    McDonald’s criticised for using fake graffiti tags in newly-refurbished Brixton branch

    [​IMG]


    McDonald’s has been criticised for using fake graffiti tags to decorate one of its restaurants in an inner city area plagued with the daubings.


    The fast food chain’s newly-refurbished branch in Brixton, south London features lampshades covered[​IMG] with graffiti markings.


    But many locals are not impressed. One said the redesign was “a poorly thought through, corporate attempt at being down with the kids” while another said the fast food giant was “trying to card to be urban cool”. Lambeth resident Matthew Jupp said: “Hopefully this is another step towards graffiti being really dated and corporate and thus not worth doing.”

    Lee Dema, who runs the St Matthew’s Project, a young people’s
    support network[​IMG]named after a Brixton estate, told the Independent: “This is just another misguided attempt by suits to identify with ‘edgy’ Brixton. They should have opened up another outlet in Brixton Village and used Laura Ashley lampshades for all the middle class poseurs around them.


    We're closing in on FORTY years of this shitty bogus "art form."

    If you're in a McDonalds in Brixton, it's a safe bet that you're on some kind of losing streak.
