Naturally, that's a no-no and the Mcdonald's employee demands she stops eating the food.

"If I go in with a friend during my lunch from work, they buy a burger and I take out my skhaftin now I can't eat my skhaftin cos it's not from Macd??"

@ndi_shony said:

"Sometimes you have to bend the rules Kulani. So for me I’m gonna blame the McDonald’s employee. She is right according to the disclaimer but in this case she could have bent the rules because her client bought food inside McDonald’s"

@Dman_zn hilariously commented:

"That Chicken Licken lady is wrong, even I wasn't allowed to eat my gwinya in the taxi, lapho it was still warm cabanga."

More on those who faced backlash from social media

Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that the City of Johannesburg is hoping to raise awareness about road safety while at the same time throwing a little jab at Mr Smeg for his irresponsible driving.

The City took to its official Twitter account, sharing an incredible snap of Mr Smeg in his luxury vehicle, clocking speeds of around 120km/hr all while holding a kettle in his hand.

The backlash from the City of Joburg

Naturally, the recklessness of the situation elicited a response from government officials who used the shocking image as a teaching moment.

"Mr Smeg you are driving while the other hand is carrying a kettle"

@tebzanewtral took the opportunity to air a grievance:

"Well I had no electricity in my complex from last Wednesday till yesterday, I wonder what would I be doing with a kettle"

@Yamkela__N had a cheeky question:

"For Just 5Marks When Will You @CityofJoburgZA Fix The Problem Of Abandoned Buildings In The CBD ?"

"The kettle is not wearing a seatbelt..."
