Edited to add: I have to admit I didn’t not properly “vet” this news before posting. I am in the process now of confirming that this is an actual ad by McDonald’s and not just an internet hoax designed to incite people. I will be back with my findings.
Edited to add: Here is the radio ad on YouTube.
The one thing I want to say to McDonald’s is this: I don’t believe you meant any harm by your ad. I’m guessing you’re amazed by the uproar it’s caused. But here’s the thing. Our dogs have been painted as vicious killing machines by the media. They’re being banned and killed in cities all over this country. Strangers cross the street to avoid us when we walk our dogs through our own neighborhoods. This isn’t because our dogs have done anything wrong – it’s because the public has been lead to believe they’re bad. We don’t need YOU adding to the crazy amount of misinformation and fear-mongering that’s already going on. Please pull this ad immediately.
