  1. …nah, it doesn’t work that way in the upper echelons, there’s something ELSE, it’s a #meetoo or they found out he (gasp!) donated to TRUMP…

  2. I’d expect a pair of minimum wage workers would have been given a warning first not fired outright. McDonald’s board must be frightened of the “me too” movement.

  3. Don’t the McDonalds executives have a secret stash of cash for paying off these ladies. If he was in Congress this would have been taken care of very quietly.

    “Ya don’t fish off of the company pier.”

    …but she was the only one who could get his Secret Sauce…

  5. …He told her had a whopper and it turned out to just be a big mac…
    …He now realizes that he should have bagged his own fries…
    …He gave up one of his McRibs and only got an Eve…
    …The hamburgler did some revenge porn….

  6. He should go to the microphone and pull a [now disgraced] Katie Hill: “I did nothing wrong and this is a calculated hit job by the Left.”

    Oh wait…that won’t work, he’s male.

  8. McShame!

    (Hey, I don’t eat there and I don’t really care. Many CEO’s in corporate America need to be thrown in the deep fat fryer anyway. Let’s see, Facebook? Google? Boeing?…)

  9. Given that most execs take options on their company as a major part of their compensation, Easterbrook isn’t going to bad mouth Ronald.

  10. With a Salary of $21,761,052 last year, he should be OK.
    Also, with a salary like that, I would do my best to tough it out for a month or so, and you would never see me again.

    “…just blame it on Trump, everyone ELSE does…”

    Thinking that’ll happen before the day is out…CNN needs a new line of attack, old ones are getting a bit stale.

  12. “‘With the firing of Steve Easterbrook, we now know why,’ she said. ‘It’s clear McDonald’s culture is rotten from top to bottom. McDonald’s needs to sit down with worker-survivors and put them at the center of any solution.'”

    Oh do shut the fuck up. “Worker-survivors” my ass. Some trailer trash fry-twat who got tired of diddling the night manager and squawked to HR isn’t going to come up with any “solutions” to a problem nobody gives a shit about. Easterbrook was an idiot for banging the receptionist (or whatever form of corporate drone she may be) instead of paying for high-dollar call quim. When you make millions of dollars per year, you’re supposed to rent it to keep it at arm’s length. I don’t care if she can suck a bowling ball through surgical tubing, she still ain’t worth millions of bucks.

  13. Cmn¢¢guy – he made $21,761,052 last year and his burgers won’t even decompose in an Iowa compost pile. I’d say the guy and his minions are experts of putting one over on people.

    America: home of unmatched corporate scams.

  14. There’s something fishy here, and it’s not just the filet-o-fish. He’s divorced, and it’s a consensual relationship. I know companies disapprove of that, but fired? There’s got to be more to the story. First, the paramour has to be a woman; if it were a guy then the CEO would be praised. My guess is she is married and the husband issued threats. Either that or he set her up in some lucrative position (in addition to other positions he put her in).

    “…I don’t care if she can suck a bowling ball through surgical tubing, she still ain’t worth millions of bucks.”

    …but that WOULD be entertaining and they could sell tickets, so maybe in THAT way it COULD be worth millions IF it’s repeatable…
