Burger King gets flame-broiled for jumping into Russell Brand controversy

Fast food giant Burger King could be about to get flame-broiled after it jumped into the effort to cancel Russell Brand when it pulled ads from Rumble, a video-sharing platform that is under intense pressure to comply with the left-wing lynch mob.

The British comic and social commentator has been accused of inappropriate sexual conduct by a number of women who allege he sexually assaulted them years ago, allegations that Brand has denied but have given Big Tech and the anti-free speech left the perfect excuse to remove a critic with name recognition and a large audience from the playing field.

The news broke that the “Home of the Whopper” had complied with the demands of a left-wing censorship group and removed their ads from one of the platforms that still allows the free exchange of ideas deemed dangerous to the corrupt establishment when the activist organization The News Movement gloated that they were the ones responsible for Burger King’s move.

Now it’s Burger King that may be canceled, at least by customers who learned of their power to fight back with recent successful boycotts of Bud Light and Target that cost the companies billions for going “woke” and the word was put out by conservative social media influencers including former Fox News host Dan Bongino.

“Burger King wants you to ‘have it your way.’ Who knew their ‘way’ was wokeism, censorship & cancel culture. Their burgers are sh*t any way. Spend your money wisely,” Bongino posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Turning Point USA founder and conservative commentator Charlie Kirk also took to X to urge people to boycott the fast food fascism. 

“Burger King has pulled its ads from Rumble because the free speech platform refuses to play judge, jury, and executioner of Russell Brand after the UK Governor demanded the platform demonetize him. Reminder, Brand has not been convicted of a single crime,” Kirk wrote. “Boycott
@BurgerKing. They hate free speech and due process, and their food is poison anyways. Stop eating it.”

More piping-hot reactions to Burger King’s taking political sides were served up by X users.

‘Massive brands including Burger King, ASOS, London’s Barbican centre and Hello Fresh have pulled advertising from Russell Brand’s Rumble channel, The News Movement can reveal,” the News Movement said on its website. “Burger King has paused advertising on Brand’s channel while broadcasters and police look at claims of rape and sexual assault against him.”
