Burger King is under fire for their new ‘gay burger’.

The fast-food giant revealed The Proud Whopper, a limited edition product sold only in San Francisco for one week only.

Customers in the city got their first taste of the burger during Sunday’s pride parade, but for some that first bite was very bitter.

Some social media users were outraged by the burger, a standard Whopper with a rainbow wrapper with the message: ‘We Are All The Same Inside’.

Using the hashtag #BoycottBurgerKing, some said they would not eat there until they stopped selling the ‘fag burgers’.








But there were some happy customers, as seen from this great promotional video:
