McDonald’s pit bull-McBites ad ran in Kansas City

From the facepalm department, McDonald’s has pulled a bizarre ad that “said eating a Chicken McBite was less risky than petting a stray pit bull, shaving your head, naming your son Sue or giving friends your Facebook password. It enraged pit bull owners and their supporters.” (via Washington Post)

Well shit. I hope eating a McBite is safer than any of those things, and most things in general.

The Post, again:

The radio ad for Chicken McBites only ran for a few days in the Kansas City area before the complaints started. The campaign against the ad circulated on social media sites, and the apology was delivered the same way. People who called a well-publicized toll-free number got a recorded apology.
