Why McDonald's Gay Ad in France Pissed Off... Wait for it... Gays
McDonald's has begun allowing access to a number of gay-related websites from its free Wi-Fi service, but is sticking by its ban of a leading gay news website. The fast food chain faced the anger of the gay community after denying access to gay-related websites on a new free Wi-Fi service at its restaurants. The service, installed in branches nationwide in December, saw McDonald's claim it was now the largest free internet provider in New Zealand. But the service filtered a number of sites it deems to fall outside its "family friendly" policy. This saw access blocked to a number gay and lesbian-related sites.
A gay business advocacy group is charging McDonald's with hypocrisy after the global fast food giant aired a gay-themed commercial in France. In the second spot, a young man is shown in a McDonald's restaurant, admiring a picture of his all-male class and speaking in French to a classmate on a cell phone, telling him he misses him. The man hangs up once his father, carrying a tray of food, arrives at the table. The father, evidently clueless about his son's phone conversation, takes a look at the class photo and remarks how, if only his son's class was co-ed, he "could get all the girls" -- prompting a faint smile from his son. The spot ends with the phrase "come as you are," in French, flashing on the screen before the McDonald's logo appears.
