Ouch. BK burned itself on their own attempt at political flame-broiling:
Was Burger King's account hacked, or did someone genuinely think promoting a false narrative on a contentious policy is smart business sense? https://t.co/6GjLJTOhDB

Weâ€™re not quite sure what they were thinking.
Please stay out of politics if you donâ€™t want people to stay out of Burger Kingâ€¦btw trying to spin net neutrality as necessary is laughable as the internet worked just fine pre-neutrality. It only existed for a hot second anyway

Please, stick to flame broiling. And subservient chickens.

Nothing in this video makes logical sense.

Maybe stick to making fast food, BK? Just a thought.
Anyone notice the lame trolling by the "king" at the end of the video?
Yeah, we've seen the Reece's mug before. That's Ajit Pai's mug. pic.twitter.com/Xz0wMoRg0y
