Taco Bell Pulls Ad Bashing Healthy Eaters

Taco Bell is pulling one of its television ads.  Fox News reports it comes after receiving complaints that it discouraged people from eating vegetables.  The ad showed a 12 pack of tacos.  A voice said that bringing a vegetable tray to a party is like punting on 4th and one, saying that people secretly hate guests who bring veggies to parties.

A health advocacy group urged people to tweet their complaints and Taco Bell quickly pulled it.  The company says it doesn’t want anyone to misinterpret the ad’s intent.
