    Burger King apologizes for 'offensive' hamburger offer
    The Associated Press, Jun 20 2018 10:51 AM

    Burger King says it's sorry for offering a lifetime supply of Whoppers to Russian women who get impregnated by World Cup players. Critics assailed the offer, announced on Russian social media, as sexist and demeaning. The announcement was removed Tuesday from Burger King's social media accounts but is still circulating among Russian social network users. It promised the reward to women who get "the best football genes" and "ensure the success of the Russian team for generations to come."

    The fast food company posted a Russian-language statement on local network VKontakte saying, "We offer apologies for the announcement we made. It was too offensive." The company did not respond to requests from The Associated Press for comment.
