Few days, back an employee at McDonald's Pune restaurant threw out street kid, saying “We don't allow these people inside!”
Causing an outrage ever since the incident was reported through a FB post, people all over social media demanded immediate action.
The kid, Akash, a balloon seller was denied entry and was subjected to such discourteous treatment just because he was poor and shabbily dressed.
What really amazes us that if somebody is paying to buy the food, what right does the owner of that place have to interfere?
He wasn't stealing or begging the employees, or to say broke their serenity inside the premises. So what right did that employee has to act in such a way?
And isn't McDonald's known for employing the students and needy ones through out the world? This high-handedness of these global chains exposes their true intent
Not just that, the employee not only threw the kid out but also rudely behaved with the woman who accompanied her to the joint. She took to the social media to expose their ill-behaviour.
Nevertheless, a security personnel involved in throwing the kid out has been for now suspended and the outlet has been shut.
Pune police officials have asked the authorities at the Jungli Maharaj road outlet of the the fast food chain to keep the restaurant closed.
McDonald's India in a statement reassured that all their employees will be re-trained.

Here is the complete account of the incident by the woman:
10th Jan, 2015
We went and got ourselves some coke floats... when we came out a poor kid started asking for some.
So since it's not very exp i decided to buy him a fanta float.
I asked the kid if he would like to come in with me and stand in the line to purchase it by himself... he agreed.
i took him in and he stood in the line. Of course I accompanied him.
immediately a worker from Mc Donald's came and pushed and threw the kid out!
I told him that it's me who got him in to buy him a fanta float.
Well he was extremely rude and told me that these kind of people are not allowed inside!
Any which ways i bought him the stuff and gave him.
NOW: i need to know who are THESE KIND OF PEOPLE?
so poor kids are not allowed?
Even though i accompanied him?
I was paying?
did i ask for free?
Worse not anyone from the public even bothered to stop or even raise a word.
I clicked this picture right outside their restaurant.
