McDonald's Pit Bull Ad Pulled After Outraging Dog Owners

McDonald's Pit Bull Ad Pulled After Outraging Dog Owners

“I believe the poster was speaking from his from experience...personal experience counts for a lot...some ppl have had negative experiences with pitbulls..as with any animal they are all different. Why can't u pitbull owners understand someones account of their personal experience with an aggressive pit is their experience..not yours. Good for you your dog is sweet and kind. I've known ppl who've had a friend with a rambunctious dog that got a little too aggressive..and I've known ppl with pets that idle and lazy...so dnt act like all pitbulls are these innocent angelic creatures..it depends on the animal and the owner..and even the most intelligent owner with a mountain of love gets surprised by their dogs sometimes”

“As someone who is educated about pits..what advice can u give ppl who live in areas where viscous pits are running loose and they are a danger to the neighborhood. Please dnt give me the "they were trained that way" speech. I know..I get it..pits in the hands of the wrong person are the problem...but now that is established..what can ppl do to protect themselves from these violently raised animals and how do we keep them out of neighborhood..if u also care about ppl u acknowledge that ppl are getting hurt and killed from strays. I've had a few close calls myself..”

“Yes..its becoming a problem and pit owners seem to be ignorant of the fact..I know their dogs may be loving well trained animals but its the stray ones that we have to be cautious about duh!”

“Also, I really care about the sweet little children in my neighborhood so I wanna protect them from the vicious dogs that were trained that way...BC in some neighborhoods it is becoming a problem..those are the dogs that worry me..not your dogs BC yours are safe to pet..perhaps. truth is animals can be unpredicatable...hence the killer whale at seaworld..that attacked the trainer. And so should we also stop calling killer whales..killer whales BC it gives them a negative stereotype..don't let your love for animals make u naive about their unpredictable nature..and yes humans are unpredictable too..”

“Well if u wanna know I do a lot of volunteer work with kids with disability..but I usually dnt boast about it to stand on moral superior high ground on the internet..but u asked. U can't view every silly joke or commercial as a personal attack on your wonderful dog...besides the ad ran in ONE city...thing that stood out for me was the line about "naming your son Sue" the line about pits didn't send me into a state of fear about pits..BC I'm a level headed person as most ppl are. pit owners get a grip..this ad hasn't caused mass hysteria against your sweet animals...however there is a problem with stray pits that needs to be addressed..and yes I know its the bad owners fault for allowing them to run loose...most ppl know the difference between a trained family pet and a stray dog. i'm never gonna approach any stray dog...and when stray pits attack it can be very fatal..so you have to atleast acknowledge where some ppls fear of pits comes from instead of stereotyping them as ignorant or hating all pits in general. my family owned dogs and we trained them well..but I've also experienced incidents involving dogs who were not trained..and yes I've had stray pits run up on me and its scary.certainly wouldn't pet it..that's common sense. I'm glad your pit is a good one”

“When actual pitbulls come on this site and rant about how this ad hurt their feelings..then I'll buy the logic that animal discrimination is the same as human discrimination...now I dnt support animal cruelty but you guys can miss me with applying discrimination.to non human animals...where are we gonna draw the line then...every animal lover is gonna start crying oh such and such ad or movie discriminates against my goldfish...or pet rat! Rats are nasty but better not say that a person with a pet rat my get their feelings hurt...get a grip pit owners. Its just a silly ad..with nuggets of truth...”

“Do rats do search and rescue, lead the blind, work as therapy for sick and elderly, or detect cancer??? Do you? My therapy dog, who is a pit, is part of my family. He makes a kid's day every day at the hospital that I'm a dr at. So yeah, I have a problem with mcdonalds or anyone else who wants to enlarge the negative stereotype my fantastic boy has! So sorry no he won't be typing this ever, but he just might be what you or one of your family members looks forward to everyday!”

“First, education or lack there of has nothing to do with a persons propensity to acquire discriminatory views and prejudice..ignorance is an equal opportunity employer. Infact highly educated ppl can be quite ignorant and offensive...now that said..I still strongly feel HUMAN discrimination is different from animal discrimination and stereotyping. As a person I can get emotionally offended and hurt hearing or experiencing a racist remark. Pitbulls can't watch commercials...now the owners got offended and they are all now very emotional...I dnt see any pits posting comments online BC their feelings got hurt..: ) but animal rights advocates risk their message constantly being derailed when they compare it to human discrimination. And not all uneducated ppl are impressionable...that is offensive!”

“My.comment was not about dog fighting ..furthermore the McDonald's ad is not even about dog fighting. I'm addressing some people on here who said this McDonald's ad is discrimination against pitbulls..and then went on to say its just like discrimination against black ppl. Absolutely absurd analogy.people dnt take kindly to whatevediscrimination they face based on the color of their skin compared to a stupid joke about a breed of dog. Ppl are not breeds! race is social construct based on skin color.human discrimination and ppl discrimination different. How would u like whatever discrimination you face bit's flawed logic. A pitbull is never gonna comprehend the McDonald ad feel offended by it. Thats the difference. But the owners of pits watch such ad and get emotional! See the difference .I could also the white man is historical savage who raped murdered many people so therefore they are dogs if you guys really wanna go there with the race game for this issue. And I recall dog fighwhite ppl were dog fighting long before black ppl in America...and no that doesn't excuse black ppl from dog f white women significantly hoarde cats. white ppl in the news more for having multiple animals in squalid conditions. some of them also abused kids physically and SEXUALLY in those filthy conditions. so dnt act like white ppl are more noble. You're more arrogant in that u villainize ppl more who don't look like you for the same sins”

“As. Black person it disturbs me that some of you are comparing this to racial discrimination against blacks! Its not the same thing! I am a person! Not a BREED! why must all these groups hijack black struggles to support their causes! I don't support animal cruelty..but I think we officially become a ridiculous society when we start talking about breed discrimination and comparing it racial discrimination ...that in itself is dehumanizing and insulting...furthermore it makes animal rights ppl look as if they are above racism

I know for sure they are not...ppl who love animals can also be cruel to ppl..next are you gonna compare this gay ppl not being allowed to marry...how about compare it to discrimination against obese ppl!?! See how absurd it becomes..but I never see these activist use other forms of discrimination to get their point across ...its always hey lets use the blacks! Stand on your own two feet and get your message together and stop this racial appropriation to your cause!”

“Its not about comparing black racism to BSL with Pits per say --well not literally anyway.
Its about generalizing a population based on stereotypical notions of that group, generated by a sensationalized media and propagated by impressionable uneducated people.”

“Comparing people to animal breeds is totally rediculous.
I know several families in different races who have brothers
and sisters who are complete opposites in behaviour and
personality.”

“Well a lot of people think that most of the people engaged in dog-fighting are people of colour. That's where the connection comes in for some. Think about it.”

“The point is Miranda looks like a big fat hipocrite..and I'm speaking as someone who was a huge fan of hers..however I have a big problem with someone who claims to be so passionate on the issue of DV being friendly towards the likes of glen Campbell now maybe its not a racial bias but she celebrated him clapping and cheering ..but said brown didn't deserve to be celebrated! Excuse me that just doesn't jive with her views!”

If a black coach was raping.those pure white kids he'd been in a jail along time.ago!!! Its an apparent double standard here! Hey how do u know brown doesnt have bipolar disorder? How exactly the hell do u know???? BS! If its a woman beating issue why the hell does Miranda condemn brown yet praise Campbell all on the same.day!? Idk maybe when brown becomes a country Singer and develops Alzheimes she'll let it go!”
