In a recent radio ad McDonald's states that they are not dangerous and that "petting a stray pitbull - now that's dangerous." Well, DUH! Petting any stray dog is dangerous, especially a larger breed because they COULD do damage if they chose to. But, the point is that MCDs exclusively singled out "pitbulls" which further aids to the ignorance of breed discrimination. If they had stated "petting a stray dog - now that's dangerous" then it would be ok. But instead they chose to promote a negative image of pitbulls alone which is offensive to alot of lovers of pitbulls and pitbull owners. Now by calling the customer satisfaction line at "Ž18002446227 they issue an apology and state that they are pulling the ad. But the apology is only heard by people who actually care about the breeds misrepresentation. I would be satisfied if they issued a PUBLIC apology, AND if they used a pitbull in a favorable fashion in future advertisements so that they could attempt to make amends for portraying pitbulls in such an unfavorable light.
