Seeing this ad made me livid with anger! Why would McDonalds compare eating their stupid nuggets to petting a pit bull?? Pit bulls are much safer than nuggets which will clog your arteries and give you a heart attack. Please sign for them to get rid of...

I know mc.d's has apologized, but before I give them another cent, I want to see a pit bull in their ads portrayed in a POSITIVE light. That is the only way to make this right.

#86, TU. Petting a pit bull is definitely safer than eating any of McD's food.

Noted and signing. There are two ways to look at this--stop and think about it. Petting the pit bull is much safer than eating at McDonalds which I do not do anyway-so spread it around and let people know that McDonalds is trying to tell everyone that petting the pit bull is safer so stop eating here. Blessings to all

Pit Bulls are darling! They love me and I love on them. I meet them when I'm out walking.
It was really funny this time, over at Frys, when this pit bull and I were loving on each other,
The owner says, "He bites".

Not me. I'm an animal activists. I fought for these little ones and they know it.
Pit Bull nuzzles my hand

mcdonalds cruelty and hate knows no bounds has no limits, the company seeks to destroy anything they can to sell death to anyone that will listen... education for mcdonalds is the key, its clear ignorance is the company motto why else sell terminal illness in a box and call it a happy meal... happy for the company, unhappy days for those who eat it and for animals that suffer and die in it. . merchants of death that's mcdonalds
life has value beyond measure
Peace and Love

My pitbulls would lay down their lives for me and my children. Will Mcdonalds pay for my health care for clogged arteries and heart attacks from their fake wanna be food? I think not. I think the only way they could ever make up for this add is to personally fund an organization for the survival of pit bulls who are mistreated, homeless or injured. That big clown is way way scarier than our puppy lol. Ask my kids.

Grrrrr...When are the governments of the world going to close down McDonalds and all similar outlets as a health hazard. The governments spend lots of tax payers money advertising and telling us to eat healthy food but allows outlets like McDonalds to dish out daily poison. It just as bad as smoking.

18002446227 press 1 and they have an apology and state that they are pulling the ad - still not good enough because they are only apologizing to people that care enough about the breed's misrepresentation to actually dial in. What about all the other people that do not know personally about the loving and loyal nature of pitbulls and buy into the stereotype of pitbulls that this type of advertisement promotes? I'm thoroughly disgusted with MCDs marketing team.

I don't eat mc donalds anyway, and to be honest I can't be bothered about this radio ad somewhere local in the US. Here in Europe I have bigger problems. Maybe it's a bigger problem where they get their meat from....be aware of the deforestation in South America, where they get their meat from.

There may be 'bigger problems' in Europe, but all problems deserve to be addressed and deserve to have a platform, including this one, public perception/brainwashing can create issues where there aren't any and cause unnecessary fear.

I have signed and noted, although I have listened to the ad and the offer only runs until the 5th (tomorrow), hopefully if they decide to do a similar offer again, they will now omit the unjust stereotype that all pit bulls must be dangerous.
