(WXIA) -- A number of people in the US are upset with a Chinese eatery in Beijing that refers to itself as "Obama Fried Chicken," complete with a faked KFC-style sign and cariacture of President Barack Obama.
The sign uses the same red color that American chicken restaurant chain KFC uses, with a smiling cariacture of the president in place of Col. Harland Sanders that adorns the KFC signs in the US. A caption on the sign in Chinese appaently translates as "We're so cool, aren't we?"
Rev. Al Sharpton was very critical of the signage, and was quoted in Monday's New York Post discussing the sign.
"It's insulting, offensive and plays to racial stereotypes," Sharpton said in the Post.
The sign is not the only "Obama Fried Chicken" out there. A restaurant much closer to home -- in Harlem -- calls itself Obama Fried Chicken, and according to the New York eatery's owner, it was named in honor of the president.
