Pune, Jan 17: In a shocking incident, a poor kid was thrown out of the McDonalds restaurant in Pune when he tried to purchase a Fanta float in the outlet.
The incident came to fore after a lady posted the details of the entire incident on Facebook.
The lady then took the boy into the McDonalds outlet to buy him a Fanta float.
She took the kid along with her inside and asked him to stand next to her in the queue.
But soon, an employee (restaurant staff ) came towards the kid and immediately pushed and threw him out of the restaurant saying, "These kind of people are not allowed inside."
When people protested, the worker said such people are not allowed inside.
The lady still bought the child a Fanta float, and offered it to him outside the restaurant.
The Mcdonalds has received huge flak for the incident.
Reacting to the incident, McDonalds India has assured a fair probe into the incident and issued a statement saying, "We are investigating internally an issue that has been reported on an incident involving a street child. We wish to affirm that we treasure and respect everyone in equal measure and do not support any form of discrimination."
