Horrible Company Values

As an update Carl's Jr. has done away with its slutty burger ads, and now are trying to play it off as Carl Je did that while Carl Sr was away. I think it's just BS now that they're trying to down play it publically. Their name is completely soiled to me. I will NEVER eat there regardless of how much time has passed because I know at one point they were profiting off of objectifying women and by squeezing that filth into our childrens minds. Carl's Jr. And Hardee's are full of disgusting, sexist pigs that should burn in hell.

Children

m beyond tired of having these slutty, raunchy Carls Jr ads shoved in my family's and my face...I have 3 young children at home and throughout the years have had to either have them advert their eyes when your disgusting and perverse Carls Jr ads would come on, or I would have to turn channel. My husband even turns the channel when the kids aren't even home. With this new threesome burger ad, my husband and I have made the decision to cancel our cable subscription all together. It's not worth it. No parent should have to monitor channels considered family friendly, such as TBS, not because of the shows that are on, BUT BECAUSE OF THE SLEAZY COMMERCIALS. It's sad really that a fast food chain has to demoralize women to sell their food. McDonalds makes millions more than Carls Jr, yet I've never seen them stoop even near the level that Carls Jr does to sell their product. We have not been to a Carls Jr restaurant for many years because of this, and now are taking measures to eliminate this unwanted and violating filth from entering our home. Absolutely disgusting.

Children

It's clear after reading all of these complaints that the company and CEO are nothing but childish immature boys who will never grow into men. Women don't look like that and you are setting unrealistic expectations for boys and hurting little girls self esteem in the future. Grow a set and man up and actually set a good example by not having half naked sexdriven commercials. Nobody even likes your food and your commercials just make me want to barf. Grow up.

Carls Jr OVERLY SWEET burgers

Your burgers used to be the best in town. Now they don't even taste like hamburgers. Fried hot dogs and potato chips in a burger? Oh, but wait lets throw some gas station cheese on top of that too! If you aren't slopping syrupy sweet sauce on it at every opportunity, you are throwing sweet pickles in it and then using a hamburger bun that has so much sugar in it, it tastes like you are eating a burger on a donut!. Burgers should not be sweet!. Your ketchup is super sweet, Your bbq sauce is overly sweet, your pulled pork in sugar sauce is overly sweet, your bourbon sauce is overly sweet....etc. Its getting out of hand. Whats with the new buns? Does someone honestly think that people need their hamburgers to taste like dessert? Its like whoever is coming up with these ideas has a toddler pallet and is a sugar addict. Nothing ruins a good burger faster than sweet pickles, sweet ketchup, sweet bbq sauce and sweet buns...all on the same burger. You have become the laughing stock of the burger world and now the only people that are eating your food are the stoners with the munchies, sitting at home getting off on your disgusting sexist and entirely inappropriate commercials. Its almost like its being done on purpose. "let see how many different syrupy goopy flavors we can pile on this burger and as long as its "big and sweet and gooey" they'll eat it. We now travel 20 miles out of town to eat at Red Robin. As for the commercials....someone in your advertising dept, or whoever is in control over what is shown has some serious psychological issues. Hate women much? Lets demoralize them on TV. I can't imagine any female ever feeling good about herself while working at your company knowing how you devalue them.

You are ruining and reinforcing the evil in our society

Dear Carl's Jr. standard beef "company",
I hate you. You are teaching and reinforcing in our nation how the hypersexualization of women is ok and good and normal. Sex is not bad. Women controlling their sexuality is not bad. However, my enemies, this is hypersexualization and it is not fair that the public has no control over the content they watch. This is too much. You need to think about the consequences. You are making little girls sick and little boys perverts. Be responsible. Think of the impact you actually could have.

