McDonald’s in the UAE, Bahrain, KSA, Kuwait, Oman, and Qatar all released the same statement on Thursday.

The statement reads:

“We are dismayed by the disinformation and inaccurate reports regarding our position in response to the conflict in the Middle East. McDonald’s Corporation is not funding or supporting any governments involved in this conflict, and any actions from our local Developmental Licensee business partners were made independently without McDonald’s consent or approval.

“Our hearts are with all of the communities and families impacted by this crisis. We abhor violence of any kind and firmly stand against hate speech, and we will always proudly open our doors to everyone.
We are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our people in the region while supporting the communities where we operate”
