There have been a number of stories I've noticed recently about things being banned, or altered after complaints were made.

Burger King fell prey to "falling down" syndrome when customers complained that their burgers weren't as big as the ones on the advert

"We also examined the size of the burgers in the hands of an average-sized man and considered that they did not fill the hands to the same extent as the burger featured in the ad." thats dedication...

On the same day however I found this article reporting that an advert that intimates a cat being kicked which was deemed ok for use.

Across the globe meanwhile playboy portugal had to pull issues showing jesus on the cover, even after they claimed that the image was never approved.

Dodge however reacted to complaints made about their advert showing a chimp in a suit by altering their ad...they now have an invisible chimp!

Now thats disturbing.

I fear for these burger enthusiasts. Next they'll be complaining that Lynx deodorant doesn't have women throwing themselves at them. It's a damn advertisement. The burgers in adverts aren't even edible because makeup artists tend to use toxic substances in order to make them look better than they actually are.
