Burger King Hints That People Should Assault Nigel Farage with Milkshakes
Police in Scotland have asked McDonald’s to halt selling milkshakes while Nigel Farage is in town, as protesters have recently thrown them at European Parliamentary candidate Tommy Robinson and Ukip candidate Carl Benjamin.
The assaults have become a viral “protest” meme against right-wing figures, cheered on by the liberal media.
Burger King apparently did not get the memo from the police, or did not care — and took to Twitter to subtly suggest that protesters can and should get their milkshakes there.
“Dear people of Scotland. We’re selling milkshakes all weekend. Have fun. Love BK #justsaying,” the Burger King UK account tweeted.
People on Twitter heard the fast food giant’s message loud and clear.
Time to "Lactose an intolerant"?
Haha. Yes I do love threating people for their political views

The burger chain’s Twitter account also “liked” multiple tweets about this being about the attacks on Robinson.
"Burger King's tweet is open to interpretation!"
The likes say otherwise. They liked a tweet about going after Tommy Robinson. pic.twitter.com/DlW0inhv4Z

When asked if the tweet was about the assault on Robinson, the account responded with “no comment.”

Earlier this month, Robinson had milkshakes thrown at him twice in two days while out campaigning. Last week, two activists targeted Benjamin with the same tactic.
McDonald’s has put up signs in their locations near the Farage event saying that they will not be selling milkshakes or ice cream due to a “police request given recent events.”
