Arcópoli, a Madrid-based LGBT rights group, organizes a group of protesters for a kiss-in at a Burger King in Spain after a same-sex couple was reported to be kicked out of the restaurant. Arcópoli spokeswoman Amanda Rodríguez:
This type of behavior is unacceptable in our city and we hope that the ‘Burger King’ chain will take sufficiently forceful measures to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
Though a Burger King spokesperson was not available for comment, Arcópoli received a statement from the company.
BKC has a long history of dedication to diversity, including support for the LGBT community. Diversity is a a driving force for our innovation and to develop an inclusive environment for everyone: employees, franchises, providers, and customers of BURGER KING(r) restaurants. The franchise that operates this BURGER KING (r) restaurant has a zero tolerance police for any type of discrimination and, upon learning of these events, has taken immediate measures to address the incident.
