Brewery Creates First ‘Beer For Women’ And The Internet Tore Them Apart

A Czech brewery may have set out with good intentions, however, a product they have created has become the target of the full sarcastic rage of the Internet.

Aurosa released a beverage they call the first ever “beer for her.” While that was enough to land themselves in an uncomfortable situation, the company dug themselves deeper by calling the beverage a “representation of a woman’s strength and a girl’s tenderness” reports BroBible. Yep, this includes flowers, dresses, jewelry, and fancy tablecloths in nearly all of the product shots. You know, things they believed could only be associated with women.

The Internet immediately took action, blasting Aurosa on social media. Here are some shining examples.

Wonder if they’ll stick to their guns and launch this controversial brew, or if they’ll pull it and it becomes a distant memory of what we presume they believed to be a clever idea.

Here’s Why McDonald’s Pulled This Controversial ‘DAD’ Ad

A recent ad for McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwich was the center of much criticism and complaint, reports Design Taxi. The commercial features a young boy who recently lost his father through some undisclosed circumstance.

As the boy learns more and more about his late father from his mother, viewers can clearly see they are nothing alike. However, the video ends with the mother and son sitting down at a McDonald’s where she tells him the Filet-O-Fish he ordered was his father’s favorite, instilling a sense of solace in the child.

The advertisement upset many that had lost their parents, those of whom took to Twitter to share their disappointment:

 

In response to the outrage, McDonald’s has pulled the ad and apologized for it in a public statement. The fast food chain said they were simply trying to depict real, everyday people, living in good situations or bad.

This Burrito Chain Is Offending Thousands Of People With Its Name

Illegal-Petes

Pete Turner says he got his childhood nickname “Illegal Pete” thanks to his delinquent nature growing up. When he took that name and slapped it in front of his burrito chain, however, it garnered some negative attention.

AZPM reports that Illegal Pete’s, primarily based in Colorado, will open its eighth location in Tucson, AZ. The population of Tucson, a third of whom are Hispanic, aren’t too keen on the name of their new burrito spot.

A group of University of Arizona students started an online petition for Turner to change the name of his restaurant. The students, partnered with Latino activist group MECha, have already collect more than 2,000 signatures.

Essentially, they’re giving Turner the choice of changing the name or facing a “full-scale boycott” of his burrito empire.

Turner insists that the name of his restaurant hails from him and his father, also named Pete, being “lawbreakers” and “hell raisers” in their youth. The students and activists, however, believe that Turner is using the connotations of the name to create a clever brand and profit from racism and ignorance.

Currently, Turner has no plans to change the name of his restaurants.

Ben & Jerry's: Hubby Hubby Ice Cream

ben-jerrys-hubby-hubby

Marking the legalization of same-sex marriages in Vermont, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream company temporarily changed the name of its popular “Chubby Hubby” ice cream to “Hubby Hubby” for the month of September. In partnership with Freedom to Marry, a marriage equality group, Ben & Jerry’s renaming of the ice cream “aims to raise awareness of the importance of marriage equality and to encourage other states to follow the blazing trails of Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, and Maine.” As for now, this new “Hubby Hubby” ice cream is only sold in Vermont for the rest of this month, and for those unfamiliar, it’s made up of fudge covered peanut butter filled pretzels in vanilla malt ice cream, rippled with fudge and peanut butter. Sounds delicious. What do you think? (Thx TheStew)
