It seems like the fast-food giant, McDonald’s, is quite strict about its rules and regulations. Earlier this Sunday, the corporation fired McDonalds CEO from the UK. According to the company sources, Steve Easterbrook was involved in a consensual romantic relationship with an employee. Meanwhile, the American supermodel and wife to the singer, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, became part of the controversy and it’s hilarious.
Chrissy Teigen in the Line Of Fire
The corporation’s representatives shared the news of pushing Easterbrook out, earlier this Sunday. The McDonalds CEO wrote this in an e-mail:
Given the values of the company, I agree with the board that it is time for me to move on.
The corporation took up the matter and after a thorough review, voted on ousting him. According to the spokesman, he will not remain the part of the board of directors as well.
Now, you must be thinking, how on earth did Chrissy Teigen get involved in all of this? Well, to be honest, even she didn’t know until the pictures of the ousted CEO and herself started surfacing on the internet. Apparently, the pictures of Easterbrook used in the headline had Chrissy Teigen and the mascot, Ronald McDonald in it. That created a few misunderstandings.
Instead of getting angry, Chrissy Teigen took the matter to Twitter, in a rather comic fashion:
Whoa whoa whoa why am I in this headline photo lmao pic.twitter.com/c7yJoUHM1U

A professor at University of Richmond, Carl Tobias, had this to say about the MeToo movement, in wake of this controversy:
McDonald’s decision to act may be a sign of progress on workplace issues that have come to light in the #MeToo era.
Other companies don’t always act on that kind of information or fire their CEO for that, and so it seems like they trying to enforce a pretty strict policy in this situation.
Let’s see if the McDonalds stock faces loss by this incident or not. We all know Chrissy Teigen’s life isn’t!
