Residents who attended as the drama unfolded last Sunday flooded social media with support for McDonald’s, saying some youths in the area were “getting out of control”.

“They weren’t in uniform, just sitting there vaping, running around the restaurant, kissing, etc,” one person claimed.

“This is not good for business. But no matter how young they are, in grades 7 or 8, we can’t touch them and they knew it. Restaurant manager can’t even tell them to move.

“This behavior is not good for new generations!”

A McDonald’s spokeswoman confirmed the dining room was closed Monday to Friday last week in an effort to “reduce hanging out and antisocial behavior in our restaurant.”

“These measures have been taken to protect the safety of our customers and crew, which is our top priority. We have reported this behavior to the police,” the spokeswoman said.
