McDonald’s M’sia lodges reports over Israeli links ‘slander’

Published:     Modified:

McDonald’s Malaysia has lodged reports against those calling for a boycott of the fast food chain over its alleged Israeli links.

According to New Straits Times today, the chain’s owner Gerbang Alaf Restaurants Sdn Bhd filed a police report against more than 20 individuals and groups, as well as a report with the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission over the online claims.

“The claims coming from these parties that say McDonald’s Malaysia contributes a fund to Israel is a false and slanderous accusation.

“Gerbang Alaf Restaurants Sdn Bhd is a locally-owned company run by a Muslim individual as its biggest shareholder.

“As a company, we do not contribute, support or are involved in any political or religious conflicts anywhere in the world,” the company’s managing director and operating partner Azmir Jaafar was quoted as saying at a special press conference this morning.
.

While McDonald’s had responded to the allegations with a statement on its Facebook, Azmir said, some were purportedly still pushing for a nationwide boycott of the restaurant, hence the move to lodge the reports.

“We are doing this as a preventive measure, before anything bad happens. We are preserving the safety and livelihood of our 12,000 employees and 4,000 more indirect employees associated with us.

“There have been reports of harassment from our employees after Trump made the announcement,” Azmir was quoted as saying.

PETALING JAYA: McDonald’s Malaysia has expressed its disappointment over renewed calls for a boycott of the American fast-food chain in the wake of the United States’ recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

McDonald’s, in a statement posted on its Facebook page, said it was “disappointed” with the boycott call over claims being circulated on messaging apps and social media that it was channelling funds to Israel.

The fast-food chain said the claims were “untrue, false, fake and defamatory”, reported CNA.

“As Malaysians, we understand the disappointment felt by Muslims around the world on this issue,” said Azmir Jaafar, managing director and operating partner of McDonald’s Malaysia.

He said the fast-food chain did not endorse or engage in any political or religious conflicts in any country in the world.

Azmir said McDonald’s Malaysia would not hesitate to take action against “any irresponsible side, which continues to spread lies through social media platforms and other channels”.

McDonald’s Malaysia has faced boycotts in Malaysia before.
