McDonald’s Violence Goes Viral

Published by PETA.

Unless McDonald’s wants to be considered as a possible CGI backdrop for the new Mortal Kombat game, the chain might have a PR problem. Fights are breaking out at McDonalds locations across the country, including an attack on a woman in Baltimore that initiated a protest outside the restaurant when the video hit YouTube.

Then there were folks duking it out at a McDonald’s job fair in Cleveland, and a shooting took place at a San Jose location.

Is it possible that McDonald’s bad karma for letting its suppliers slash conscious chickens’ throats and scald many of them to death is catching up with it? E-mail the fast-food behemoth to let it know that you support ending all forms of violence, and ask McDonald’s to switch to the less cruel slaughter method that PETA has recommended.
