Carl’s Jr/Hardees Patty Melt on Flat Buns Commercial … How Appropriate is this in a Day and Age of Student/Teacher Sex Issues
What on earth is Carl Jr’s and Hardees thinking? How inappropriate could this commercial possibly be and how disrespectful to the teaching profession? The teachers union in Tennessee are up in arms. The ad is not only demeaning to teachers, it raises an even bigger issue of almost condoning teacher/student sex that has been almost an epidemic lately. Hot for Teacher as an 80’s music video is one thing, but an ad campaign for a business? Shame on you.
The ad features an actress undulating on and around her desk like a stripper while students rap about how they like “flat buns” — promoting Hardee’s Carl’s Jr. chain and its patty melt sandwich.
“How irresponsible can you get?” Earl Wiman, president of the Tennessee Education Association, said in a statement.
“At this very moment, there are female teachers in high school classrooms with 30+ students who are working hard to teach our children so that they can compete in today’s world,” he continued.
