Mexico Doesn't Like Short Wrestlers

Mexico's Ambassador to Spain has sent a letter to Burger King complaining about the following ad:

He says it's because of the "stereotype" of Mexicans. I'm wondering if Burger King is really stereotyping Mexicans as short wrestlers. Does Burger King's racism have any boundaries?

I've decided to be offended by their characterization of Texans as lanky cowboy-types who don't have the strength to open a pickle jar (or maybe that's a job Americans won't do). I hereby demand that Burger King immediately remove the ad and replace the Cowboy with a 6-foot tall, medium-build, balding lawyer like yours truly.

But leave the wrestler in. That's funny stuff.
