[Ed. – Fast food chains should stick to selling junk food and avoid selling junk politics.]
Burger King has been accused of endorsing violence after reminding customers in Scotland that it’s ‘selling milkshakes all weekend’.
The fast food giant shared a post to the ‘people of Scotland’ seemingly in response to McDonald’s stopping the sales of ice creams and milkshakes near a Nigel Farage rally in Edinburgh on Friday.
McDonald’s said police had requested they stopped selling them after other European election candidates were targeted by protesters.
‘Dear people of Scotland. We’re selling milkshakes all weekend. Have fun,’ Burger King tweeted, along with the hashtag #justsaying.
They were soon accused of ‘inciting violence’ against Farage and other far-right figures, including former EDL leader Tommy Robinson, who was hit by two milkshakes earlier this month.
Angry customers blasted Burger King for the post on social media.
‘Hi Burger King, can I come throw milkshake over your staff please?’ one sarcastically asked.
