Taco Bell pulls Super Bowl ad after allegations that it’s insensitive to vegetable lovers

Taco Bell has pulled an outrageously offensive Super Bowl ad after a Twitter campaign shamed the fast good chain into doing the right thing. (Except not really.)

Taco Bell’s alleged offense? Discouraging people from eating their vegetables.

In the ad, the narrator suggests that bringing a tray of raw vegetables to a football party is a really lame decision (which it is).

“Veggies on game day is like punting on fourth and one. It’s a cop out,” Taco Bell guy says, and then suggests that people will “secretly hate you” unless you bring a Taco 12 Pack.

But the health advocacy group Center for Science in the Public Interest asked Twitter users to tweet their disappointment at Taco Bell for encouraging people to eat delicious tacos rather than carrot sticks, The Associated Press reports.
