Ya’ll, Paul McCartney is PISSED!!!!!!!

Crap hit the fan this week when McCartney found out that a Liverpool McDonald’s chain was using his photograph in their store. As many know, McCartney is a longtime vegetarian who works hard to spread the joys of meat-freedom wherever he goes and obviously would never support a company that makes their money off the reckless slaughter of animals.

A McDonald’s spokeswoman says the picture was to “acknowledge the outstanding contribution the Beatles made to both local and global culture”. But Paul’s spokesman Geoff Baker wants to know, “What sort of morons do McDonald’s think Beatles fans are? It’s ridiculous and insulting to use images to peddle hamburgers. Fans should boycott McDonald’s – and not just in Liverpool.”

Seriously though, this was an insanely idiotic move…even for McDonalds. Paul McCartney has never been shy about his passion for vegetarianism. Of course he wouldn’t be excited about promoting fast food!! What was Mickey D’s thinking?

Oh wait…do you guys smell that? Nope, it’s not a hamburger. It smells to me more like a big, juicy lawsuit.

    What was McDonald’s thinking?
    I woved never to go to McD’s again but sometimes my friends want to get something there so I usually just end up buying something at the McCafè. Sucks though

    McDonald’s is a such a horror on so many levels it hardly surprises me that they’ve annoyed McCartney. It would really amuse me to see all the Beatles fans boycott the company worldwide though, that MIGHT actually put enough of a pinch on the company to make a difference.

    Geoff Baker is NOT Paul’s spokesperson anymore. He even says so on his website. Don’t know who started this story, but Paul has nothing on his webiste about it. There are no statements from him from his real spokesperson Stuart Bell. This is fake.

    Marie- I gathered information from a variety of sources on this one, but the Telegraph is reporting the same story:

    Yeah, the Telegraph is printing it, which just goes to show you can`t believe everything in the so-called “quality” press either. No, Baker is not Paul`s spokesman, but I bet he is behind this “story”. There are no quotes from Paul. Of course he is anti-McDonald`s, but I doubt he even knew about the photos.

    Paul and Ringo are both vegetarians, as was George, so the concept of a burger joint using the Beatles to promote their product is disrespectful, to say the least.

  • erin

    I hope the story spreads as fast as the people’s waists who eat at McNasty’s.

    bottom line is Paul would be offended as would George (rest his soul) and I’m sure Ringo.

    Let’s ALL boycott McDonald’s! (oh wait I already do) that place is EVIL to the max.

    cutting down the rainforests, using pesticides galore. i could go on and on and on.
