt.

          • Justin Volke V July 4th, 2014 at 3:41 pm

            Unlike homosexuals who are so insecure that they must flaunt their sexuality in order to convince themselves they are normal we don’t have to it is more like homosexuals are heterophobic and must rebel against anyone who is, even their own parents.

            You can not catch homosexuality anymore than you can catch Down’s syndrome. Both have been around since Lucy took her first steps on the equatorial plaines of what is now Ethiopia.

          • Cat L July 4th, 2014 at 11:09 am

            Oh, puhleeze! Driving heterosexuals into the closet? Really? I am heterosexual and the only time I spend in my closet is when I’m looking for a particular blouse. I feel ZERO threats from the gay community. If gay marriage is legalized, I see absolutely no reason it will change hetero marriage. That’s the dumbest argument ever, and almost everything that comes out of the mouth of a republican or an evangelical is dumb. What are you so afraid of? Are you so weak you think you will “catch the gay?”

      Why is that politicizing their product? Celebrating culture and people is good thing. But I can name a plethora of products that could be construed as being sold as a means of politicizing, when it isn’t really any of that. When it is politicized, it is brought up by those who get offended at some faux non-conformist attitudes, and their perceptions of some weird straight white culture is offended.

        Hobby lobby doesn’t wrap it’s products in paper with the Ten Commandments printed on it. Chick fil a doesn’t either.

        • mea_mark July 4th, 2014 at 10:15 am

          And nobody ever wraps their products in Christmassy wrappers, right? Sometimes you really do miss the glaringly obvious.

          • Justin Volke V July 4th, 2014 at 2:07 pm

            I have never seen BK use Christmas wrappers on its products and neither have you. So drop the straw man BS.
            If I want a christmas gift wrapping at Sears or Target I have to buy the wrapping paper and pay a device fee or I take it home and do it in the privacy of my own home.

          Really? All retailers switch up their packaging from time to time to highlight something. It could be McD’s Monopoly giveaway or Wendy’s ode to mother’s day. Get over it.

    • Laura Renea July 3rd, 2014 at 9:48 pm

      Hobby Lobby bans bc – it’s religious freedom! Burger King has a rainbow wrapper – TYRANNY! SHUT ‘EM DOWN!!

      • Justin Volke V July 4th, 2014 at 2:28 am

        They didn’t ban BC. Stop perpetrating a lie. Every employee has the right to use or not use any form of BC they want. Hobby lobby doesn’t want to know. But there are a tiny few forms it finds morally objectionable and prefers not to pay for. That is their right under the first amendment. The government went too far in demanding it as there is no language in the PPACA that required companies to pay for abortifacients. It was passed because it promised that no tax dollars would be used to fund abortion. When HHS added those four to the list they went beyond the scope of the law.

        • fantagor July 4th, 2014 at 2:35 am

          That paragraph is a class Gish Gallop.

          • Anomaly 100 July 4th, 2014 at 8:08 am

            It’s also a big fat lie.

          • fantagor July 4th, 2014 at 3:36 pm

            That’s what Gish Gallop is, a bundle of lies woven so tightly together the audience can’t begin to unravel them.

        • Shades July 4th, 2014 at 9:52 am

          Just because the Green family pretends to believe BC is abortifacient, that doesn’t make it an abortifacient. In other words, if you truly believe vaccines render people sterile and that goes against the bible’s teaching of going forth and populating the earth, do you get to ban vaccination coverage for your employees?

        • Carla Akins July 4th, 2014 at 5:57 pm

          I can’t believe I have to type this again. The drugs in question are not abortifacients. They do not expel an implanted fertilized egg, the don’t even interfere with a fertilized egg implanting into the uterus. They simply prevent eggs from being fertilized, the exact same way all birth control works. There are no tax dollars paying for abortion in any manner. Science, it’s a real thing – learn it before you spout incorrect ideas all over the internet.

          • Justin Volke V July 4th, 2014 at 11:30 pm

            Your lack of biology is astounding. An IUD prevents implantation of a zygote. By the time the fertilized egg makes its way down the Fallopian tube it has already divided and differentiation of the cells into the various biological systems has begun. Plan b causes a menstrual period which can expel an already implanted embryo as well as preventing a blastocyst from implanting.
            So you can keep posting it a hunted more times but it doesn’t make it correct.

          • Carla Akins July 5th, 2014 at 9:35 am

            No, no it doesn’t. Medical science amended that information 10 years ago.

