McDonald’s Unveils New Uniforms and People Hate Them
When you think of McDonald’s, you usually think of those insanely addictive French fries and their seasonal drinks. But the latest buzz about the fast food joint isn’t about food at all. Instead, Mickey D’s is trending thanks to the backlash of the company’s new uniforms.
McDonald’s colors have been red and yellow for as long as we can remember, and you’d think the revamped uniforms would be some combination of those hues. But instead, the corporation settled for a very understated all-gray ensemble created by designers Bindu Rivas and Waraire Boswell.
And of course, Twitter has some *ideas* about it — namely, that the outfits have a distinctly dystopian look to them. They’re even drawing comparisons to the First Order from The Force Awakens and the peacekeepers from The Hunger Games (LOL).

@McDonalds it's a wonderful uniform, in doublespeak, in 1984…

Others are skipping the pop culture references altogether and just expressing their displeasure.
Hey @McDonalds your food is still gross so what do you do? Change the uniforms

With all the backlash McDonald’s wardrobe choice is getting, one thing is clear: People love color.
