Nando's Drops Dictator Ad

dictators-sand-angels-200.jpgSouth African fast food chain Nando's has dropped an ad depicting Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe remembering the good ol' days with departed friends like Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi. Turns out it's against the law in Zimbabwe to insult Mugabe, and militants threatened a boycott and "other unspecified punitive action" unless the ad was dropped. Hmm, there must be other ways to sell chicken. [AP]