          • Justin Volke V July 5th, 2014 at 11:00 am

            Thanks for the link to the amicus brief filed by Physicians for Reproductive Health, et al. in the SCOTUS case. I read the entire document, all 57 pages and not once in it do the parties deny that the birth control methods in question cause the termination of a zygote or embryo, which is the exact point of the entire case.
            Their positions were based on two points. One is that birth control is a woman’s right as a general principle. It is better to kill a baby before its born than to have it take a chance on getting less care from a reluctant mother,
            Their second point was that it opened the door to a slippery slope of other objections to providing things like vaccinations and blood transfusions. Again, these are not part of the specific case here.
            If these four methods of BC truly didn’t cause the destruction of a human embryo, you would have thought that somewhere in those 57 pages they would have mentioned it.
            Lazy researchers often cite references with titles that sound convincing, but when you actually read them, their conclusions are not what would be suggested from the title.
            But thanks again for the interesting read.

          • Carla Akins July 5th, 2014 at 12:48 pm

            Okay, if that’s not good enough for you:

            From A spokeswoman for the Sisters of Charity

            Word for word: The drug works primarily by preventing ovulation, potentially keeping eggs from being released and fertilized

            The Catholic Journal:

            NPR says:
            “It is not only factually incorrect, it is downright misleading. These products are not abortifacients,” she says. “And their only connection to abortion is that they can prevent the need for one.”

            Former FDA Assistant Commissioner: “These Products Are Not Abortifacients. And Their Only Connection To Abortion Is That They Can Prevent The Need For One.” According to NPR, studies have shown that “morning-after pills” such as Plan B work by “preventing ovulation, and therefore, fertilization” and do not “inhibit implantation”:


            Seriously, do you want me to go on – the amicus brief does address this issue, you either didn’t read it or didn’t understand it/

            Try google – there are thousands of legitimate references to the misunderstanding of how these drugs work. Or you could simply ask your trusted doctor next time you see him.

          so there was some controversy about burgers sexual desires?

    • Cat L July 4th, 2014 at 11:02 am

      So why are the xtians stupid enough to call them gay burgers?

      • Justin Volke V July 4th, 2014 at 10:56 pm

        I have no idea of what an xtian is. But a burger is an inanimate object. It cannot possess sexual qualities of the heterosexual or homosexual type. So your question is illogical. It can have no logical answer.
        But that doesn’t stop liberals from knowing the answer.

        • Cat L July 5th, 2014 at 5:25 pm

          Well, xtian is my way of showing disrespect to fake christians. Do you understand or do you want that in crayon? As far as the gay burger thing, one of the right wing numbnuts posted something on the twitter feed about straight burgers, so I assumed he also believed there were gayburgers. I know it’s basically wrong, but I was just making fun of the righties. You all make it so easy.

          • Justin Volke V July 5th, 2014 at 7:15 pm

            Oh I get it. Children making fun of adults because they aren’t smart enough to understand let alone debate them intellectually. And children often do things knowing they are wrong. At least you admit it when you are caught. A sign of pending maturity.
            You may eventually grow up into a fine conservative.

            You’re the one who believes in the fairy tale with talking snakes, virgin births, some magic man fixing everything because you get on your knees (oooh, that sounds kinky,) and you call me the child?

    • OrdinaryBloke July 4th, 2014 at 6:49 pm

      I assume you boycott In-N-Out for politicizing all their products?

      • Justin Volke V July 4th, 2014 at 11:07 pm

        As sigmund Freud was reported to have remarked: sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. In-N-Out refers I would assume to drive thru order and leave. Only liberals would think it refers to crotch politics, something they are obsessed with lately. Whether it be homosexuals thinking they can be married de facto even if granted marraige de jure or that birth control is even possible. ( Once implanted in the womb it is out of moms control as to when birth will occur. It is a natural healthy process that occurs even if mom is brain dead. )

        • OrdinaryBloke July 5th, 2014 at 10:38 am

          In other words, you’re a hypocrite. You’re perfectly okay with In N Out wrapping their food in politics, but your filled with poutrage when Burger King does it. Congratulations, you’re a hypocrite. And I think you might be overly high, too. Put down the keyboard.

          • Justin Volke V July 5th, 2014 at 11:06 am

            In-N-Out was not named for a sexual euphamism.

          • OrdinaryBloke July 5th, 2014 at 5:34 pm

            Areally you high, seriously? In N Out prints bible verses on their wrappers. I have no idea what white you’re babbling about.

          • Justin Volke V July 5th, 2014 at 6:47 pm

            Is the name a sexual euphamism it is it not ? Never are there and wouldn’t if they wasted good bible verses as wrapping paper so people could throw it in the garbage.

          • OrdinaryBloke July 5th, 2014 at 7:43 pm

    What a bunch of idiots, getting bent all out of shape because Burger King decided to wap their Whoppers in rainbow wrappers for LGBT Pride Day. So freaking what? Burger King has for years wrapped their Whoppers in green shamrock wrappers for St. Patrick’s Day, orange-and-black jack-o-lantern wrappers for Halloween and red-white-and-green snowflake wrappers for Christmas. So what’s the difference?
