Carl Jrs advertising

I find their ads disgusting and the suggestive nature only depicts a complete lack of morality and their effort to encourage such behavior. I would never go to their restaurants as I would never want them to benefit from their even attracting my attention with such a flagrant lack of good taste. If they can't get peoples attention without this kind of promotions they need to hang it up. It shows what kind of people they are at heart to even want to display their ads.

Dear Carl's Jr
You have a history for Sexiest, perverted and objectifying commercials. I have not eating at your establishment in a long time prices do not match my budget. My bother, my best friend and I All hate your Disgusting commercials. Breasts, big breasts in bikinis. Let me ask you this do you have a daughter would you like her to be pouring barbecue sauce all over her boobs on TV? I hope not, so why do you do this? Please stop! Women are human they are not sex on legs so don't treat them like that. For god's sake you are a hamburger restaurant not a porn studio.

Carl's Jr commercials should stop immediately

The definitely in appropriate and sexually explicit Carl's Jr ads need to be stopped. The use of trashy half naked women to sell food is disgusting and pathetic. And their new commercial about joining the mile high club is even worse. Apparently Carl's Jr doesn't care about children or what they may see or hear when viewing basic cable that should be appropriate for all ages. I complained to Carl's Jr directly and all they said was sorry it offends you but the owner and franchisor of Carl's Jr adopts a "creative approach to our advertising." Basically, they don't care about us because apparently sex sells food?!?! I complained to my cable provider as well and they told me they just provide the service and have no control of commercials or their content.

Sexist and disgusting ads

The ads you play are disgusting. Stop objecting women and trying to use sex as a way to sell your foods. Whenever I see these sexist ads I am reminded of why I stopped eating at your restaraunt. STOP using women to sell food. It is unnecessary and infuriating that you think this is acceptable to sell food. Listen to your consumers! No one wants to watch the sexist ads!

To Whom it may concern,

Your semi-pornographic ad campaign that you are currently using to sell hamburgers (burgers I might otherwise be inclined to eat) is absolutely disgusting. I understand that my moral sensibilities are of no consequence to how you operate your business and how you choose to make your money. I also understand that you stand to benefit from the unhappiness of people like myself and any attention we might bring your way as a result of our dissatisfaction.

I will keep my points as straight forward as possible:

1. I will never be eating at your restaurant again.

2. I would like whoever is responsible for creating and approving of this ad campaign to sit and watch these delightful little segments with their small children and grandchildren. Do this over and over again. Now please simply tell me how that makes you feel. Honestly. Because this is what I have to do when I am trying to watch a football game with my children and it makes me feel like garbage. Watch those commercials with your ten year old daughter and tell me if it doesn't make you feel the same.

Thank you for your time.

carl jr/hardee's commercials

Really this is the best you can do? I'm a guy and can't believe how distasteful your commercials are! Not even worth the capital lettering in your name. As a business owner, knowing a commercial offended patrons I really would think twice before I would continue. Its apparent you do not care about the general pubic. We will boycott your establishments as well spread the word.
The food is as distasteful as the advertisements.

Hardees offensive adds

Being a woman and a mom of 4 boys I find your ads for Hardees absolutely sexist, disgusting, demeaning and totally inappropriately. I also know that you do not care. My family does not eat at Hardees for the burgers because they are really not that good but have gone to Hardees for breakfast for the biscuits but that will no longer happen. Because of your commercials we will go to either McDonalds or Chickfilet. My husband and I are raising our boys to respect women and treat them as God intends them to and not to exploit them and degrade them as Hardees does for the sale of a stupid hamburger. You have your right to make these disgusting commercials but we also have the right to not give you our money and will be choosing to go elsewhere until you realize that sex is not needed or wanted to sale a lousy burger, biscuit, or shake.

Recent Commercials

Great commercials! The object of commercials is to catch the audiences attention, feature the product, and have the public remember your company and product afterward. Done, done, and done. Keep making good burgers & commercials. For every complainer there are hundreds of patrons.

Carl's Jr: Disgusting Desperation

Let's face it: Carl's Jr will never be considered a competitor of major chains like McDonalds, Burger King, Chick-Fil-A, etc. It seems as though this realization wasn't taken easy by Carl's Jr marketing directors. Despite the company's pathetic attempt to appeal to an obvious demographic, they fall short in more ways than one. If we're being honest, that statement is probably not the first time executives have heard it. The commercial crosses what's appropriate, violates viewership which includes children, and is flat-out degrading to women and families. But on the bright side, Carl's Jr. greasy, disgusting, and cheap food now seems symbolic of the morons that chose this marketing direction. Who knows, maybe that's what they were going for: self-revelation. "We'll never look like that, land a girl like that, and we'll never be competitive in the major market, so let's lose a majority of our customer-base!" Brilliant job Carl's Jr. I look forward to seeing your quarterly earnings report. You, however, should not be looking forward to it.

