A rep for Fox tells Usmagazine.com in a statement: "Burger King Corp. [the sponsors] did not have any editorial input in the creation of the animation that ran last Sunday, and no one from Burger King Corp. approved it before it aired. Upon reflection, our poor attempt at humor was insensitive and we deeply apologize to anyone who might have been offended."

A cartoon skit airing during Fox's NFL Sunday mocked Jessica Simpson for her supposed weight gain.
Simpson, who used to date Dallas Cowboy Tony Romo, is laughed about by cartoon versions of Romo's teammates and coach.
The cartoon version of Marion Barber remarks, "Man, I still can't believe Tony dated Jessica Simpson, even after she blew up bigger than Flozell Adams!"
Cartoon Jason Witten says, "Unlike Tony, at least Jessica comes up big when it counts!"
And coach Wade Phillips adds, "Say Tony, is Jessica around? We could use a defensive tackle!"
