Carls jr commercials

Carls jr will never get any of my money again. I don't support businesses that have no respect for the family or individual. I'll give my hard earned money to In-N-Out or another decent burger place. Good-Bye Carls Jr & Hardee's!

I only use a converter box bc of the smut on cable and sattelite and STILL we are exposed to vulgarity!! I will say it has opened up the conversation of boyco
tting and protesting. They have forever lost my family's business.

Soft Porn commercials and anything related

I just want to make my voice known as well. I used to take my family to Carls Junior we really like there food we will no longer go their and give them our business because of their raunchy immoral commercials. More people and especially leaders (there seems to be very few left) need to also take a stand against this kind of debauchery and wickedness.

Carl's Junior you are a bunch of perverts end of argument it is a fact this is not an opinion.

Carl's Jr. Advertising/commercials

Well, it looks like I've had the last straw with Carl's Jr. I used to take my family regularly to have a nice sit down to enjoy a burger. But after seeing your Big Sausage commercial, I was stunned, disgusted, disappointed in myself for giving money to a corporation that cares nothing about women, children and families. After I've done some research, I've found that Carl's Jr. is pretty tight with the Porn Industry. They are receiving money from them and have a Porn agenda. So why not try to get the young children hooked, that is their goal. Your advertising is obscene, indecent, disturbing, degrading, objectifying and targeted to whomever will look including children who should not be exposed to Adult Content. And just so you know, many are outraged with this. We have recently had a large family meeting to discuss how we will be boycotting your corporation. Brothers, Sister, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, friends who have taken a sort of oath to never set food or give one damn dollar to YOU. You are pushing pornography on those innocent beings WHO DO NOT WANT THIS. Pornography is linked to violence towards women and children, destructive addiction of men and children, sex trafficking, rape, divorce, shattered relationships, prostitution, child molestation. You contribute to the ills in society, so every time one sets foot into your restaurant they are sure to be contributing as well to all the harm done towards individuals and family. Good Bye Carl's Jr. You are know now, for cheap, talentless marketing and smut. Your burgers and fries are tainted with disgust, hate and inhumanity.

Carl's Jr.

We were submitted to Hardee's latest soft porn commercial during the local evening news. I have already complained to the station manager, asking that they air a more family-friendly ad from the company (surely they have something else?). A day later they did move it to the end of the news, and then I haven't seen it again so I'm hopeful that the message got through. I had just started eating at Hardee's again when the ad aired. I refuse to take my business to a company that exploits women in this way. Apparently, they are only interested in having a certain segment of the male population as customers! It seems like poor advertising strategy if they want to appeal to the general population.

Carl's Jr. Commercials for porn

These soft porn commercials should never have been allowed to air in the first place, and it is high time someone put a foot down and stop making them. I have boycotted every product they have tried to sell in their commercials due to the filth they are trying to sell along with their burgers. Perhaps that isn't gong far enough. I will have to stop buying ANYTHING from their stores, which is sad because you have some great tasting food and great deals. After all, if they are selling filth in their commercials, I hate to think of the filth they are putting IN their food. Carl's Jr., you have just lost 6 more customers as I will no longer take my family to your restaurants.

Commercials

Someone really needs to put a stop to these ridiculous ads! How many complaints need to be made before anyone will do something about them?! When I decide i want to watch girls like these, I will go to an adult channel. Till then, while I am watching a show with my FAMILY, I would like to NOT see trash like that in the commercials! Can these companies PLEASE respect that?

Obscenity

To Whom it May Concern,
The Carl’s Jr. advertising campaign depicting women, suggestively posed, in various stages of undress is in violation of the Arizona Criminal Code §13-3501 “Obscenity” which states that content is obscene and “Harmful to minors” if:

…that quality of any description or representation, in whatever form, of nudity, sexual activity, sexual conduct, sexual excitement, or sadomasochistic abuse, when both:
(a) To the average adult applying contemporary standards with respect to what is suitable for minors , it both:
(i) Appeals to the prurient interest, when taken as a whole. In order for an item as whole to found or intended to have an appeal to the prurient interest, it is not necessary that the item be successful in arousing or exciting any particular form of prurient interest either in the hypothetical average person, in a member of its intended group and probable recipient group…
(ii) Portrays the description or representation in a patently offensive way.
(b) Taken as a whole does not have any serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value to minors.

If we are to apply these laws in spirit or word, the Carl’s Jr. advertisements are in violation of Arizona state obscenity laws and should be considered harmful to minors.

This said, WHY is no one doing anything to prevent minors from such exposure? These ads are aired on multiple networks and at all times of the day. They are offensive to women and children, and are clearly targeted for the adult, male pornography-watching “community”. If you search the internet, you will find thousands, if not tens of thousands, of complaints regarding the obscene nature of these ads. Obviously, the average adult applying contemporary standards is offended by these depictions. I want to know: Why is this form of criminal activity and obscenity being overlooked and taken as acceptable?!?

I would like to see someone enforce the obscenity laws that have been laid out by state law. Carls Jr. should be charged criminally.

