Thanks to a story on the website Daily Buzz Live, gullible burger lovers across the world have been tricked into believing that McDonald's is getting rid of their Big Mac, apple pies, and large sizes.
The tricky thing is that Daily Buzz Live features both real news stories AND a few that are satire, so it's not super surprising that people fell for the news.
"With McDonald's profits tanking over the recent months, the company has had to make some tough decisions to find adequate solutions for their financial distress by shrinking menu sizes," reads the story, which is labeled under the categories "controversial" and "news" but not satire.
