If you thought the Big Mac was dead, you were mistaken!
Social media errupted when website dailybuzzlive posted a tweet and a statement from McDonalds saying that the company was removing 8 items from their menus. Their staple, the Big Mac was supposed to be one of them.
We sadly report that none of the story was true.
Fans of the Big Mac immediately took to Twitter to demand a response from the fast-food giant. The company would go on to deny the rumors that the Big Mac is going m.i.a., even though they will be removing some items and the super-sized option from menus.
NBC Chicago confirmed the news:
Starting next month, McDonald’s USA President Mike Andres said McDonald’s will cut eight items from the menu and reduce the number of Extra Value Meals from 16 to 11. CEO Don Thompson and Andres didn’t say exactly what will get the axe, but they noted favorites like the Big Mac likely won’t disappear anytime soon.
