Is Jack in the Box's New "Check Out My Bowls" Ad Too Offensive?

Jack in the Box is taking heat for an ad for their new teriyaki bowls . . . where their mascot keeps telling people to, "check out his bowls."  "Ad Week" called it completely tone-deaf to the whole "Me Too" movement.

And the ad itself even addresses how it might be offensive.  Halfway through, it cuts to a conference room.  And an actor playing a CEO-type says their corporate lawyers aren't happy about it.
