Carl's Jr. is currently running an ad in select markets; also accessible on their website through this link: http://www.carlsjr.com/#/on-tv-now/hula, which exploits and mocks the ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi (the Hawaiian language). This type of commercial is offensive and serves to do nothing but sell a product that is called the Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken Sandwhich with Grilled Pinapple. This product is not Hawaiian at all and only is marketed as such due to the grilled pineapple, which happens to be supplied by the Dole Company. This commercial is sexually suggestive and it is about time that Carl's Jr., and companies like them, start realizing that the Hawaiian wahi noho like o ka po‘e (community) will not put up with such overt mocking of our nā ‘ike a me nā hana (culture and customs) and use of our ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi (the Hawaiian language) in such ways. Please join this cause so that we can show Carl's Jr. that the Hawaiian wahi noho like o ka po‘e (community) is willing and ready to stand up for our nā ‘ike a me nā hana (culture and customs) and ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi (the Hawaiian language) and that we will no longer allow corporations to exploit them for the benefit of making money. Invite your friends and ‘ohana to join this cause as well and for them to pass it on. For far too long we have put up with companies mocking the Hawaiian nā ‘ike a me nā hana (culture and customs) and ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi (the Hawaiian language). It is time to stand up and demand that this stop and say, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
