OK, we don't have the powers of The Shadow to let us know what evil lurks in the heart of Ronald McDonald, but some recent stories shed some light on who McDonald's might be hatin'.
1. Its Employees
The manager of a McDonald's in Brazil had to take the company to court to win compensation after gaining 65 pounds from having to sample the restaurant's food for a dozen years.
Another lawsuit, filed in Manhattan, alleges that three black men were told that they couldn't use the restrooms in a Kips Bay McDonald's unless they made a purchase, while a white woman was allowed to use the facilities without having to buy anything.
3. Animals (Especially Chickens)
Now that two U.S. chicken suppliers have begun implementing a less cruel method of slaughter called controlled-atmosphere killing (CAK), McDonald's has run out of excuses for continuing to subject birds to violence and injuries. Please add your voice today to those calling on McDonald's to require its suppliers to use CAK to spare chickens from unnecessary suffering.

McDonald's must also hate:
The environment: mass animal production/transportation etc and excessive packaging;
Future generations: Enticing children to consume their very unhealthy foods with Happy Meals, fun loving cartoons, games and toys...and of course it's footprint on the environment.
McDonald's must love:
Lawyers: Who defend them against nonsense as mentioned above.
Healthcare: Doctors, nurses etc. who give their time and efforts to fix people after having their insides ruined by their foods.
Psychologists: Advertising psychologists who help them pick colors that make one feel more hungry (such as red and yellow).
Money: They substitute compassion for animals and customers alike for the all mighty dollar.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
