McDonalds Sorry for, 'No Blacks Allowed' Chinese Sign
GUANGZHOU, CHINA — McDonald's was forced to apologize after a video went viral showing a laminated sign posted in one of its Chinese restaurants.
The sign read, "Notice: We've been informed that from now on black people are not allowed to enter the restaurant."
McDonald's spokeswoman, Regina Hui said last Saturday, "McDonald's China apologizes unreservedly to the individual and our customers."
McDonald's has since pledged to use the sign incident to, "further educate managers and employees on our values, which includes serving all members of the communities in which we operate."
McDonald's removed the sign, closed down the location and issued a statement that the sign was "not representative of our inclusive values."
The sign is merely one instance of increasing racism in the city, as Chinese citizens have blamed African natives for spreading the coronavirus.
Guangzhou has China's largest African community of about 4,500 individuals and according to the Washington Post, over the past two weeks African residents say they've faced forced evictions, rejections from hotels, involuntary testing without results and sequestration into two-week long quarantines even if they test negative for the virus, haven't recently traveled or had no contact with any individuals known to be infected with COVID-19.
