A Burger King in San Francisco did something pretty incredibly awesome for this past weekend's pride parade…
They released the "Proud Whopper!"
So, what's different about this burger? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Which is why it's so incredible.
Inside the burger's wrapper, there's a rainbow and the words:
"We Are All The Same Inside."
That's so amazing! LGBT+ people are no different than anyone else!
We're all unique individuals but we're all people!
A Whopper is gonna be a tasty burger, no matter what you call it.
Fernando Machado, the person behind the "Proud Whopper" and BK's senior vice president of global branding, said:
"As a brand, we welcome everyone. We felt that [the Proud Whopper] could bring to life a message of equality, self-expression, authenticity and just being who you are. As with anything in life, there will be people who will like it, there will people who will dislike it. We just hope that people will understand that the message is a beautiful one… We really want to be more than burgers, fries and shakes… [We want to] occupy a space that's more meaningful to people."
That's seriously so wonderful! Why can't every business be like them??
All we know is, BK just racked up a ton of points in our book! Way to set a great example!
