McDonalds bans overweight people from it's commercials
McDONALD’S has been accused of super-sized hypocrisy after banning fat people from new TV ads.
In a leaked memo, the casting company providing actors was told to ensure they were all were small fry.
The importance of having no fat people was even outlined in capital letters.
It read: “Because this is McDonald’s, it is important that all artists submitted to us are NOT FAT OR OVERWEIGHT in any way.”
Capataz Casting yesterday held auditions in Central London for the advert, in which a “dull, regular guy” turns into a superhero.
Boss Simon Allen told staff: “He should be skinny and geeky and must not be fat or chubby in any way.”
