LOOK: Politician allegedly takes credit for McDonald’s “Breakfast Day” promo

MANILA, Philippines - Fast food giant McDonald’s has issued a warning against people grabbing credit for their “National Breakfast Day” promo. Apparently, a political candidate from Marikina City has allegedly taken advantage of the promo.

On Thursday, March 11, McDonald’s issued an advisory on its social media pages along with a photo of a certain Ferdie Marco, who is a candidate for councilor in the first district of Marikina City.

“This is to inform the public that National Breakfast Day is a promotion solely organized by McDonald’s Philippines and is not sponsored by any other organization or individual. Please be advised,” the advisory reads.

It turns out, a promotional poster featuring McDonald’s promo and Marco’s face was shared on the political aspirant’s Facebook page.

The caption read: “Dahil mahal ko kayo LIBRE ko kayo ng Mcmuffin sa McDonald’s sa March 14, 2016 basta simula 6 am hanggang 7 am sagot ko Mcmuffins nyo sa lahat ng McDonald’s outlet sa buong Pilipinas… sabihin nyo lang pangalan ko…ganyan ko kayo kamahal…save the date! Kita-kits tayo para sa libre kong pa-almusal. 6 to 7 am lang ha…agahan nyo mga ka fb.”

(Because I love you, I’ll treat you with free Mcmuffins at McDonald’s on March 14, 2016 beginning 6 am until 7 am. You can claim your free Mcmuffins in any McDonald’s outlet all over the Philippines, just mention my name. That’s how much I love you, save the date! See you there for the free breakfast. Keep in mind that it’s just from 6am to 7pm. Be early FB friends.)

The controversial post has been deleted since then but netizens were able to take a screenshot of the “fake promo”.

According to ElectionPH, Marco is a member of the Liberal Party.
