This is why im no big fan of her, anyone who helps advertises Macdonalds especially at kids is irresponsible and greedy. People like Serena should be coming out against companies like Macdonalds for making everyone fat, not joining in with them promoting their crap.
Ah.... but she likes their cheesburgers ;)
Fast food is ok if you take it on moderation and exercise well... and yes, I used to eat there a lot, too ;) Cheap, cheap, cheap, and tastes fine

Maybe she is just holding that for publicity sake and she won't finish it
I think she may have chosen McDonald because she and Venus have a contract
with the company and its philanthropic division.

Having said, it was not a good move to celebrate her birthday with a Big MAC

I think they (Serena and Venus) also do quite a bit for Ronald McDonald organization, which is a philanthropic foundation that help kids and is associated with McDonald, the fast food company.

Having to spend her birthday at McDonalds--she totally earned every cent of that endorsement money.

She probably is just holding the hamburger for the camera and didn't eat it.

(mind you I don't even eat those, I've been a vegetarian for a lilttle more than 17 years) She's hosting some handicapped kids for crying out loud. How many handicapped kids have you and detractors treated to dinner or lunch ? :shrug:

How did you go from the first post now to this?

I did not make a big deal out of it. I just knew her detractors would jump on it to criticize her about her weight and fitness.

If you read some of my other posts I put this in perspective by mentioning Serena and Venus involvement with Ronald McDonalds charities, which itself is associated with the McDonald fast food company.



Sometime you are too quick to throw out charges without thinking through.

You also have a propensity to want to suppress information because you think people might misuse it. You blame the fact that Muslims criticized Sania’s dress code on American media for talking about her religion.

Now you blame me for inviting people to criticize Serena because I posted that she will be dogged by that picture. You do not trust people and think they can be easily swayed by a post. No they are not doing it because of my post; they are doing of their own free will.

You Goddamn liar!!! I defended the American media by pointing out that it was Sania's dad who brought attention to her attire way back in February. I even posted the article for the poster tennisrox who made that comment :rolleyes: You talk so damn much , you can't keep your bloody facts straight :rolleyes:

There is a conspiracy theory out there that McDonalds sprays liquid sugar on its burgers to make them more appealing to the masses.

hey I think a lot of religious people are religious "some" of the time but I also know some religious people have their own personal relationship with God and only answer to him. They follow what they think is appropriate for their God. I don't know which is the case with Serena but I just don't think anyone would question other religious sects for "sinning" so to speak like they do Jehovah's Witnesses.

Anyway the two funniest threads on GM are this one and the wax model thread on Kim and Justine. The thing both have in common is I guess Serena wasn't intending to give us a laugh, and the people who made those horrendous wax models actually did it seriously too.

Yes, Serena should stop eating junk foods, but it is her birthday party they are celebrating, so it would be very Rude for Serena to turn her nose up at a Mc Donald's burger. She is also sponored by Mc Donald's.

Serean just needs to exercise more.
