McDonald’s responded Monday to a poem “The McDonald’s Man” presented as Kanye West’s work in Frank Ocean’s zine “Boys Don’t Cry,” released Saturday at pop-up stores in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and London.
The poem featured lines like “I don’t trust no food that smells that good man,” and “Even the McRib was jealous of the fries. I could see it through his artificial meat eyes.”
West’s poem about the fast food chain was presented along with Ocean’s long-awaited new album “Blonde.” The prose, which appears in the zine on the restaurant’s drive-thru order board, personifies several McDonald’s items in an imagined political coup scenario.
