On Monday we showed you an ad for KFC airing in China in which a President Obama lookalike is crushed by a giant fish sandwich. Obama Foodorama reports (via Eater) that Yum! Brands, the parent company of KFC, has pulled the ads.
"It is no longer airing and will not be re-aired," Yum! Brands spokesman Ben Golden said of the ad campaign, via e-mail. "It was meant to be a spoof and no disrespect was intended."
