A TikTok star was left bewildered after a McDonald’s drive-thru refused to serve him a vegan McPlant burger with real cheese even after offering to buy a slice in a separate box.
Vegetarian Louis Wright, 25, asked for the plant-based burger, but with ‘normal cheese instead of vegan cheese’ – which he says ‘tastes like rubber’ in Poole on Sunday evening.
But the worker denied his request over the speaker saying: ‘We can’t do that as it goes against the whole vegan thing.’
Louis compromised by asking for a McPlant with no cheese and a separate cheeseburger holding everything – meaning he would have a cheese slice to put on the vegan burger – and was allowed this option at the drive-thru.
However, this was also refused later by a worker who came to his car and said he could get ‘fired’ if put they put the slice in as it ‘goes against the whole vegan thing’.
