The saga began earlier this month when a guy on Twitter who we only know as "Nick" shared this horrifying photo of a nightmarish multi-colored slime/goo concoction that he said came from inside a McDonald's ice cream machine. And tbh, we believe it.
MOOD after seeing these photos:
Of course, a bunch of people joked that this is why the McDonald's ice cream machines famously are always down.
But Nick followed up:
LOL. And also: OMFG.
Nick's tweet, which wracked up 14,000 retweets in two weeks, has clearly rocked the internet to its very core. But people are, of course, skeptical. Some argued on Twitter that the photos show the "grease trap" part of the machine, which is normal and should be cleaned daily.
So Nick followed up with more photos to convince the skeptics:
Other McDonald's defenders claimed the problem isn't McDonald's—it's that this franchise isn't cleaning its machines.
But Nick fired back, claiming that cleaning the ice cream and "drunk" (drink?) machines is the managers' job.
Then, Nick decided hey, since he's already exposing McDonald's, why not go all the way? So last week, he tweeted these pics of uncooked versions of some of the chain's most popular "food" items:
More bad news, McD's lovers:
Then, PLOT TWIST: Nick gets fired. Okay, it's not that surprising.
And Twitter is roasting him for it. Apparently, going after McDonald's on Twitter makes you very unpopular.
But Nick says he DGAF. In fact, he planned this.
He went out with a bang alright!
Understandably, his former bosses were pretty pissed at him about those pics.
Of course, none of this is "confirmed" but it's all pretty believable. And now none of us can eat at McDonald's again. At least for a few days until we forget about those disgusting photos and can all go back to pretending fast food isn't basically just congealed rat poison.
Yummmm. Rat poison!
