Burger King billboard gets much deserved graffiti

(Were they asking for it or what!?)  Burger King billboard gets diabetes graffiti:  "Someone has graffitied this Burger King billboard in downtown Seattle to transform it into criticism about how sugary fast food contributes to diabetes and the obesity crisis.

The original billboard does that classic advertising trick of getting away with making a joke while still promoting an idea that's not so great for you, which is to eat more deserts at Burger King.

The billboard shows an ice cream cone, a parfait, a milkshake and then a Burger King logo. Underneath the items in progression it says "side," "entree," and "drink." To modify it into a commentary, on the logo, the vandalizer drew a bloated person with a frowny face and x-ed out eyes. Below it they scrawled, "diabetes."
