DJ Khaled Upset at McDonald’s After Going to Five Restaurants Until Finding One That Had Happy Meals
Yesterday (April 30), DJ Khaled posted a series of videos on his Instagram page detailing his father-and-son day with Asahd. In one clip, the Miami producer is announcing to his 26 million followers that it’s Happy Meal Saturday and he’s going to McDonald’s to get a Happy Meal for his son.
In the next clip, Khaled is outside a McDonald’s drive-thru window where workers are ecstatic to see the “Wild Thoughts” hitmaker. However, Khaled is upset that he had to travel to five different restaurants just to get a Happy Meal for his son. “We went to every McDonald's; they have no Happy Meals nowhere,” he said. “I don’t know why McDonald's don’t have Happy Meals.”
“Mcdonalds please we need more happy meals; the kids want happy meals,” DJ Khaled wrote in the caption. “Bless up and love @mcdonalds just want y’all to know [there's] no happy meals no where but the great people at this @mcdonalds got one for my son @asahdkhaled thank u.”
Apparently, McDonald’s did discreetly phase out Happy Meals on their Dollar Menu back in 2018. According to Brand Eating, the fast-food chain discontinued the item, however, it was still available at some U.S. restaurants for $3 to $4. The current Happy Meal doesn’t have any plastic toys as the burger franchise is phasing out plastic with the goal of a more sustainable Happy Meal by 2025.
Hopefully, McDonald’s will give DJ Khaled a call so he can help them promote their fun and eco-friendly Happy Meals for kids to enjoy.
