McDonald’s draws online fire in China for advertisement showing Taiwan ID


Netizens in mainland China have accused McDonald’s of advocating Taiwanese independence after the fast-food operator’s latest regional advertisement contained a brief shot of an ID card that mentioned Taiwanese nationality.

The hamburger ad, which first aired on television in Taiwan on January 6, included a two-second clip of a student ID card which listed the character’s nation as Taiwan.
