The exhortation was to 'get a life and some facts', yet anyone can see that the response contained no facts at all. Now whether you call it 'exploitation of children' or not, the type of advertising that McDonalds employs is no different to virtually all advertising to children. So McDonalds is certainly no more 'disgraceful' in this regard than the rest of the world. So there is no point to be made in the first place.
