The fast food chain unveiled a special-edition fry container last week, which features the rainbow Pride flag on the back. The rainbowfied boxes are currently available in the Bay Area and Washington D.C., where Mickey D’s sponsors pride events.

“The rainbow fry boxes are a fun way to show our support of the LGBTQ community using one of McDonald’s most iconic and recognizable items; however, these fry boxes are ’small potatoes’ in the grand scheme of our commitment to this community,” Cathy Martin, co-chair of McDonald’s PRIDE Network, said via a statement.

“McDonald’s has always been a company that has supported diversity and inclusion of its employees and extended McDonald’s family,” added Kim Knapp, a spokesperson for the fast food chain. “As an official sponsor of this year’s Pride festivities, we looked for a unique way to bring that celebration into our restaurants throughout the Greater Bay Area.”

While most have praised the company for the inclusive move, some conservative McDonald’s fans have taken to social media to express anger over the boxes.

But of course these naysayers were quickly put in their place and told to take several seats.
