A new McDonald's ad created an uproar in the Philippines for allegedly depicting prepubescent sexuality.

A recent McDonald's ad, pushing its new McSavers menu in the Philippines, was lambasted by the Catholic Church as being sinful for its depiction of early-childhood sexuality. The ad shows two kindergarten-aged kids talking by the slide, discussing whether or not they are boyfriend and girlfriend. McDonald's then pulled the ad to end the controversy.

Was this reaction too extreme? Judge for yourself. Watch the video below.
