This Girl, 9, Scolded McDonald's CEO

This Girl, 9, Scolded McDonald's CEO

(NEWSER– Nine-year-old Hannah Robertson knows it's important to eat her fruits and veggies (more so than most;this is her mom), but she thought Don Thompson ought to know, too. Thompson just so happens to be the the CEO of McDonald's, and Robertson addressed him at the fast-food giant's annual shareholders' meeting yesterday. USA Today and NPR provide choice quotes:

  • "There are things in life that aren't fair—like when your pet dies. I don't think it's fair when big companies try to trick kids into eating food."
  • "It would be nice if you stopped trying to trick kids into wanting to eat your food all the time."
  • "Mr. Thompson, don't you want kids to be healthy so they can live a long and healthy life?"
