On November 10th, 20/20 aired a shocking story about a teen girl who was strip searched by her bosses at McDonald’s. The manager was told to do this by a fake cop on the phone. What’s worse is that it was all caught on video. (watch 20/20 video clip)
The manager of the McDonald’s left a non-employee, her fiancé, to watch the girl and he made her do
humiliating things as ordered by the person on the phone. First of all, you only get stripped searched in jail. Why would a fast food manager think it's ok? McDonald’s mailed a response to 20/20 stating, “This malicious hoax was perpetrated by individuals who do not
represent our brand...” This all happened a few years ago, but the story just aired.
The person behind the calls, had been making calls like this for years, but they didn’t have enough evidence to find him guilty. Wow, what a crazy story. How does a company like McDonald’s handle this kind of publicity? The girl in the video is suing for $200 million. How do you fix something like this? Advertising won't help. Read the full story.
