McDonalds Cuts Twista from Upcoming Tour

twista4.jpgFast food giant McDonald’s has cut Chicago MC, Twista, from its upcoming McDonald’s Live Tour following complaints about the rapper’s lyrical content. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, McDonald’s is scrambling to find a replacement artist for the tour, which is now without a headliner for six of its nine scheduled dates. In a statement issued on Friday (July 27), the fast food chain defended the decision. “McDonald’s USA made the decision following concerns raised about the artist’s controversial lyrics,” the statement read. “Although we respect free speech and artistic expression, we do not condone or perpetuate derogatory language.” Although Twista has been cut from the McDonald’s Live bill, the move won’t affect the fast spitting MC’s pockets. Participating performers are not being paid for their appearances, and will only benefit from the free promotional coverage of the shows, which will take place in the parking lots of McDonald’s franchises in ten cities across the country. Just last month, Twista came under fire for his lyrics when his name was included in a billboard campaign waged by Chicago’s St. Sabina Catholic Church. The advertisements, which were erected across the city, labeled artists such as Twista and Lil Wayne as “trash,” and slammed them for perpetuating messages of violence and degradation.

    I love how they say Twista has controversial lyrics when the main audience of the concert wouldn’t be able to understand Twista anyway

    For example, here is Twista rapping: “tsfhdsbvv fdfhd oeoie fhdksf ofjl oeuo f lfdflkdf bitch fuck you jkdhskdhsjahdjsdshdsds jkhf

    McDonald’s: Did he just say the B-word and the F-word???

    Yeah whatever *rolls eys*

    McDonalds food is giving kids high bloodpressure and diabetes.Really they killin people with that shit they call food.My only point is they have some nerve to trip off Twistas lyrical content when they serving up death in a bag everyday and don’t feel bad about it because now they offer salads and water like that other food ain’t still poison.

  • Walker V.W.

    How long ago was it that they invited him in to do the tour? 2 weeks? If they’re gunna drop somebody after like, 2 weeks, they should just not put him on the tour to begin with. Let’s think.

    Fuck McDonald’s. Still love that dollar menu though. Twista will get over it. He wasn’t even going to get paid either. Mcdonald’s loss. Go to Whataburger. You might wait ten minutes for the food but it’s the bomb.
