Everything DJ Khaled wants, he gets. The We The Best boss was upset at McDonald’s after going to five different restaurants to get a Happy Meal for his son.
On Saturday, April 30, DJ Khaled posted a series of videos on his Instagram page detailing his father-son day with Asahd. In a clip, the Miami producer announces to his 26 million followers that it’s Happy Meal on Saturday and that he’s going to McDonald’s to pick up a Happy Meal for his son.
In the following clip, Khaled is outside the window of a McDonald’s drive-thru where workers are overjoyed to see the ‘Wild Thoughts’ hitmaker. However, Khaled is upset that he had to go to five different restaurants just to get a Happy Meal for his son. “We went to all the McDonald’s; they don’t have Happy Meals anywhere,” he said. “I don’t know why McDonald’s doesn’t have Happy Meals.”
“Mcdonalds, please, we need more happy meals; kids want happy meals,” Khaled wrote in the caption. “Bless and love @mcdonalds, just want you all to know [there’s] no happy meal anywhere but the great people at this @mcdonalds got one for my son @asahdkhaled thanks.
In the final clip, DJ Khaled delights the cashiers of Mickey D’s with his famous ad-lib: “Another one”.
Apparently, McDonald’s quietly removed Happy Meals from its Dollar menu in 2018. According to Eat Brand, the fast food chain discontinued the item, however, it was still available at select US restaurants for $3-$4. The current Happy Meal has no plastic toys because burger franchise is phasing out plastic with goal of a more sustainable Happy Meal by 2025.
Hopefully McDonald’s will call DJ Khaled so he can help them promote their fun and eco-friendly Happy Meals for kids to enjoy.