Carl's Junior Texas Burger Commercial

I was watching a television program with my teenaged son and daughter last evening and saw the Carl's Junior Texas Burger commercial for the first time. I am writing this to lodge a complaint against this blatantly sexist and irresponsible form of advertising. My issue with this form of advertising is the violation of using women's bodies and women's sexuality to sell a product, in this instance hamburgers. The objectification of women's bodies in the advertising industry as well as many other industries need to end. Research has shown that for decades, such forms of objectification have led to increased dissatisfaction of women and the ways they view their bodies. This trend is becoming more alarming as girls, as young as elementary school age, are expressing their false beliefs that their value and worth in society amounts to nothing more than "sex objects". And directly associated with this dissatisfaction, is the also false belief that a woman (and teen and girl) must conform to some idealized form of beauty (read "sex object") - a personal form that in real life does not actually exist. In working to meet such an idealized form, psychologists and sociologists who work in this area are documenting unprecedented levels of depression and eating disorders amongst women, young adult women, teen women and elementary school aged girls. It is time that our society stand up to these issues and voice our anger at the continued advertising irresponsibility by corporations such as Carl's Jr. I know these advertising executives and corporate executives have daughters and wives of their own. Is this the kind of message that needs to be sent to them? Enough is enough.

Inappropriate commercials

These commercials are disgusting. As a mom to small children I am in disbelief that these commercials are on our channels at all. Someone needs to step up realize and reconsider playing them. We wonder why our children grow up and have perverted and twisted minds. It is a burger joint not a pornography. If they are not stopped for any other reason start considering the innocent eyes that are seeing it. I turn it as quickly as we can, but the times that you are not right there to do so does nothing but harm!! Whoever came up with the idea is just as disgusting!!

Carl's Jr Commercial

These commercials are extremely inappropriate. They only target the male population. What about families, children, and women? They are consumers as well and having commercials like this makes you lose out on potential customers. How stupid are you? It makes me never want to eat there again.

obscene, explicit, inappropriate advertising

These ads ONLY serve the adult, male pornography-watching "community". To the rest of the world, such as women, young women, the elderly, family oriented people, children, and adult females, they are embarrassing, inconsiderate and lewd. I hope that everyone in the above mentioned groups will boycott this perverse and chauvinistic restaurant, the company that owns it, and the TV channels that promote it. These ads are wrong. It is a crime to show children pornographic images. So why are these ads allowed on public television?? I DONT want to my young girls to see these women scantily clad, in suggestive poses, and think that's how they need to act in order to get attention. And as a woman myself, I don't care to see these ads either. They are degrading and humiliating.

Carls jr p's disgusting commercial

This commercial is disgusting !!!!! Do you know how many children, husbands and women are embarrassed when it comes into their homes. It is so demeaning to women. Your CEO should be ashamed to air suchh profane and vulgar advertisement. Are you a strip club or a family friendly establishment? We will never eat there again and we will certainly tell every one to sign a petition until this advertisement is removed.

Complain to FCC about Carls Jr Commercials

Each time you see the Carl's Jr. texas burger commercial, submit a complaint to the FCC using FCC Form 475B: Obscene, Profane, and/or Indecent Material:

http://apps.fcc.gov/cgb/fcc475B.cfm

Sometimes I can't change the channel fast enough and am insulted once again by Carl's Jr's insensitivity toward unsolicited "Obscene, Profane, and/or Indecent Material," so I file a complaint. I've been unlucky enough to file several complaints a day for this commercial. It airs after every inning on baseball sports stations.

Let's flood the FCC and demand that Carl's Jr. only air the commercial after midnight. Submit the form each time it interrupts your comfort zone.

Carls Jr

Your television advertisement sends a message about half the population that is offensive, demeaning, and completely inappropriate. Do none of the people in power in these companies have intelligent self-respecting women in their lives to help educate them about how to behave in 2014? Will never eat at Carls Jr., nor will my children, my parents, or my friends.

Carls Jr offensive commerical

I am so tired of sitting down and watching a show with my husband and grandkids & a very offensive tv commercial like this comes on. It's sad that the people writing these commercials are not smart enough to actually write a ad that will help promote their product. All they can think of is trying to sell their product by selling sex. We will never go to their burger joint, and we will never buy food or say a positive thing about this restaurant. Please take this ad off all networks, and show respect to women, and the young children who are the future. We need children to grow up with values that respect others, not degrade them. We are so tired of seeing smut on tv. And espically when you are watching a family show.

Carl's Jr offensive commercials

I have had enough, clearly Car's Jr. care nothing for women, with their sexual abusive and offensive commercials. Can we sue because I am disgusted with these practically nude scenes and if this is okay then what will appear next. Does Carl's Jr. have no moral standards or respect for women and families? Who is in charge of these commercials? Who allows them?

Absolutely appalled at Carls Jr commercial

Literally shocked at the Carls Jr. Commercial. How can such filth and porn be shown in a commercial for a family fast food chain. Why is this happening right in our homes during prime time t.v. Or any time for that matter. Will never eat there again and will spread the word to boycott.
