McDonald’s Thai says it filed police complaint over cockroach claim

After a photo purporting to show a cockroach inside one of its sundaes went viral recently,  McDonald’s Thai has sort of responded with a lot of corporate speak and a vague threat.

In McDonald’s Thai’s representative’s response’s wording, the company never actually says there wasn’t a roach in the sundae nor denies it was the source of the roach in question. It does however cast doubt on Facebook user Witchy Amy’s story.

“McThai has inspected the transaction of user ‘Witchy Amy’ and found she bought an ice-cream from McDonald’s, Major Cineplex Pinklao branch, on Saturday at 2:37pm. The customer did not eat at the restaurant and came back 4:42pm, two hours after she had taken the ice-cream out of McDonald’s.”

Okay, but it’s less of a denial than a smoky suggestion that she might have gone home and inserted a roach into her icy treat before returning to complain.

Even more so, the statement said the fast food chain went to the police – to protect the rest of us.

“To protect the rights of consumers, the company has filed a complaint at Bang Plat station on Sunday,” according to the statement.

The statement didn’t specify the nature of the complaint filed with authorities, but outside of defamation, we’re unaware of a “lying on the Internet” statute.
