McDonald’s Franchise owners are reportedly upset over Cardi B and Offset limited edition meal, but the Migos artist responds back!
It’s been over 2 weeks since McDonald’s launched their first-ever celebrity duo meal on Valentine’s Day. The meal featuring Cardi B and her husband Offset consist of Quarter Pounder®* with Cheese, Cheeseburger, Tangy Barbeque Sauce, World Famous Fries® (Large), Baked Apple Pie, Coca-Cola® (Large), Hi-C® Orange Lavaburst® (Large).
Cardi and Offset encouraged their fans and McDonald’s lovers to try their new meal “especially with that BBQ sauce,” as stated by the WAP rapper.
But according to reports, franchise owners are not thrilled about McDonald’s partnership with the hip hop couple. Apparently Offset and Cardi B’s lyrics are not family friendly and are in fact breaking McDonald’s “Golden Arches Code.”
As the code states, “Partnerships with celebrities and influencers that have potential risk to damage our brand based on statements they have made or their positions on certain issues” aren’t permitted, including “music partnerships associated with content that includes offensive language in the lyrics.”
Sharing the news was Akademiks on Friday (March 3). Over 1.8k IG users chimed in on the alleged reporting. Offset also decided to drop a comment on Akademik‘s post. The 31-year-old rapper simply commented with a cap emoji as he appears not to believe reports.
Offset appears not to be bothered by reports suggesting some McDonald’s franchise owners aren’t happy with him and his wife collaborating with the popular food chain. Offset was seen having a good time Friday night as he sat courtside as the Atlanta Hawks hosted and defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 129-111.
