Latinos Had The Most Savage Things To Say About Burger King’s Mental Health ‘Real Meals’

Burger king is here to… help you eat your feelings?

May marks Mental Health Awareness Month and in its Burger King is offering up Real Meals― meals to match your moods.

On Wednesday, the fast food giant launched the burgers while simultaneously taking a sling at its longtime competitor McDonald’s. Their method?

Telling consumers through a series of ads that not all meals have to be so happy.

An ad included in Burger King’s Real Meals campaign captures different people experience various struggles just feeling their feels. This all while singing to the franchise’s “Have It Your Way” tune.

“Not everybody wakes up happy. Sometimes you feel sad, scared, crappy,” one sad character sings in the video.

And releasing a series of five mood-inspired meals.

Burger King’s newest Real Meals come in five different forms: Yaaas Meal, DGAF Meal, Salty Meal, Pissed Meal, and Blue Meal.

Users online are responding to the ad with a WHOLE lot of feels and realness.

As one user pointed out, the franchise really missed the mark when they decided to create music video about people feeling sad and then proceded to give their Unhappy Meals colloquial names.

Including ones on how Burger King can help their employees address their own mental health issues.

FYI the typical Burger King Team Member salary is $8.30 per hour.

Some are even highlighting how poor eating can affect mental health.

And we all know those “Real Meals” which are loaded with whopper burgers aren’t here doing wonders for your physical health.

In fact people were pretty offended.

Because… how bad does capitalism have to get that Burger King starts using mental health to promote their menu?

And of course, tons of Latinos had some pretty fun things to say.

And just about everyone is upset Burger King wont be including a toy in this one at the LEAST.

And some took the time to break down the real problems with the ad.

Burger King’s Real Meals include a Whopper sandwich, fries and a drink and will be available in select locations.
