McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish, with a side of racial profiling?
One McDonald’s patron got more than than just a fillet-O -fish for dinner but also got it with a seal of racism. Reddit user Kqpro was surprised to see the “Asian” label stuck to the front of his burger, saying he “didn’t know these stickers existed.” Neither did we.
However, according to further comments on the Reddit post, leftover McDonald’s stickers from discontinued stock are often used to stick on the slips. Seeing as the Asian salad was recently taken off the menu, it seems the spare stickers were quickly put to use on the front of fillet-O-fish burger packets instead. But other McDonald’s employees commented on the genius of the idea. Saying it’s a perfect way to work out which customer to give the order to.
What do you think? Was it an accident or an act of genius?
