MCDONALD’S SPONSORS LATISM CONTROVERSY

MCDONALD’S SPONSORS LATISM CONTROVERSY

McDonalds

It's amazing what some good public relation dollars can buy you now-a-days.  Apparently the McDonald's New York Metro Nutrition Network (great euphamism right?) is under the controversy scope this week for partnering up with Latinos In Social Media (LATISM). Critics like author Odilia Rivera Santos point out the almost blatant disregard for health and socio-economic conditions in the Latin communities by the golden arches. I mean really–sponsorship is one thing–but outright sleeping with the enemy, that's a bit too much! Here's what the valiant writer went on the Twitter record to say. We completely agree:

I'm very disappointed that LATISM would choose to partner with McDonalds, not only for the pesticide, herbicide and hormone-laded food served there but for the environmental destruction and displacement of indigenous communities on the part of the McDonald's corporation.
