PETALING JAYA: Anti McDonald’s protesters taunting a worker at one of its outlets here have come under shelling from netizens after a video of it went viral on Facebook.
The three-minute clip was shared by “Friends of Barisan Nasional” and “Kongsi Video” Facebook pages, both of which had condemned the act, saying that this was not the right way to stage a boycott of the franchise.
In the video, three youths were seen pulling up to a McDonald’s drive-through counter in their car and ordering some food.
Throughout the video, they were heard laughing and cheering, repeatedly saying that they were about to pull a prank.
When it was their turn to pay for their food, they screamed anti-Israeli sentiments at the female cashier before driving away.
The location of the McDonald’s outlet in the video could not be determined.
Criticising the youths, Facebook user Mohd Norazli said this was not the proper way to carry out a boycott.
“Even if you want to boycott, do it respectfully. The staff are also Malays,” he said.
Expressing her sympathy towards the McDonald’s cashier, A Rabian B Reeze said she was just working hard to put food on the table.
“But she was embarrassed and played out by our own people. We are Malaysians. Stand through for our people first. What is the point in hurting our people just to condemn those of other countries?” she wrote.
Cindy Chan said she pitied the cashier, adding that it was not her fault.
Why hurt our own people?