"Join the Mile High Club"???

I was watching the morning news show while getting ready for work. The new Carl's Jr. ad came on staring a stewardess dressed less than any woman I've seen on a flight, and the words "Join the Mile High Club" are said and pasted across the screen while she is removing the scarf from her neck. What the heck does that have to do with a burger? Really? You justify it by adding "bacon stacked a mile high" on your "made for tv burger" that looks nothing like what you serve??

Really disgusting.

Carl's JR commercials

If I were to come into your restaurant and present myself, mostly naked and act disgustingly sexual while eating a burger and drinking soda like your commercials, would you throw me out??? I betting that you would! Who's with me on this?

Carl's Jr. Commercial

Objectifying women in order to sell a burger is disgusting. I just filed a complaint with the FCC and encourage others to do so too.

Harmful advertising by Carls Jr

Please, please discontinue the ads objectifying woman. Your ad appears during programming that would otherwise be okay for my teenage son to view. Please. Remove these ads.

soft porn commercial

Carls Jr commercials are embarrassing and trashy. They put down women and make boys and men look at women in the wrong way. I will not take my children or family members to Carls Jr. They need to change the commercials to something family friendly before we will go back there.

Carl's Jr. Burgers

Your burger commercials are very offensive!!
If you have to use porn to attract customers, it doesn't say much about your food.
I will never eat at your restaurant and I will discourage other's from eating there also!
I hate to be watching a program with my family and your trashy commercials come on.
Shame on you!!

Shameful Commercials

Shame on you for dehumanizing women in your soft porn ads! My family and friends will no longer eat at Carl's. We like the food, but will sacrifice this for this moral stand.

Change your ad campaigns. No one should have to watch trashy ads. These are humiliating to women and morally wrong. No more Famous Stars for us!

Explicit Commericials

I watch the news in the morning and all of the sudden your nasty commercial comes on airing a barely dressed woman "eating a burger". It's disgusting. I'm horrified. I'm even more surprised this passed for airing.
Not only is this a horrible portrayal of the truth, we all know that women who are that thin do not eat a 2400 calorie burger, but it's blatant message to everyone watching that you are really trying to sell sex and there is nothing sexy with this commercial at all. I do not eat your food. Nor, by sending this type of message, will this EVER change my mind to eat your food. It's morally wrong to make a commercial like this and expose women like this.
Stop it! Shame on you.

Carls Jr ads

Ever since your ads came out with the pornographic woman eating your food, I've never eaten at a Carl's Jr. since, and neither will my family. Your ads are a disgrace to woman and have nothing to do with food. Shame on you for degrading woman. And shame on your for thinking that your ad would somehow convince people to eat there. The men I know in my life wouldn't support you either, they are many steps above supporting the gutter ads you have. I hope others will stand up for woman by not eating at Carls Jr. I don't care how good your food is or how great a price. It's never an option to eat there now.Clean it up boys.

Latest sleezy soft porn ad from Carl's Jr.

I'm really tired of having to see the fake tan booby model have orgasms over a Carl's Jr. hamburger. I especially notice them during Dodger games during prime time when kids are watching. Wasn't the Carl who owned CArl's Jr a conservative Christian dude at one time. Well, he's come a long way, but unfortunately in the wrong direction. Won't be eating at Carl's anymore.

Carls jr

No one should be subject to having raunchy commercials enter their home. And it really makes Carls Jr. look foolish and desperate to stoop to such a degrading level in order to sell food. Don't care what food they offer, the Carls Jr. ads leave a disgusting taste in my mouth!

I've been reading all the articles lately about people upset about the Carl's Jr. ads. Since we don't watch TV, I wasn't entirely sure what they were referring to, but even thinking back to the commercials I've seen in years past I knew in general what types of ads the restaurant is known for. Over the weekend I met up with a friend for lunch and we were considering taking both our families to Carl's Jr., but after reading about the ads I suggested instead that we go to Chik-fil-a across the street. So, that's what we did. Then, I got to thinking that I shouldn't totally boycott Carl's Jr. without even knowing for sure how "bad" these commercials really are. Maybe people are just overreacting. So, I found some on youtube and made my own final conclusion. DISGUSTING. I can't believe one of my favorite burger joints has stooped so low. Count me out... unless you listen and make some changes, we will never go to Carl's Jr. ever again. I'm especially disturbed by reading that the original owner of the company would have been totally against this kind of moral decay to infect his company. I hope you feel the affect of losing money from people like me and it wakes you up to the realization that what you're doing is not worth it. Either way, it isn't worth it to me to support you with my money.

Offensive Carls Jr. commercials

I can't express how frustrating it is that these offensive, pornographic ads are allowed to air. This is a burger joint, not a strip club and families should be able to watch TV without having such images and demeaning messages coming into their homes. Please move these adult ads to adult late night hours where they will not offend our children.
