We beleive that Celebrities should not endorse fast food products because it not only promotes the consumption of unhealthy foods and bevarges, but it also creates an image in the pubilic's mind that eating unhealthy fast food is acceptable, which it is not. Please give us your opinion on this subject!


The first and foremost issue with the case is that fast food chains are just as entitled to be endorsed as any other legal industry chain on Earth. To suggest differently would be discrimination based on prejudice and food preference. This is an invalid basis for a law to be passed and thus no legal restrictions whatsoever should be placed on who they choose to endorse.

Countless celebrities have died form eating disorders, or at least have survived severe near-death ones.[] They have also been seen to indirectly cause anorexia and bulimia in teens.[]

I conclude that BoP is not met by Pro.

We strong believe that celebrities should not endorse fast food products. Without these harmful advertisements and testimonials, obesity rates would decrease by 18 % according to a recent study. While some may argue that celebrities are an effective way of advertising products, the harsh truth is that the customers of these products will be the one who will be effected negatively from these adds. This is why we believe that celebrities should no longer endorse these harmful products. They are not only destructive to the human body, but they are also a threat to the human mind.
