Carl’s Jr.’s latest commercial for its Tex Mex Bacon Thickburger features two teams of bikini-clad volleyball players going back and forth to decide who the burger belongs to — Texas or Mexico.
Now some have criticized the commercial because they think it’s racist, but model Kara Del Toro says that’s not what it’s about at all.
“I mean people can look for an underlying meaning in anything,” Del Toro told TMZ. “But they definitely didn’t intend for it to come off that way. We were just having fun.”
“It was just a sexy, fun commercial to advertise the burger.” (RELATED: Kim Kardashian Absolutely Sucked At Eating Carl’s Jr. Burgers, Apparently)
In a previous interview, Del Toro said the commercial was a joke about what’s happening now politically.
“I don’t think it goes too far. I think it’s really sexy, and I think it’s playing up on what’s going on politically right now with immigration. I think it was a bold move for Carl’s Jr. I love it, and they did the butt slapping scene in slow motion. So, it was pretty hot.” (RELATED: This Is Hottest, Most Patriotic Commercial Ever)
