McDonald’s debuts new happy meal mascot, gets bad response

McDonald’s debuted a new happy meal mascot today on social media, but the company didn’t get the response it was probably hoping for.

The fast-food restaurant tweeted a picture of the little guy with the caption, “Say hello to our newest friend, Happy!”

And then Twitter users started responding with their thoughts.

“THAT! is Scary!,” @DrZombield tweeted.

Another user, @wonkachu, tweeted, “I didn’t want to sleep tonight anyways, it’s cool.”

According to the McDonald’s news release, Happy is a “character that brings fun and excitement to kids’ meals while also serving as an ambassador for balanced and wholesome eating.”
