McDonald's Restaurants of Canada has apologized and pulled a national radio ad that encouraged people to buy its fast food offerings rather than visit a museum after Canadian museums pushed back.
Calogheros said McDonald's contacted her personally to apologize for what she said was a poorly thought-out ad.
She said museums build community and foster interesting discussions that leave visitors with positive lasting effects.
"The lasting effects coming out of a museum are something that more people are in pursuit of than the same lasting effects you may get out of a fast-food visit."
The Canadian Museums Association said in a release that it had also asked that McDonald's remove the ad and has requested that the company consider beneficial ways to work with the museum sector.
