Unsurprisingly, it has been called ‘degrading’ and ‘inappropriate’ by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.

People have been inundating the burger chain and the Advertising Standards Authority with complaints after seeing the newest posters, and are calling for a huge boycott.

One offending ad shows a picture of a young cow, with the caption: ‘They eat grass so you don’t have to.’
