McDonald's customers create fake poster to hang in restaurant promoting racial diversity

  • In a You Tube video revealing the prank Maravilla showed off a fake ID badge he made

Along with his friend Christian Toledo, Jevh hatched a covert plan to hang a poster of them on the wall.

"I noticed there was a blank wall at McDonald's so I decided to make this fake poster of me and my friend", wrote Maravilla.

"We were eating McDonald's one day and we looked around and saw there were posters around that didn't have any Asians", explained Jevh Maravilla, a University of Texas student. Noticing that none of the photos on the other walls had any Asians portrayed in them, they joked that they should take a photo of themselves and put it up in the blank spot.

They had noticed a blank wall in the restaurant one day this summer and decided it would be cool to hang a picture there, Maravilla says in the video. In fact, it went 51 days unnoticed until they tweeted about it, which caught the eye of the Twitterverse.

In the video, Maravilla points at the pictures in the fast-food chain, saying, "There are literally no Asians on these walls".

They then edited the image and ordered it in large print via Office Depot.

Washington elite mourn McCain while Trump tweets from afar
The White House did not answer questions about whether Trump played golf or if he watched the service from afar. It's no secret that Trump hated McCain, and this feeling seems to have lingered even after the senator's death.

They even found a McDonald's shirt at a thrift store and dressed up as employees.

In a statement obtained by DailyMail.com, Pearland McDonald's franchisee Mariselle Quijano said, "We take pride in highlighting diversity in every aspect of our restaurants".

The stunt has since gone viral on Twitter, with more than 560,000 likes and 140,000 retweets to date.

'Asian representation in media is not as prevalent as it should be, ' Maravilla said.

McDonald's did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment as to whether or not the poster will be kept up. "It would be, like, a dream come true", Maravilla told KHOU 11.
