The French advertisement, which features a young gay boy talking to his boyfriend on the phone and ends with the phrase ‘Come as you are’, became an internet hit after screening there.
But McDonald’s USA’s second-in-command, Don Thompson, says the advertisement concept isn’t suitable for America.
Thompson admitted that he was a Christian with his own “personal beliefs”.
“…things … may have an implication in one part of the world and may be the cultural norm in another part of the world,” he said, referring to the ad being accepted in France.
The advertisement was slammed by decrepit and homophobic Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, who attacked the concept by suggesting McDonald’s should make a similar ads for terrorists.
