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.
