At the University of Chicago last week, Hees was reported as saying, “The food is terrible and the women are not very attractive [in England]. Here in Chicago, the food is good and you are known for good-looking women.”
Burger King’s official apology on behalf of its chief executive said: “Mr Hees apologises if his comment has offended anyone. It … was intended as a humorous anecdote to connect with his audience.”
