The tweets were flying this weekend after a certain musician took over the mic as Taylor Swift happily accepted her first Moonman. (Stay classy, Kanye.)
Little did those angry tweeters know that Kanye was not the only mic takeover artist this weekend. As McDonald's CEO was stepping up to receive an award (no, not a VMA—they don't give out Moonmen for cruelty), a protester beat him to the podium and blasted him for McDonald's suppliers' inhumane slaughter practices.
"Shame on you, Jim Skinner," indeed!
