LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Hardee's is giving the ax to the sexy teacher.

The fast-food chain is pulling ads featuring a sexy blonde teacher dancing on her desk in front of students. She slaps her butt while the students rap about her "flat buns."

Teachers are blasting the commercial.

The president of the Tennessee Education Association calls the ad "demeaning."

The flat buns spot was also used by Carl's Jr., which is owned by the same parent company as Hardee's. The company says it's keeping the rap song, but will feature another character in the commercial.
