Ronald McDonald School Appearances, 2014-2015

It’s back to school and back to business as usual for Ronald McDonald. Just months after McDonald’s CEO, Don Thompson, boldly proclaimed, “We don’t put Ronald out in schools,” the world’s most predatory clown has been spotted in schools in around the country. Any type of marketing in schools exploits a captive audience, but it is particularly insidious to send a junk-food mascot into classrooms while schools are tasked with instilling healthier eating habits in children. That’s why we’ll be reminding McDonald’s that every one of Ronald’s incursions into classrooms makes a liar out of their CEO. If you haven’t done so already, you can join the more than 10,000 people who have demanded McDonald’s immediately stop sending Ronald into in schools.
