Here’s a link to the McDonald’s Media Center which includes an official response which seems to have gone up in the last 24 hours.
Good stuff, huh?
Except the incident took place on Monday and McDonald’s didn’t stir themselves until the story started to go viral and hit the news headlines about, er, 24 hours ago.
So much for caring McDonaald’s. If there hadn’t been the publicity, do we think they’d even have deigned to reply.
Meanwhile, it is now 12 hours since my first call to the UK duty office of McDonald’s and 2 hours since my second. For the non-press reading this: a duty office is meant to provide 24/7 out of hours conver for press stories.
I underlined that this was a story of immense concern to the UK trans community, but…still no response.
The silence speaks volumes.
