FOX aired a 60-second cartoon skit during the “FOX NFL Sunday” pre-game coverage this weekend, sponsored by Burger King, that was intended to make fun of Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys season last year. Every dig on Tony Romo however ended up being a Jessica Simpson fat joke.
Watch the video below. For some reason, this choppy version is the only one that can be found online.
Isn’t it strange that a greasy fast-food restaurant would be making fat jokes? Let’s forget for a second that Jessica Simpson isn’t even overweight to begin with and the fact that she and Tony Romo are no longer together. The joke’s aren’t effective, especially coming from a company who significantly contributes to obesity in America. Way to understand your audience, Burger King.
Despite the skit being “presented by Burger King”, they claim that FOX produced it and that they were not involved in developing the content. Regardless, their name is attached to it and it is pissing a lot of people off.
