However, some people were also concerned about the patient who was ordering McDonald's when they were sick and in the hospital. Many even slammed McDonald's for accepting the order from the patient. "If they genuinely cared for a customer in the hospital, maybe they should have denied the order," one user commented. "Irony McDonald's probably contributed to their hospitalization," another said.
Many people also defended the fast-food chain saying that there are other people in the hospital also other than patients like doctors, nurses, family members, and ancillary staff among others who need to eat as well. One user noted, "...sometimes all you might want is McD's fries and nuggies. Yall missing the initial point of this and focusing on irrelevant things."
