Former McDonald's Employee Shocked To Find Raunchy Ronald McDonald Toy

Former McDonald's Employee Shocked To Find Raunchy Ronald McDonald Toy

An ex-McDonald's worker was left disturbed by a raunchy Ronald McDonald toy he found in a charity shop - and it's easy to see why.

Let's face it, despite supposedly being a children's mascot Ronald McDonald's a creepy looking dude at the best of times.

The toy doll has Ron wearing a pair of red Speedos with an array of yellow chips poking out of the top of them, not-so-subtly suggesting that they may well in fact be his pubic hair.

Unsurprisingly the image has gone viral on the social media, with Facebook users both shocked and amused at the horrific looking toy.

One said the toy 'puts a whole new meaning to the term junk food'.

Others called the toy disturbing and claimed they needed therapy after looking at it.

For many, the yellow chips were the toy's main attraction.

Another added: "I hope those are fries and not some festering condition he's caught!"

A third wrote: "That's put me right off McDonalds chips, if that's where he keeps them warm!"

Another joked: "Is that a box of French fries in your pants, or are you just happy to see me?

"Well, this is mildly traumatising."

The figure was found by former McDonald's worker Sy Ewing while mooching around the shops last weekend in his hometown of Southend, Essex.

He took to Facebook to share his distress with others, as some accused Ronald's hunky look of 'burning their eyes' and traumatising them.

The 40-year-old said: "I have no words.

"Ironically, I used to work at McDonald's in my teens and this scared me."

Mr Ewing used to work in the fast food giant's Swindon, Wiltshire, store over 20 years ago.

He spent a day trawling Southend's charity shops and said he visited so many he couldn't remember exactly where he'd seen it.

The McDonald's mascot's raunchy look here is a far cry from his usual yellow overalls.

However, his signature white and red face paint, clunky red boots and stripy socks are all there which means there's no mistaking that it is in fact Ronald McDonald himself.

The fantasy clown has long been a firm favourite in the fast food chain's adverts and children's parties.

However, he's largely absent from McDonald's branding today, after the company was forced to pull his character from their marketing following a slew of violence in the US enacted by clown-mask wearing pranksters.

The company said at the time that the 'current climate around clown sightings in communities' means they will remove Ronald as the brand's frontman.

In a statement on the McDonalds said: "We're afraid that Ronald McDonald no longer appears in McDonald's UK advertising, but he is still very busy working for us.

"He often travels up and down the country to help promote some of our exciting new activities and visits our restaurants to make sure everyone is enjoying their meals."
