Let HSBC Bank know that you find their current ad offensive.

The full page ad (which appears on page 15 of the May 5-11 "Time Out New
York") is a photo of a chicken foot (looking like it was literally ripped
from a chicken's leg), held by chop sticks, with the caption:

"breast, leg, or foot?
With 173 nationalities, you'll find more than just burgers and fries to eat
in the five boroughs [of New York]. A fact we at HSBC embrace on a daily
basis. We've built our bank doing business in 77 countries and territories
worldwide to better serve our customers, whatever they happen to like
eating. So if you're looking for something fresh on the menu, why not drop
by?"
