A McDonald’s restaurant in China has allegedly banned black’s from entering the restaurant out of fears that they may be coronavirus holders.
Circulating online, A video recently showed a customer holding a sign that read: ‘We’ve been informed from now on black people are not allowed to enter the restaurant.’ The store is believed to be located in the southern Chinese city Guangzhou.
The footage created an uproar on social media after the fast-food chain was accused of fuelling the rising xenophobia, particularly towards African nationals, in the country.
McDonald‘s said the notice ‘is not representative of our inclusive values’. The US fast-food giant has temporarily closed the branch, according to a statement.