Stop complaining about their commercials

They're real problem is that if you order a burger that's discountinged they just give you another one with telling you. This has happened multiple times. STOP LYING TO YOUR CUSTOMERS

Commercial about Partial Birth Abortion

There is a commercial against Russ Feingold that talks about dismembering baby bodies. I know the shock factor that they are after, but they have completely crossed the line! I have seen the commercial several times now at all times of the day. I teach 2nd graders and I can just imagine one of them running to their parents crying, "Mommy, Daddy, did you hear they are cutting babies heads, arms and legs off!!" The commercial is disgusting (and I know that's their intent), but in my opinion it's a terribly inappropriate way to try and get their message across and should be CENSORED! If it absolutely has to be shown it should not be before 8:00 P.M!

Commercials

I agree with complaints about the latest commercials. Don't want my kids to watch those women in their attire nor how they eat their burgers, nor do I want to watch. I won't be eating at Carls again. Give me a break, GUYS!

Degrading Women

If you want to sell food stop showing these degrading commercials. Because until then my family and I will not be eating at your restaurants anymore. And I encourage anyone else who is tired of seeing these commercials on local stations to stop eating at this restaurant chain. You may enjoy your commercials and the response you get, but I don't care for my family or me will never eat at your restaurants until you stop airing these commercials.

Stupid carls jr adds

The last couple adds were ok. They actually put clothing on the girl! I thought things were turning around for a change! I was surprised but not for long. I was soon let down by this recent three way commercial.... I don't understand it. You know these attention loving girls don't even step foot in a carls jr let alone take a bite out of a calorie/fat dripping infested burger like the bacon three way. THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO ADVERTISE JUST SAYING. I am a 20 year old woman and I don't appreciate being objectified as I am sitting in a carls jr eating my burger. That has happened to me before by a table full of jerks sitting across from me. Everytime I took a bite they'd all stop and stair which made me way uncomfortable THANKS TO YOUR COMMERCIALS I had the most unsettling feeling as if these guys were getting dinner and a show out of me. This is bs man. Someone should really put an end to thsee mind diluting adds :(

Commercials

I am also disgusted at Carl's Jr's choice in advertising. Do their marketers not care that there are families watching the Olympics? I understand that tv ads are not always appropriate but Carl's Jr has crwossed the line. I will never set foot in an establishment who is uncaring and inconsiderate of families. As other has said, also Carl's Jr poor, poor choice in portraying women is sickening. So disappointing.

Carl's Jr Commercials

I'm deeply concerned about this company's portrayal of women. They are adding to violence against and subjugation of women. Do these advertisers have wives and daughters they go home to? If a campaign rises against these Carl's Jr. advertisements, I will surely support it. I used to love going to Carl's Jr. When I was a kid. It's obvious this company does not care about me, my well be ing or the emotional health and well being of our nation's daughters and sons.

Hardee's commercial

I have not been a customer at Hardee's for several years because of previous commercials. This latest one tops them all as being lewd and seductive. I would not let women like this in the door of my home and certainly not on any tv channel that I watch. Stop it, Hardees!! Your food is not your problem. Your problem is the advertising.

Disgusting commercials

Your commercials are offensive to women. The most recent bacon commercial is disgusting and degrading to women. You exploit these women to sell your food. Mc Donalds makes millions and have never dehumanized women in order to sell their food. As a woman and an american citizen I ask that this commercial be removed. My family and I will no longer support Carls Jr until these commercials are stopped.

inappropriate tv commercial

Suggest the best way to get the offensive Carl's Jr commercials off the air is to stop watching the TV channels that advertise it - change the channel and let the stations know we won't tolerate. Not enough to just boycott Carl's - their commercials are getting worse, not better.

Inappropriate commercial

The 3 way burger ad by Carl's Jr. is beyond inappropriate. I can't believe the Federal Communication Commission hasn't stepped in.
I'm no prude, but this is inappropriate for general public viewing.

Inappropriate

I have not eaten at Hardee's since these commercials started. What makes you think we want to see sluts eating hamburgers? If you can't sell your food without them, then it must not be very good.

Inappropriate commercials

This is not what we need to see to eat at Carl's Jr.
It doesn't matter what age the audience is. It's just inappropriate for the type of commercial.
Please stop them.

Carl's Jr Raunchy Ads

Just saw the new Carl's Jr ad. How disgusting. We have not been to Carl's since they began having x-rated commercials. What a bunch of idiots.
