Fans call for McDonald's 'boycott' following Szechuan sauce snafu

McDonald's announced last week that for one-day only, the fast food restaurant would carry the Szechuan sauce for customers at participating locations.

As previously reported, McDonald's had agreed to bring back the discontinued Szechuan sauce following pleas from Cartoon Network's adult cartoon, "Rick and Morty".

The show's main character, a mad scientist named Rick describes the sauce as being delicious during season three's premiere episode. This resulted in disaster, as stores were in no way prepared for the demand for the Szeuchuan Sauce, resulting in stores running out nearly instantly and being met with hordes of angry fans.

A number of other hedge funds and other institutional investors also recently added to or reduced their stakes in the business. The stock of Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) has "Underweight" rating given on Thursday, September 3 by Barclays Capital.

Rick and Morty co-creator Roiland took to Twitter to share his concern over the issue and urge the fan base not to create any kind of rampage at McDonald's stores.

When McDonald's faced a shortage in 2011, fans of the McNuggets dip went into a frenzy, with some calling for a boycott of the fast food chain. Some of the lucky fans who managed to acquire Szechuan packets even put them up for auction, where a single sauce packet was sold for $274.99. Hopefully this time around, the fast food chain will be better prepared for the massive demand, and Rick & Morty's fans will be able to conduct themselves with a little more grace over a packet of promotional fast food dipping sauce.

McDonald's apologized on Sunday for the lack of sauce and promised to have a larger batch in the winter.
