Taco Bell Wins! Mocks Losers!Posted: April 21, 2011
If you are unfamiliar, law firm Beasley Allen brought a lawsuit against Taco Bell for not selling real beef in their diarea causing burritos. So Taco Bell put out this full page ad explaining their beef was real. Turns out real beef IS used in Taco Bell food. Since then:
Beasley Allen may have dropped its class-action lawsuit, but Taco Bell isn’t entirely satisfied.
In a full page ad that ran in today’s edition of the Wall Street Journal, LA Times, and The New York Times, the Yum! Brands division asked the Alabama-based lawfirm to apologize for claiming that its meat mixture doesn’t meet the USDA’s requirements to be called “beef.”
“You go it wrong,” Taco Bell tells Beasley Allen in the ad, “and you’re probably feeling pretty bad right about now. But you know what always helps? Saying to everyone, ‘I’m sorry’.”
