McDonald's just had to cancel a nugget party because 3000 people were going to turn up

Fact: everyone loves nuggets. Even people who don’t eat meat are fans of good old Quorn fake-chicken nuggets: that’s how good they are. Case in point: the most retweeted tweet ever? The nuggs guy. More than 3 million people united in a common goal to get a guy his nuggs. Truly beautiful stuff.

Unfortunately, not everyone looks so kindly on a nugget-centric quest – namely the killjoy Kingsland Road branch of McDonald’s in Dalston, London. They’ve just cancelled a 3,000 people strong “nugget party” due to happen on their roof terrace because of so-called “safety reasons”. 

The Facebook event – called ‘Dalston McDonald’s Summer Terrace Party – had nearly 3,000 attendees and 5,600 who said they were “interested”.

“Dalston McDonald’s now have an outdoor roof terrace. Bring nuggets. Limited seating available.”

But APPARENTLY 3,000 people on a roof terrace made for around 40 people was “unsafe”, and McDonald’s cancelled the event.

Stupid sexy nuggets

“Okay so Maccers have emailed us and they're pretty pissed off,” the event organisers wrote. “They're even suggesting to stop serving nuggets on that date which ruins the ENTIRE PLAN.”

“So we gotta pull the plug on this people.”

A spokesperson for McDonald’s said the restaurant is “usually more than happy to host a party” but that they “tend to be for our Happy Meal customers and involve face painting and character visits.”

“Our outside terrace in Dalston is a small seating area designed for up 20 customers to eat and enjoy their food with friends and family. We’re sorry to disappoint those who were planning to attend but we don’t have a licence for such an event, and for obvious safety reasons, Turn It Up has kindly agreed to cancel their unofficial party.”
