McCartney’s McDonald’s McVictory
After finding out that a McDonald’s restaurant in his hometown of Liverpool had plastered the walls with photos of him and the rest of the Fab Four, Sir Paul McCartney—who is known by all (except maybe the marooned fighter pilot on Gilligan’s Island) as being a longtime and outspoken vegetarian—was less than glad all over.
Refusing to let it be, McCartney urged his fans to boycott the fast-food behemoth. Surprisingly, the notoriously tone-deaf purveyor of patties seems to have gotten the message, and the photos have reportedly gotten back to where they once belonged.
Maybe next McDonald’s will agree to make improvements in the way chickens are killed for its restaurants. I’m sure Sir Paul wouldn’t object to Meat-Free Mondays at McDonald’s, either—or better yet, meatless meals eight days a week.
