Fans call for McDonald's 'boycott' following Szechuan sauce snafu

A screenshot from an online video shows a man holding a pack of Szechuan Sauce from McDonald’s

This time the Szechuan sauce was not explicitly tied in with any project, but anyone who watches the show "Rick and Morty" knows why they did it.

It was reported this week that some customers in the United States staged a protest after McDonald's outlets ran out of the popular Szechuan sauce. "But I'm hoping that McDonald's hears the fans and we get our sauce".

His obsession, naturally, spilled over into real life. However, as I was exercising I realized this was no ordinary Saturday - this was the day McDonald's had chose to bring back the Szechuan sauce they had released for a limited time as part of a promotion for the movie "Mulan".

If the lone McDonald's in your city was hosting the giveaway but didn't have Szechuan sauce, there was no way a casual look at the site would give reason for pause. It might be known to some of you that hardcore R and M fans think that they are of higher intellect and that you only "get" the show if you're "smart", when, in fact, this show doesn't require advanced intellect to enjoy.

"And instead of being one-day-only and limited to certain restaurants, we're bringing back more - a lot more - so that any fan who's willing to do whatever it takes for Szechuan sauce will only have to ask for it at a nearby McDonald's", the company added. On the day of the release, customers waited in line for hours at the specified locations to receive their own little prepackaged cup of fandom commercialism. Literal temper tantrums were thrown by superfans who referred to themselves as "Pickle Ricks" and berated McDonald's employees, employees who had no control over how much fucking sauce was available.

The Szechuan enthusiasts also hugely missed the point of the opening of Season 3 in which (spoiler alert) Rick breaks out of prison, ruins his daughter's marriage and essentially destroys an entire world - all in the name of Szechuan sauce. "I'm not gonna try it", Bogal said, "I'm just gonna keep it forever if I get it". However, not many people who were the first 50 in line got gifts. According to a first-hand account on Youtube, customers who had waited upwards of 10 hours in line were bypassed by people who had only been there for half an hour, and the restaurant did not have almost enough sauce for all. One man left the restaurant screaming an expletive and proceeded to say "There's no more sauce!" at the top of his lungs. The company later apologized to their fans on Twitter, saying "The best fans in the multiverse showed us what they got today".

You spoke. We've listened. Is McDonald's implying that the sauce might be coming back sooner than we thought?
