KANSAS CITY — McDonald's has started a transatlantic barbecue feud with the introduction of a Kansas City-themed hamburger in the U.K.
Outgoing Kansas City Mayor Sly James said Tuesday that the fast-food chain should "stay in your lane" in a tweet that included a picture of what he says a "real" burger looks like. Kansas City is known for its style of dry-rubbed, slow-cooked meats drizzled in tomato-molasses sauce.
Other twitter users rushed to join the mocking after McDonald's proclaimed "Yeehaw" as it promoted its "Kansas City Stack" on social media.
McDonald's says the bacon-topped burger is available until Tuesday, but not in America.
