Fast food giant Burger King is showing its support for Gay Pride by repackaging its signature Whopper sandwich in rainbow colored wrappers that reads "We are all the same inside."
The $4.29 gay-friendly 'Proud Whopper' sandwich is being offered at one San Francisco area Burger King franchise on Market Street through Thursday.
"It showcases who we are as a brand," Fernando Machado, said senior vice president of global brand management at Burger King, in an interview with USA Today. "It shows how we, as a brand, believe in self-expression."
Proceeds from the sales of the Proud Whopper will be donated to scholarships for LGBT high school seniors graduating in 2015.
Meanwhile, 2 Chase Bank employees are objecting to a controversial internal survey that questions their loyalty to the gay community.
After legal bloggers expressed their doubts about the survey, a second Chase employee came forward to confirm the validity of the Chase Bank survey that asked employees if they were "an ally of the LGBT community."
A Chase employee who asked to remain anonymous told Mirror of Justice that he feared for his job if he said no to the question or if he left the question blank.
"This survey wasn't anonymous. You had to enter your employee ID," the man wrote in the email.
The email continued:
With the way things are going and the fact that LGBT rights are being viewed as pretty much tantamount to the civil rights movement of the mid 50s to late 60s, not selecting that option is essentially saying "I'm not an ally of civil rights;" which is a vague way to say "I'm a bigot." The worry among many of us is that those who didn't select that poorly placed, irrelevant option will be placed on the "you can fire these people first" list.
