Published Jul 13, 2010Paul McCartney has been engaged in a battle with a branch of McDonald's that was displaying Beatles pictures on the restaurant walls. And the legume-loving singer has just won this particular war.
McCartney (who has long been a vegetarian) was mighty upset that the fast-food restaurant, located in the Fab Four's hometown of Liverpool, England, had pictures of the Beatles up on its walls, reports Canoe. The Sefton Street McDonald's location had put up more than a dozen pictures of the band, but after McCartney complained, they have since been removed.
Representatives for PETA, whom McCartney has long been a supporter of, said that McCartney would "never authorize his photo to endorse meat products."
McCartney first discovered the photos back in 2008 and urged fans to boycott McDonald's. At the time, a McDonald's spokeswoman said the pictures were to "acknowledge the outstanding contribution the Beatles made to both local and global culture," reports the Telegraph.
