I believe that the new commercials that contain the idea to 'off the king' are awful. They convey to children that it is ok to commit violent acts which is bad enough but on this commercial it is for a trivial reason. They are just children and they can't always decide what is supposed to be just a funny commercial. We can choose what we have our children watch but we cannot choose what kind of commercials pop up while they are watching TV. I believe they need to be stopped immediately since we cannot control that part of TV viewing for our kids.

    I agree. The Burger King commercial should be pulled from airwaves. It is extremely irresponsible of this company to have a child's major role model (their mother) involved in trying to murder someone. They should not be promoting violence. I will not support such a company and I hope that their sales go way down until they show better judgment.

    i am guessing that you dont let your kids watch tv at all? this is ridiculous. maybe i'm immune to violence from seeing so much of it on tv, but to be opposed to this commercial is funny!

    The "King" commercial with the "square pants" dancing and reference to "bootie" is appaling. We will not let our granddaugher watch the commercial no will we take her to burger king for her "special meals". We will do business with McDonalds.

    Burger king always has controversial commercials. They have one where a very sexy lady appears to be horny for a sandwich...not appropriate 4 kids, either.
