Fast-food chains have come under fire on social media on several occasions for different reasons ranging from flouting food safety norms to mistreating customers. In the past few years, McDonald’s has faced flak for asking people to not feed the homeless and for cockroaches as well as maggots found in food.

The woes don’t seem to end for the popular burger destination as a new video showing an employee at one of its outlets in London asking a woman to remove her hijab has landed them in trouble.

 

 

Social media erupted in outrage as soon as the footage went viral and many people were shocked to see such discrimination in a city like London. Meanwhile the man who defended the woman was also lauded by many.

 

 

 

 

After facing backlash on the internet, McDonald’s decided to clarify its stand and apologised to the customer for what she faced.

 

This comes as many incidents of women being targeted for wearing a hijab in the past few years.
