FIFA World Cup 2018: Burger King apologises for offering burgers to Russian women who get pregnant to World Cup players
In a weird tweet on Tuesday, Burger King promised, "$50,000 and lifetime whopper supply for Russian women able to get pregnant from any football celebrity (to transfer good genes to Russia). Immediately the tweet went viral and social media followers of the burger joint trolled the tweet, calling it sexist and demeaning.

Although the tweet was taken down on the same day, yet it is still going around internet among FIFA fans,“the best football genes”.
After the post was taken down, another post was written in a Russian-language, “We offer apologies for the announcement we made. It was too offensive.”
They even added that such an offer doesnot reflect their brand or their values and promised to take steps to ensure that similar activity does not happen in future.
