Jessica Simpson gets apology from FOX/Burger King

By: The Superficial / October 15, 2009

FOX and Burger King have issued a joint apology for a FOX NFL Sunday sketch that mocked Jessica Simpson’s weight this past Sunday. Us Magazine reports:

A rep for Fox tells Usmagazine.com in a statement: “Burger King Corp. 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.”
Burger King adds: “Burger King Corp. has a long-standing relationship with FOX Sports, as well as an extensive media partnership with the network. The specific content for this sketch involving Jessica Simpson was not developed or aired by BKC or any of its agencies.”

Of course, Burger King isn’t completely out of the clear on this one because every time I made fun of Jessica Simpson’s weight, I was eating a Whopper. You bastards, how could you?!
