McDonald's Favor to Rick and Morty Fans an Epic Fail

McDonald's Favor to Rick and Morty Fans an Epic Fail McDonald's Favor to Rick and Morty Fans an Epic Fail

And all McDonald's had to do was mix a few batches of their barbecue sauce with sweet and sour.

Many eager "Rick & Morty" fans and interested foodies who hoped to get their hands on the limited edition dipping sauce were met with extremely long lines at locations around the country, which meant supplies ran out pretty quickly. Scammers have tasted the thirst for that sauce and have taken the appropriate measures to rip off Szechuan craving Rick and Morty fans.

On Saturday, Szechuan Sauce was back at select McDonald's restaurants for that day only. Some locations reported having to bring in police intervention when aggravated fans began to get aggressive.

McDonald's is admitting it botched its own Szechuan Sauce giveaway over the weekend, and promising to make it up to fans. From an outside perspective, it appears that people felt that they "deserved" to get their Szechuan sauce, and that justified some of their ugly behavior.

On Saturday afternoon, McDonald's apologized for the problem.

It's not every day that a cartoon series is blamed for causing adults to storm a restaurant chain demanding a product that has been out of stock for two decades.

Wubba lubba grub-grub, it looks like the world is still gripped by Szechuan sauce fever thanks to a one-off joke by Adult Swim's Rick and Morty.

As for the show, Rick and Morty has just ended its third season, and a fourth season is said to come after a "really long time". Someone even found a tub of the original sauce and sold it on eBay for more than $14,000. With various Kickstarter campaigns and DIY recipes, we stopped just short of burning effigies of Ronald, Grimace, and the Hamburglar outside the McDonald's headquarters in an aim to bring back Szechuan sauce. In Los Angeles, there was at least one McDonald's that was overrun by fans who demanded to get the Szechuan sauce.

In a statement posted on Twitter, McDonald's said Szechuan sauce will be back this winter. I don't think the internet could survive another sauce riot.

The dipping sauce was released in McDonald's outlets in the United States in 1998, as part of a promotional tie-up with Disney's Mulan film, which was released that year.
