A Palestinian activist caused a stir at a McDonald's restaurant in the United Kingdom. The man expressed anti-Israel sentiments, urged for the boycott of several corporations, and left an alarming item at the entrance of the restaurant, provoking fear among the customers present.

The incident took place on October 30th at a McDonald's establishment in Birmingham, United Kingdom. Soon after, numerous video clips of the incident surfaced on social media, showing a man holding counterfeit plates with inscriptions that read "PAIISTN" and "Free Palestine".

Unexpected disturbance at McDonald's

The unidentified man arrived at McDonald's in his car. He retrieved a cardboard box from the trunk and carried it into the restaurant. Once inside, he dropped the contents of the box amidst startled customers.

Following this act, the activist returned to his car, shouting explicit insults towards Israel and demanding a boycott of McDonald's, Starbucks, and Disney for their support of Israel.

It was later discovered that the box contained mice adorned in the colors of the Palestinian flag. The realization of this triggered pandemonium among the customers. Fortunately, the restaurant staff addressed the situation swiftly and placed an emergency call for assistance.

McDonald's confirmed the incident in an official statement forwarded to the Daily Mail. A spokesperson for the company ensured that all the mice were apprehended and that the location had undergone a thorough cleanup and disinfection.

"We are aware of an incident in our Birmingham Star City restaurant this evening. The restaurant has been fully sanitized and our pest control partners have been called out to conduct a full inspection," the statement read.

This incident wasn't an isolated one. A few days earlier, an anti-McDonald's protest took place in Bristol. Activists at the event accused the fast-food giant of endorsing Israeli 'terrorist activities', asserting such activities were in pursuit of eradicating the Palestinian population.
