A comedian has gone viral with a foul-mouthed rant against McDonald’s for giving away toy megaphones with its Happy Meals.
Furious Dee Maxwell complains about having to suffer ear-shattering noise from the moment they are given the gifts.
The rant has been viewed 330,000 times since it was uploaded to social media with the caption: ‘McDonald’s ya f****** w*****s.’
Ms Maxwell, from Kilbirnie, North Ayrshire, sits in her car as she launches into her complaint about the range of ‘Justice League Action’ toys.
She says: ‘It’s bad enough that they sell Fruit Shoots and you’ve not got the willpower to tell them that they’re getting a f****** bottle of water and some fruit instead of chips because you don’t want them ending up like a fat b****** like you.
‘But then they start geein’ them this in the Happy Meals.’
Dee then brandishes the blue and silver megaphone to the camera.
She continues: ‘Now this looks quite innocent and no’ offensive, it might be a be a rocket or a spaceship.

‘For your weans to burst your b****** head on the way home after you’ve sat in there for an hour with some other c***’s wean dain’ it in the f****** restaurant.
‘You’ve then got the long journey home.’ She raises her mouth to the megaphone and says: ‘Listening to this.’
And she continues: ‘But they’re no saying anything, they’re just going doo-doo doo-doo doo.’

At the end of the clip she states: ‘So McDonald’s, you better get them off your f****** shelves or am coming in to wreck the shop.’
Speaking about her inspiration for the clip, Dee said: ‘I was with my young two in the Irvine branch and my son was in love with the megaphone.
‘For half an hour he was screaming and making loud noises into it, and it went from there.’
On social media, Gillian Fairlie wrote: ‘Got it yesterday, lobbed it 10 mins ago while she’s at nursery.’

The megaphone is called a ‘Super Communicator’ by McDonald’s and is one of ten ‘Justice League Action’ toys.
