Soon after it was uploaded, the company received backlash on Twitter.
Burger King later removed the advertisement, but it was still being posted by Russian social network users.
"We are sorry about the clearly offensive promotion that the team in Russia launched online," Burger King said in a statement to The Associated Press, adding that the offer "does not reflect our brand or our values and we are taking steps to ensure this type of activity does not happen again."
This isn’t the first time the Russian division of the company has been condemned. Last year, it depicted a 17-year-old rape victim in a “buy one burger get one free” ad. It was also taken down.
