A fast food chain’s racy new advertising campaign has left at least one teacher’s organization demanding it be pulled.

The ad for St. Louis, Missouri-based Hardee’s Corporation features a sexy teacher, making provocative moves in front of the class while two students rap to a song called "Flat Buns,” according to a report on myFOXstl.com.

"How irresponsible can you get?” said the Tennessee Education Association in a statement on their website. ”At this very moment, there are female teachers in high school classrooms with 30+ students who are working hard to teach our children so that they can compete in today's world. It is unbelievably demeaning to every one of them to promote a television advertisement showing a young teacher gyrating on top of her desk while boys in the class rap about her body in order to sell hamburgers!"

That commercial is the ultimate in bad taste.

I won't be giving Hardees my business.

Well, I have to admit, I got a chuckle out of it, and went to Carl's Jr, and picked up a patty melt. I'm not into rap, but the sandwich is tasty if a little greasy.

If you take your life values from a Hardee's commercial...Then you're probably way to impressionable to be a productive member of society.

Here's an idea...if the commercial *offends* you, then simply don't patronize them.

That's capitalism.
