Police requested that a McDonald’s in Scotland stop selling milkshakes over concerns that people would pour them over Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage, according to reports.
The leader of the Brexit Party, Farage, was holding an event on Friday ahead of next week’s European elections. Police were worried that protesters would buy milkshakes from the McDonald’s that was located close by to pour them on Brexiteer’s head.
“We will not be selling milkshakes or ice creams tonight. This is due to a police request given recent events,” read a sign in the McDonald’s window on Friday.
Dear people of Scotland.
We’re selling milkshakes all weekend.
Love BK #justsaying

Rival Burger King wanted to take the opportunity to assure milkshake lovers that they would continue selling the milky drink. “Dear people of Scotland. We’re selling milkshakes all weekend. Have fun. Love BK #justsaying,” the fast food chain tweeted.
