Well, this is an interesting death hoax...
Rumors are currently going viral online that the popular chain restaurant McDonald's is eliminating two big-name meals from the infamous fast food menu - the Big Mac and tasty Apple Pie.
But no worries, munchie enthusiasts - such greasy, "disheartening" news is NOT true!
The bogus announcement was initially posted on the SATIRICAL website, DailyBuzzLive. Apparently, McDonald's ultimately decided to remove several high-calorie and large-sized options from the menu, considering the chain's current "financial distress."
However, the unconfirmed report is so ridiculous, making such gossip actually humorous. DailyBuzzLive claims:
"Currently, the Big Mac has a whopping 550 calories and 29g of fat. The Apple pie contains 250 cal, and it would take a full 69 minute to walk that off! With that being said, those two menu items were not a tough decision for elimination."
The corporation's latest idea?
"McDonald's is currently testing out a new version of their slim down menu in Delaware, Little Rock, Waco, Bakersfield, Macon and Knoxville. They plan a full nationwide rollout beginning February 1, 2015."
This FAKE Twitter screenshot also went along with the seedy article:
Some avid eaters initially freaked-out online:
