UK Burger King baits the public with seemingly controversial sexist tweet to make statements for female chef empowerment on ‘International Women’s Day’

Published

The management and PR team for UK Burger King’s social media, Twitter to be precise come under intense scrutiny for seemingly derogating themselves just to pass an important message about women’s involvement in the chef occupation on ‘International Women’s Day’.

The particular tweet which already has the internet ablaze says: “Women belong in the kitchen.”

Users of Twitter and women generally are particularly not happy with the manner in which the PR team for Burger King had chosen to pass the message, insinuating the popular misogynistic statement said to spite females and their choice of careers and they (users of Twitter and women generally) have expressed their disappointment and disapproval of such statements, especially coming from a very popular and established franchise as Burger King.

Various reactions have spawned from the tweet, here are few of them below:

But on the ensuing tweets, Burger King did try to clear the air on what they meant about their “women belong in the kitchen” statement; they explain: “If they want to, of course. Yet only 20% of chefs are women. We’re on a mission to change the gender ratio in the restaurant industry by empowering female employees with the opportunity to pursue a culinary career. #IWD”, continuing: “We are proud to be launching a new scholarship programme which will help female Burger King employees pursue their culinary dreams!”

This however did not go down well judging by the interactions got from the reply section of the tweet, as Burger King is being labelled “sexist” and acting “tone deaf” especially on a day such as ‘International Women’s Day’.

Emeka Akumefule, known as Blaqbonez was the guest on Nancy Isime’s Trending show which airs on HipTV. On the daily entertainment show, he speaks about his career path and the kind of music he makes.

When asked what his music entails, the rapper and singer answered: “I pride myself in being versatile, every time I come out [with a new song], I try to make sure it’s different from the last thing.” Blaqbonez says while citing Drake as his biggest inspiration in the music industry worldwide.

Nancy Isime went further to ask Blaqbonez what his thoughts are about being labelled the “touch bearer of rap in Nigeria” to which he gave the reply: “I honestly I’m not trying to get boxed in, so anytime there’s any rap conversations, I don’t care about that. . . I’m versatile.” Blaqbonez goes further to say the era of championing himself as the “Best Rapper in Africa” or BRIA (for short) is over, that he only went with the vibe because of the response he got from saying those words in one of his songs and since people cared much about what he had to say, he used the BRIA tag to his advantage, taking his music to the mainstream forefront; even testifying to the fact that many rappers call themselves ‘the best’ on their songs but no one really pays attention.
