This Sign About A Football Rivalry Had A Fast Food Giant Quickly Apologizing
This sign was put up to support the KC Chiefs (obviously), but it has forced a fast food giant to apologize to anybody and everybody.
See who had the offending message in their front yard.
This photo of a signboard on the lawn of a Belton, Missouri Sonic Drive In caught people’s attention in a hurry. Unfortunately, most people weren’t thinking about football when they saw it, either in person or on Twitter.
Sonic was quick to apologize and the offending signboard was quickly taken down. Patrick Lenow, vice-president of public relations for Sonic told NBC News “In a misguided effort to support his football team an independent franchise owner allowed passion to override good judgement.” He called the remarks wrong, offensive and unacceptable. Another representative for Sonic said that the sign was put up by a “creative” employee, and that it was “in poor taste.”
I don’t think this sign was meant to be racist, but please share your opinion. Do you feel that people lost the true intention of the message?
