McDonald's Hoax Trends on Twitter, We Wonder Why

​Since when did the place that promises $1 double burgers for all get so un-American? Apparently it hasn't.

Over the weekend, a photo circulated through the Twittersphere of a "McDonald's sign" that read, "As an insurance measure due in part to a recent string of robberies, African-American customers are now required to pay an additional fee of $1.50 per transaction. Thank you for your cooperation." posted this article today debunking the Twitter trend (#SeriouslyMcDonalds) as a hoax. Not only is the photo fake, but also it's nothing new, Eater says. The McHoax was mentioned here last summer.

McDonald's response: "That pic is a senseless & ignorant hoax McD's values ALL our customers. Diversity runs deep in our culture on both sides of the counter."

All we've gotta say is, #SeriouslyAmerica?

Funny thing is, we all know it should be true

"Diversity runs deep in our culture on both sides of the counter". What a quote. So folks of all colors can eat the crap, and also serve it too. Wonderful. America is indeed a land of equal opportunity.
