The current conflict in Eastern Europe has prompted many public and private companies to halt their operations in Russia. Giant companies like Disney, Apple, Netflix, and TikTok have joined the bandwagon, but one famous fast-food giant has not.
McDonald's has not ceased its operations in Russia, and angry Twitter users have called to #BoycottMcDonalds. One netizen tweeted a picture of a McDonald’s outlet doing business as usual in Russia, with the caption “I’m not lovin’ it.”
However, some Twitter users claim that the outrage towards McDonald's is misguided. Another netizen took this trend with a sense of humor, tweeting, "All of this #BoycottMcDonalds is just making me want a double cheeseburger."
