Yesterday we blogged about this mother-daughter duo that tried and succeeded to go viral with a Facebook post in which they alleged that the Clinton McDonald’s had sold them a quarter pounder with cheese with a completely raw patty:
We pointed out the five billion things that made no sense about this, and didn’t even point out that Quarter Pounders come with onions, ketchup, and pickles, none of which are on that thing. My personal favorite was their “proof” that they were not lying:
Anyway, they really, really wanted it to go viral:
At least they THOUGHT they did. Turns out when the bright lights came on they couldn’t handle the feedback they were getting. Evidently they thought everyone would blindly believe their story and McDonald’s corporate office would give them a bunch of gift cards to go away. Then she posted this:
Oh right, the good ol’ “death threats” excuse. Never fails to get you out of a bind when you’ve been caught red handed being naughty.
The best part was this – “So please, if you have shared the pictures or status please remove it.”
Yea, thats not how Facebook works hun. You just delete the post and everyone who has shared it automatically loses it as well.
Her and Mom both messaged us, and they were actually pretty polite and non-ratchet so Desk Girl took it easy on them. It’s pretty clear that they got caught up in a lie and they’re trying to ease their way out of it. She did send us the “death threat” she received though:
I hope you die is NOT a death threat just for the record. I have tons of people who I hope die. Like, if Kevin Lynch or Didi got hit by a train full of food stamps, I’d probably throw a party. But that doesn’t mean I’m gonna threaten to kill them. I just wouldn’t mind seeing them stop living. Big difference.
The bottom line is, if your goal is to go viral with a get rich quick scheme, you better make sure you’ve got your bases covered. Because if the turtle sees it, we’re gonna get to the bottom of it. It’s just what we do.
