Sign this petition to tell Burger King to stop canine profiling!

Petitions by Change.org|Start a Petition »

Here is the petition text:

Burger King's new breakfast commercial depicting a mailman walking down the street with two dogs hanging off him singing "Rottweilers and pit bulls-doing the mailman thing" is extremely offensive to dog lovers. 

This ill-conceived commercial reinforces the stereotypes of pit bulls and Rottweilers as dangerous dogs. It will fuel breed discriminatory legislation costing innocent dogs their lives. As we have seen from the Michael Vick case and the new book, the Lost Dogs, all dogs are individuals and should be judged by their temperament not their breed.

I urge Burger King to reject canine profiling and help stop breed discrimination by pulling this offensive commercial.

Thank you for your consideration.

Hugs & Wags, Jess
