Hardee's Commercialdisgusting commercial

Im apaulled by the new Hardee's commercial with the woman that the drive in. Please remove it from daytime television as it is inappropriate for family viewing! Not to mention the commercial late last year about the new Turkey in town.

    Leaving things out of orders and not wanting to fill orders an hour before quiting time. Ignoring phone calls. I was once an employee of Hardees and was required to fill orders,till closing time. How can you be closed, when your closing time was an hour away. I sent my husband to make a order,which was partially refused, at 10:00 pm on saturday night.

    about 7 years ago, a young man named Brian ran the hardees on w. 192, he mmoved to okoee and this one went under due to lack of service and quality. we drove to ocoee just to eat at hardees where he went and it was good. 30 miles one way. now there is this one open in kissimmee, buena venture lakes and if it keeps going the way its going, it too, will be closed. we went this morning and it took 20 minutes to get a biscuit/gray and bacon, egg, cheese sandwich. the manager there was doing all the fixing and one girl at the counter. 9 people in line, like i said, mine took 20 minutes. the other 8 were behind me still waiting when we left. not good folks. people like hardees, but the service has to get better or they wont come to visit. good luck and thanks for at least the good biscuits.

    I completely agree. I was watching a program with my 6 yr old when it came on and was completely disgusted. Commercials like that should only be aired late night.

    If you take that commercial off you will have to take off half of daytime tv. You have jerry springer types of shows and soap operas which are worse so stop complaining over a 30 second commercial.

    The commercial is inappropriate for day time tv. You can control stations that children watch, but you can't control commercials. The commercial is to sell Hamburgers, not sex. Disgusting!

    This commercial is really too suggestive, actually graphic. The commercial is not only inappropriate for young children, but also for teenagers. I am a high school teacher and these kids are already saturated with sexual images. Possibly the point of this commercial is to get everyone talking about it and even that may promote the company's product. Give me good old dog or cat commercials!

    I can't even sit down with my family and having a good time without that coming across the television, and making everyone uncomfortable. We are all adults, and I don't think that it is bad for people who WANT to see it, but it shouldn't be aired during the day, and I think it should only be aired on adult stations like spike tv, comedy central, adult swim. etc. Since they are a fast food restaurant, i think that is is VERY unprofessional to put a suggestive commercial like that to advertise a damn burger. I wish I could choose which commercials come across my television screen.

    I think that ppl are looking more at the breasts and not even paying attention to what the advertisement is. Pretty ridiculous that filth like that can be aired but not graphic texting commercials that ppl need to see. As far as Jerry Springer like shows, ppl choose to watch that, but u can't choose what commercial comes on when ur watching normal TV with ur family. I could understand late night dating commercials but come on, what happened to common sense and values.

    Was at Hardees on 6/21. Order Ham and Cheese combo and Thickburger combo.Also the burgers that was 2 for 3.50. Told them I did not want the A1. Wanted ketsup and mustard instead. Was told I could not get it without the A1 sauce. This sandwichs was for my grand daughter who does not eat. A1. The cashier whos name is Lucy wanted to argue with me about the sandwichs. I told her I would pay regular price for the hamburger. My husband said he would contact you about the problem. Them they where so busy talking in the back that the gentleman ahead of me order was messed up and also our order. I do not know why it was so warm in there, I guess the air conditioner was out which was to bad to eat, because where we where sitting under the vent felt like cool air off and on. But when we finally got our food and started to eat, the Nats came. We just got our food up and left. The food at Hardees was good, I am very disappointed in the service. My husband is a Pastor and we eat out while traveling quiet a bit. Worst service we have ever had at a Hardees. Would like a call .[protected].

    I saw the new hardee's commercial yesterday evening during prime time and was completely and totally disgusted with what I saw. I have vowed to NEVER eat there again, if they have to resort to junk like that to sale their food then it's not worth eating. The commericasl have been raunchy in the past but they created a new low!

    I have been fighting Hardee's for years to get them to remove those vulgar commercials. I emailed them just recently about the '"Memphis Burger" commercial and they informed me that their commercials are not really for advertising food, they are shooting them for "ENTERTAINMENT" for the family! I say we boycott them altogether! Show them they can't continue putting soft porn on the air for their pleasure!

    (Soft core porn.)It is a problem when anything or anyone goes out of their way to give my boyfriend an erection.I think sex and sexualized things should be kept between us, that is my personal opinion. I am just sick of watching tv and all of a sudden, some [censored] is trying to seduce my bf...I am not a prude, but it is exhausting. For the same reason I wouldn't want my bf watching some [censored]s acting that way in real life.There is no difference to me at least. I also agree it is inappropriate for kids, but my hatred is for the fact that there is ALWAYS tits and ### flying in my bfs face when we are trying to relax while watching otherwise harmless shows.It is ridiculous that I have to watch jiggly implants for A BURGER in a restaurant that isn't even close to my area.It looks gross and even if I looked at it sexually (for its intended purpose) it is still gross. I am starting to DREAD commercials.SO apparently those burgers cause orgasms, would it be ok to masturbate in the restaurant? If that wouldn't be allowed in the restaurant then I must have missed the message. WOULD THEY HAVE MORALS THEN??BTW, IF THEY WOULDN'T WANT PEOPLE WHACKING IT OFF IN THEIR RESTAURANT, WOULD IT BE SO HARD TO BELIEVE WE DON'T WANT THEIR [censored]S IN OUR LIVING ROOMS? IS IT REALLY MORE IMPORTANT TO MAKE PENISES GROW INSTEAD OF YOUR BUSINESS? GET YOUR PRIORITIES IN LINE BECAUSE I DOUBT IT'S HELPING YOUR BUSINESS AT ALL..YOU CAN KEEP YOUR ARTERY CLOGGING SLOP BALLS, THEY ARE MADE SO CARELESSLY THAT THE SAUCE IS FLYING ON TITTIES. THATS UNSANITURRY. (written by an "attractive", fit, 25 year old female, self esteem in tact, as well as sense of humor. I meant everything I said and I am not jealous of those glossy muppets.That is all.

