McDonald's Was Criticized For Opening Near The Vatican, But Its Response Is Amazing

We're lovin' this.

The Vatican is one of Earth's holiest sites, so it's no surprise many people were unhappy when it was announced that a McDonald's would be opening nearby

To be fair, lots of businesses surround the complex that makes up The Vatican, but Mickey D's drew particular ire over this new location, as some misunderstood it to be opening inside the Catholic Church's hallowed halls.
