The CEO of McDonald’s stepped down today. I didn’t know until today that he was an “African American”, but I think at least that explains the recent screwup with the “Lovin BEATS hatein'” ad campaign that was pulled at the last minute – making McDonalds overtly political in the deteriorating race relations in America.
A couple weeks ago, I saw this truly bizarre YouTube video. It’s so bad you will be tempted to believe it is a parody.
The Clearly “diverse” Asian host talks to a “smart” white female PR flack wearing 10x too much makeup. The theme is “I don’t believe McDonalds when they say they don’t use pink slime”. After repeating the accusations a dozen times, he announces this is the first Big Mac he’s had in 15 years, takes the obligatory “Mmm, it’s good” then likely vomits out the bite after the camera cuts away.
Seriously, was the CEO trying to destroy McDonalds from the inside?
