McDonald's Flips Its Golden Arches Upside Down and People Are Confused

March 8, 2018

McDonald's is flipping its iconic golden arches at several locations across the nation.

People who have driven by the changed locations are confused as to what's happening. The fast food giant has explained it will to honor women for International Women's Day Thursday, March 8. The company says it's for a "celebration of women everywhere."

But without this explanation, many people are confused.

Wendy Lewis, global chief diversity officer at McDonald's, said in a statement, "In celebration of women everywhere, and for the first time in our brand history, we flipped our iconic arches for International Women's Day in honor of the extraordinary accomplishments of women everywhere and especially in our restaurants." Others are applauding the company for the creative idea.
