    Its so simple. If you're vegetarian, don't go to McDonald's 😂😂😂 be vegetarian or vegan all you want but don't force your shit on other people or ruin a menu for everyone else

    Hate me or love me but McDonald's workers don't deserve 15 an hour. It's a summer job for kids, anyone who sticks around this no skill job is a master of their own fate.

    Let's get this straight WatchMojo, I was raised by a mother whose background is in biology, and according to her, gender is a biological fact. There's no such thing as transgender, a man pretending to be a woman or a woman pretending to be a man does not make it reality. And you can't even call these people mad, because as GK Chesterton put it, the man has lost everything but his reason. there is so much I like about your channel, but when you push leftist propaganda, it makes me not want to watch it. I will say, even going the other way, I would be offended, if someone was attacked for being homosexual, and verifiably abused for it, even though I'm very much against gay marriage and the like, I would be right there with you in condemning it. I don't even eat McDonalds, I'm a vegetarian. I did, however have a friend that worked there, who is female and identifies as her biological gender, like a rational person would. She was abused for her ancestry, and I'll leave it at that. She was made to work hours she wasn't scheduled to work, she was pushed very hard to do things that quite frankly, someone as small as her she wouldn't be physically able to do. She's a very petite woman, who is being made to do things that were very strenuous. So yes, McDonald's has done some messed up things, but transgenderism still isn't a real thing.

    Okay I hate McDonald's as the perfect plastic-food industry, but I hate vegans more... so if you want eat your grass, go a place for that (a garden for example). Fast Food restaurants are all high meat users, dont make them change this because you are too pussy to eat like every other normal human. Open your own garden and go eat your plants there.

    100% pure beef is NOT a lie (exactly) It's just incomplete. The burgers ARE in fact 100% pure beef, they're just not 100% pure "meat" the beef that's in the patty's is pure beef, however there is a great amount of non meat product mixed in.

      +Keith Drummond It's a Finnish fast-food restaurant chain, their food is really high quality and it's healthier than places like Burger king and McDonald's. It used to be like McDonald's, but ever since the original owner took it back over their options have become healthier, they even make tortillas, different salads and if I remember correctly they even make vegan burgers.

    I'm shocked to find Micky Dee's is still using BEEF TALLOW for frying their French fries! What I wonder now is: are they using beef tallow in cooking other items on their menu. Many viewers are probably not aware that some years ago, when health advisers were telling people that the oil in fish is good for people (it's said to raise your "good cholesterol" level), it was discovered that McDonald's was deep frying their fish in the same beef tallowy grease as their fries, thereby driving OUT the fish oil! I also saw an NBC consumer report, back in the day, about Chicken McNuggets, which the reporter said contained such things as chicken fat (Schmaltz, in Yiddish" and GROUND SKIN in their nuggets, as "binders!" I PRESUMED they'd changed this policy---but have they, really? In the words of Rowen and Martin's "Laugh-in," sock it to 'em, WM!

    Turns out 16% of her body wasn’t burned and she was wearing nylon pants that made it worst. Several tried recreating her burns with 180 degree liquids and could only do it after other materials were involved. 16% is also a big F lie. It’s true she won but she also lied. Thanks to this idiot, when I worked as a barista, I couldn’t warm deserts and heat drinks to a nice temperature in winter. And because of her, there are several lawsuits that are dumb as F.