    these commercials should be banned or placed on the porn channel where ppl are actually into that stuff. it shouldnt be on the local tv station for everyone to see. And I think movies with strippers &/or boobs in them should be rated as nudity, not just sexual content. what is wrong with this world?

    I agree. I just emailed them as well. I have three children (two boys and a girl) they are ages 2-10. I am DISGUSTED that they have to see this while we are watching MeTV FAMILY PROGRAMS! This is showing our daughter that this is the acceptable and desirable way for women to act/dress. It is showing our boys that it is ok for a female to prance around like a half dressed [censored]. I do not know what steps must be taken for these commercials to be taken off of television (possibly not even entirely, but most definitely off of day time / family oriented channels), but it needs to happen. -This is coming from a young, emotionally secure, fit, highly attractive woman, just so there is not a confusion of my fed up disgusted-ness with some type of self esteem issue.

    I was employed by Hardee's since October. I started as a biscuit maker and worked up to Assistant Manager. I was patient with this company through everything. I sat in the parking lot waiting for General Manager to show up. Longest wait was 5 hours. I was paid for these hours nor a bunch of other hours owed. My father in law passed away in February o 2014. I took 3 days off for grieving and upon my return work I was let go. I'm still waiting for a total of 45 hours of pay since November. I'm very disappointed that I'm writing this and I'm going to have to take legal action due to corporate not wanting to return any of my calls. SO MUCH FOR OPEN DOOR POLICY! If this is happening to me, I would like to know how many other "employees" have been treated this way. Let's see if I get a response now. Next is getting papers together with my lawyer!

    I'm sure this complaint will probably never make a difference but I feel it's my Christian duty to express my opinion. The tv adds you run are extremely sexist to the point of vulgar. You ought to be ashamed if how you try to exploit sex while trying to sell your food products. I will not buy food from y'all again and I will try to boycott and get others to boycott with me until you no longer use such trash in your commercials. There are children watching these adds and they are not appropriate to be seen by them. There is enough trash on tv in shows to not have to watch it in commericals. Thank you for your attention. As I said before, I sure this will never amount to anything much less even be responded to

    I completely agree. Their commercials have been disgusting for a long time, but are getting worse with each new one aired. My children see this!! Do not give up everyone. Keep bothering them about it, call them, email, write a letter, whatever works. They will have to listen when their business starts to go downhill because they decided to use "pornographic entertainment" for their advertisements for burgers. It is nasty and I am furious. I am trying to watch preseason football and I have see the commercial 4 time already today!!! It is annoying and unnecessary. Get these commercials off the air Hardee's! Where is your morality?!

    I agree with all of you that the Hardee's commercials are VERY inappropiate! Satan has his way of allowing this to ruin the world and try to lure small children as well as Men who are weak and give in to temptation. I agree this should be removed because it is NOT a choice. You choose what you watch however you can't control what the commercials are going to be. And it is the Network they CAN have a saying in what is shown on their network. I myself have blocked networks because of inappropriate materials. If enough of us would do this and stand up for our Christian beliefs I think they might pay attention. There are too many people like the comments above that just give in and allow it, I don't! I don't support any shows that promote Gays, Lesbians, Sex or Nudity whether it is partial or full. Selling sex is ridiculous and low and the person or persons responsible for putting it out there will have to answer to it! I will NOT ever eat a Hardee's again :-) God Bless

    As a husband, father, and a Christian I would like like to weigh in on the Hardee's commercials. They are disrespectful and degrading to women, suggestive and pornographic to men, and inappropriate for children. A previous comment stated that we have no control over which commercials we see. True. These ads exemplify the breakdown of society and the need to return to Christian family values. They are targeting men. I'm calling on men to stand up for morality and decency. Show your childrenand your wives and your mothers and your girlfriends how we should live and lead. Turn away from sin and live courageously like Jesus. Hardee's: Stop these vile commercials and stand for families and women everywhere. George/Nashville

    As a former Hardee's employee who left because of new and tyrannical management, I sympathise completely. However, I must ask - did you inform your management that you would be off however many days due to a death in the family and do you have that in writing? Were you written up for any reason? If so, do you have copies? According to VP Ramy, if you had no write-ups, you should not have been fired. I know you wrote this several months ago so a lot may have transpired. I wish you luck in your legal attempts and hope you succeed.
