McDonald's removed American flags from its restaurants nationwide in support of Antifa and the Black Lives Matter movement.
On September 15, 2020, a claim began to circulate on social media that McDonald’s had removed all American flags from its restaurants nationwide to support Antifa and Black Lives Matter. The message appears to have originated with the Twitter account @Ron4Trump38 before it went viral across Facebook and Twitter.
Misbar’s investigation into this claim reveals it to be false. There have been no recent news reports about McDonald’s removing their American flags in support of Black Lives Matter and Antifa, and McDonald’s has made no public statements to that effect, either. While McDonald’s has expressed support for the Black Lives Matter movement in other ways, they have not removed American flags from their stores nationwide in order to do so.
