Hibernian star Jason Cummings banned from Mcdonald's for McMuffin attack

Published Add your comment

Hibernian striker Jason Cummings has been banned from an Edinburgh McDonalds for throwing McMuffins at the staff.

The 19-year-old striker allegedly hurled abuse at the McDonald’s staff and customers with a group of his friends in an angry altercation that led to the McMuffins being thrown around.

The situation left the striker with egg on his face as he was dropped for Hibernian’s game with Dumbarton at the weekend. Hibs won the game 3-0 without their star striker and it led to speculation that he was dropped by the manager as a result of some internal discipline fro the incident.

"We take antisocial behaviour very seriously”

Unacceptable behaviour

Not only was the striker dropped, but he faces further punishment as he sadly won’t be able to visit the Gorgie Road branch of the fast-food chain.

A McDonald’s spokeswoman told the Daily Record: “Following behaviour deemed to be unacceptable, we are in the process of writing to this individual, informing him of our decision to ban him from Gorgie Road restaurant, we take antisocial behaviour very seriously.”

A premeditated McAttack

The striker didn't act alone as it is believed a group of his friends were with him and were also involved in the throwing of McMuffins as well as verbally abusing the staff and customers.

Cummings has hit the target 12 times for Hibernian this season but hitting a McDonalds worker with a McMuffin was enough to keep him out of the Hibs squad for a week. They clearly didn’t miss him as they scored three, but surely he will be put back in the squad for their next game, after all it was only a McMuffin.
