VIDEO: MCDONALD’S FEATURES SOUTH AFRICAN ORPHANS IN NEW COMMERCIAL, FAST FOOD GIANT ACCUSED OF EXPLOITATION

In a new South African McDonald’s commercial children from the Sakhumzi orphanage in Cape Town can be seen paying a visit to a McDonald’s restaurant. But the fast food chain has been accused of exploiting a concerning issue.  (Click here to read) I would like to know if the children and the nurse (seen at the start of the commercial) received payment from McDonald’s for appearing in this commercial. Everyone knows that if you appear in a commercial promoting a brand (especially if it’s a billion dollar brand like McDonald’s) you receive payment. So were they paid? []
