Kanye West’s McDonald’s Poem Gets Searing Response From Fast-Food Giant

Finally, a rap beef that’s actually about beef

McDonald’s is putting its burgers where your mouth is, Kanye West.

The fast-food giant responded to West’s poem “McDonald’s Man” with a tangy response of its own on Monday.

West’s poem enchanted the Internet over the weekend, when it appeared in Frank Ocean’s zine, which was distributed in tandem with Ocean’s new album “Blonde.”

The nonsense-laden poem, as far as it could be interpreted, anyway, was generally favorable to the fast-food company, though one line in particular apparently caught McDonald’s attention: “I could see it through his artificial meat eyes.”

McDonald’s took to the mic — well, to its Twitter account, anyway — on Monday to set the record straight.

“We’re loving the love for McDonald’s World Famous Fries and Apple Pies,” the company said in a tweet. “Like the beef in our burgers our love for our fans’ creativity is 100 percent real.”

Take your plastic tray and head to your plastic table, Kanye, because you just got served.

Hopefully, this will put an end to yet another beef in the rap world.
