McDonald's latest ad campaign featuring a love story between a male customer and a female staff member has been criticised by netizens for promoting the ‘wrong precedent’ of customers hitting on employees.
Fast food chain McDonald's may have tried to be unique with their latest ad campaign but netizens did not like the short love story between the staff and the customer.
Another user wrote, "McDonald's ad encouraging customers to flirt with the employees.
What does MC in McDonald's stand for?"
A Twitter user wrote, "Mc Donald should be reported for this ad which upsets the dignity of counter workers and relays a very skewed message".
This week, food delivery platform Zomato witnessed backlash from netizens for its advertisement on World Environment Day. Zomato came under fire for depicting the actor who played the Dalit character Kachra in the film "Lagaan" as items made of recycled waste. The ad, aiming to show the food delivery company's recycling efforts, was termed "disgusting", "blatantly casteist", and "extremely insensitive" by netizens on Twitter. Zomato has now deleted the advertisement from across social media platforms.
