Kanye West declares McDonald’s as “my favourite brand”

It comes after the fast food chain responded to Ye's McDonald's-themed poem for Frank Ocean's 'Boys Don't Cry'

Kanye West has said that McDonald’s is “my favourite brand.”

The rapper recently wrote a poem about the fast food chain, which was featured in Frank Ocean‘s Boys Don’t Cry magazine (which was released in a very limited edition alongside his long-awaited album ‘blonde’ at pop-up shops in London, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles). The content of the poem appeared to criticise McDonald’s food, branding their French fries “evil” and saying that their McRib sandwich contained “artificial meat”.

McDonald’s in turn responded to the poem, writing a short stanza that read “We’re lovin’ the love for McDonald’s World Famous Fries and Apple Pies. Like the beef in our burgers our love for our fans’ creativity is 100% real.”

West has today (August 31) seemingly addressed the issue further, tweeting the below:

McDonald’s have yet to respond to the tweet.

Twitter users, meanwhile, have since pointed out West’s seeming love-hate relationship with the fast food restaurant.

Read West’s McDonald’s poem from Boys Don’t Cry in full below:

McDonald’s man
McDonald’s man
The French fries had a plan
The French fries had a plan
The salad bar and the ketchup made a band
Cus the French Fries had a plan
The French fries had a plan
McDonald’s man
McDonald’s
I know them French fries have a plan
I know them French fries have a plan
The cheeseburger and the shakes formed a band
To overthrow the French fries plan
I always knew them French fries was evil man
Smelling all good and shit
I don’t trust no food that smells that good man
I don’t trust it
I just can’t
McDonald’s man
McDonald’s man
McDonald’s, man
Them French fries look good tho
I knew the Diet Coke was jealous of the fries
I knew the McNuggets was jealous of the fries
Even the McRib was jealous of the fries
I could see it through his artificial meat eyes
And he only be there some of the time
Everybody was jealous of them French fries
Except for that one special guy
That smooth apple pie
