McDonald’s … We Stand With the Clown, Ronald McDonald not Fired
THE CLOWN STAYS!
Mac Donald’s stands behind Ronald MacDonald. How dare anyone tell another business what they can or cannot have as a symbol or mascot. Just curious, how many of the skinheads who sought to interfere with the business dealings of a company have ever donated to the Ronald Mac Donald House or helped children in need? As stated at Hot Air Pundit, if you don’t like the clown, no one is forcing you to go to Mac Donald’s.
The 48-year-old, red-haired mascot has come under fire from health-care professionals and consumer groups who, in recent days, have asked the fast-food chain to retire Ronald McDonald. But McDonald’s Chief Executive Officer Jim Skinner staunchly defended the clown at the company’s annual meeting on Thursday, saying, “Ronald McDonald is going nowhere.”
Shareholders seemed to agree, voting down a proposal to require the hamburger giant to tally the financial impact of defending its children’s meals. Just 6% of shareholders voted in favor of the resolution.
What’s next for these folks, the Burger King? Although, he is a bit creepy.

The Burger King is creepy.
I have no problem with Ronald, though if I were a shareholder I would desire him to be updated a little; or maybe his retro-ness is a style of its own….I guess they know what they are doing.
What I can say is that McD’s is far healthier than it used to be. I see a lot of kids getting apples instead of fries with their meals these days. Not saying its healthy, but there has been an effort.
Can you imagine being so anal retentive?
Who gets WHACKED next? The San Diego chicken? Goofy? Mickey Mouse?
Apparently, 6% of McDonald’s shareholders are in immediate need of GETTING A LIFE!
Agreed, Burger King has a creep factor. It must be a European thing.
