Burger King Russia Demands 'It' Ban, Claiming Pennywise Looks Like Ronald McDonald

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Burger King`s Russian division has filed a complaint with the countrys Federal Anti-Monopoly Service (FAS), demanding that the movie It be banned in the country.

The company claimed that the movie`s clown character Pennywise looks like Ronald McDonald and therefore works as an advertisement for the rival fast-food brand."

The Hollywood Reporter

The executives of Burger King`s Russian division must be drunk on vodka, how is the fact that Ronald McDonald bears a vague resemblance to Pennywise, the psycho clown who kills young children, positive publicity for McDonald`s?

People all over the world, especially children, hate clowns, McDonald`s would be well-advised to ditch Ronald McDonald in favor of a mascot who doesn`t elicit revulsion.

While we`re on the subject of fast food mascots, I don`t think anybody would disagree with me that the Burger King Mascot, The Burger King is much creepier than Ronald McDonald.

The only thing more disgusting than The Burger King and Ronald McDonald is the greasy calorie-laden food available at these fast food giants.
