Burger King Unveils ‘Proud Whopper’ Campaign During LGBT Pride Weekend In San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Burger fans are racing to grab ‘proud’ burgers from a chain in San Francisco whose ad campaign is going viral.
A Burger King in San Francisco began selling ‘Proud Whoppers’ over the weekend during the LGBT Pride celebration. The gay pride themed burger comes in a rainbow colored wrapper, and a matching crown.
“It’s a smart thing to do. San Francisco is a very diverse community,” ‘Proud Burger’ fan Youri Litvine said.
Others saw it as a public relations move.
“Personally, I find this to be corporate pandering to a group of people that they never cared about before,” Tom Urani said. He bought a burger to get the crown.
The campaign is set to end Thursday.
