Next we’ll be hearing that they’re actually paying people to eat this stuff.
In what NewsFeed can only assume is an attempt to overcome bad publicity from the lawsuit that claims the meat Taco Bell uses only contains 36% beef, the fast food franchise is now offering the “World’s Largest Taco Giveaway on Facebook.” Apparently, 10 million people who “like” Taco Bell on Facebook will be gifted with a free taco.
You know things are bad when you have to resort to giving your product away.
Although Taco Bell has run ads in major newspapers countering the lawsuit by stating that their taco meat actually contains 88% beef, clearly they’re still concerned about their rep. Will this promotion help? Probably.
