We the consumers of Carl's Jr. find the commercial for Paris Hilton's Spicy Hot Six Dollar Burger insulting to our intelligence and in no way reflects reality. Do you really want for us to believe that a rich hotel heiress with no talent whatsoever would actually eat fast food?

The site of Miss Hilton in a bikini and washing a luxury car was not only sexist and degrading to all women but it made some of us lose our appetites when she is strutting around like an arrogant peacock.

Let's make some comparisions to Miss Hilton and Karl Karcher the founder:

Los Angeles 1941. Young Carl N. Karcher and his wife, Margret, make a leap of faith and borrow $311 on their Plymouth automobile, add $15 in savings and purchase a hot dog cart. One cart grows to four, and in less than five years, Carl's Drive-In Barbecue opens with hamburgers on the menu.

Paris Hilton was born on February 17th, 1981, to Rick and Kathy Hilton, making her the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, founder of the Hilton hotels and source of the family fortune -- estimated at $300 million. Her grandfather, Conrad "Nicky" Hilton, Jr., also brought some notoriety to the family, as he was the first of Elizabeth Taylor's many ex-husbands. Paris' younger sister, Nicky (born in 1983), shares the throne as co-heiress of the Hilton empire.

The Karchers have earned their millions while Miss Hilton was born into it, does this seem fair? We are sure that if Carl Karcher were alive today he would not approve of how his product is being sold to the masses. And if he were still in charge and he knew about Miss Hilton's reputation he would not have let this commercial be made.

The Karchers were honest hard-working people who built an empire. Miss Hilton is a spoiled no-talent rich girl who has obviously had her fame bought for her. Let the records show that a sex tape that made its way onto the Internet is still selling like hot cakes. And she hasn't helped matters with her obnoxious conduct at a number of functions and parties. Is this the type of representative that Carl's Jr. wants for their chain? Some of us would think not.

Throughout the years, Carl's Jr. has always been thought of as a family type business with family values and Paris Hilton, we feel, in our honest opinion, does not represent those family values of Carl's Jr.'s most loyal customers.

Until this commercial is taken off the air for good, we will no longer frequent any Carl's Jr. to line Miss Hilton's pockets with money that she does not deserve and until you at Carl's Jr. apologize for selling out to your loyal customers.
