Burger King Russia Apologise After Offering Women Lifetime Supply Of Whoppers If They Impregnate Players At World Cup

I hope you're sat down for this one because what you are about to read is seriously bizarre.

Burger King's Russia franchise have apologised after their social media campaign offering a lifetime supply of Whopper Burgers and Russian Roubles to women if they get impregnated by footballers during the World Cup, was understandably met with anger.

You did read that correctly. Burger King created that exact campaign for the World Cup this summer, which promised free Whopper Burgers and the equivalent of $47,000 to women who get impregnated by a footballer at the World Cup.

"We apologize for the statement we made," Burger King Russia stated in a post shared to the Russian platform VK.com.

"It turned out to be too insulting. We thank you for the feedback and hasten to inform you that we have already removed all materials related to the application."

The above tweet is a screenshot of the advert obtained by website Deadspin and it translates to the following:

"Burger King, within the framework of social responsibility, has appointed a reward for girls who get pregnant from the stars of world football.

"Each will receive 3 million rubles, and a lifelong supply of Whoppers. For these girls, it will be possible to get the best football genes, and will lay down the success of the Russian national team on several generations ahead.

"Forward! We believe in you!"

This isn't the first time Burger King Russia have caused outrage with their ads, releasing the following back in 2016.

Who thought this was a good idea, seriously? Awful.
