ASA says tweet condoned antisocial behaviour of throwing milkshakes at politicians
A Burger King tweet has been banned by the advertising watchdog for condoning antisocial behaviour and encouraging political protesters to “milkshake” the Brexit party leader, Nigel Farage.
In May, a day after it emerged that a McDonald’s restaurant in Edinburgh had been asked by police not to sell milkshakes because it was located within 200 metres of where Farage was to hold a rally and protesters might throw them, Burger King tweeted: “Dear people of Scotland. We’re selling milkshakes all weekend. Have fun. Love BK. #justsaying”.
