Viewers Deeply Offended By Women With Bad Manners?

View the commercial here.
According to Adrants:

Ignoring the “don’t talk with your mouth full” childhood rule, KFC is running a commercial to promote its Zinger Chicken Salads in the UK showing call center workers singing with their mouths full. Although meant as humor, the ad has garnered 1,040 complaints from people claiming the ad would cause – hold your breath – bad manners. It’s the second highest number of complaints ever received for an ad.

See also. It’s an annoying ad, but I just don’t see the same reaction occurring if the commercial depicted men mumbling with their mouths full.

    For that matter, I’m not sure we’d see this kind of response if the commercial showed men committing acts of violence. Don’t these people have anything better (worse) to complain about?
