Burger King has apologized to Hindus for running an ad featuring the many-limbed goddess Lakshmi hawking a Whopper, the Daily Telegraph is reporting.

Burger King pulled the ad from franchises in Spain after Hindus complained that it belittled their religion. Nearly all the ingredients in the “Texican Whopper” — from beef to mayonnaise — are forbidden to Hindus.


However, Burger King is bouncing right back with a new double cheeseburger. They’re calling it the “Kosher Whopper,” and they’ll depict a Hasidic rabbi enjoying the burger, along with a new pork sandwich and a shrimp salad. Tasty!
