My only issues is that McDonald’s don’t have a heavy presence on the continent like KFC or Burger King, so why are they trying to profit off the continent in that respect.

  2. For example with the "KKK Group" yeah its stupid as hell and a 8th grader could have likely foreseen the outcome, however why even acknowledge the KKK? Theyre a hate group, the shouldnt even have the right to the acronym tbh

  3. Popular speech rarely needs protection. Unpopular speech is what needs to be protected. Minority views must be given more respect, not less. Context TV should be supporting free speech, not trying to curtail it.

  8. Bringing this up is a quite good action because Public Relations can get to know what to improve and how to prevent all of these mistakes that has made. Before I step into PR world, I get to learn what is good to the public. Maybe this is a good way to improve my public relations skill too.
