The Russian division of Burger King took down an ad which offered a lifetime supply of Whopper burgers to Russian women if they get pregnant with a World Cup player's baby. Burger King told the Associated Press that it was sorry about "clearly offensive promotion that the team in Russia" had launched.

That translates to; 

"Burger King, within the framework of social responsibility, has appointed a reward for girls who get pregnant from the stars of world football. Each will receive 3 million rubles, and a lifelong supply of Whoppers. For these girls, it will be possible to get the best football genes, and will lay down the success of the Russian national team on several generations ahead. Forward! We believe in you!"
