At that time, we responded, quite reasonably even if we do say so ourselves, to the effect that:
Carol, here’s a newsflash: your company destroys rainforests, destroys the health of the world’s people, exploits its employees, destroys everything, because it doesn’t “really care about anything except that [it] make[s] a profit.” That’s what McDonald’s does.
Well, now it’s time for us to confess. We didn’t really know that for sure. We were just guessing. For all we knew at that time the corporate overlords of the mighty McDonald’s machine were all sitting around back in good old Oak Brook, Illinois, where they have pitched their mansion, just not caring at all about money cause money can’t buy them love or whatever. We just made a claim that sounded plausible and kept our fingers crossed that we wouldn’t end up in trouble. Well, we were right!
“Our main job is to create value for our shareholders, for our company, for our restaurateurs. We are not a nonprofit organization and we are not married to any one area. We are married to being a successful business.”
So, see?! What we said back in March actually turned out to be true! We certainly dodged a bullet there, eh? Just imagine if somehow in secret McDonald’s had turned out to be a freaking charity! We’d-a been so busted! It’s all good!
