Burger King starts beef with McD's on #BigMacDay

To celebrate their 21st birthday in Mzantsi, McDonald's have offered a special on their world-famous Big Mac burger meal.

McDonald's have been selling their Big Mac Medium Meal for only R21 since 10:30 this morning.

But the promotion, which has seen major queues, is only while stocks last and has been limited to 1000 meals per fast food chain.

Enter arch rival Burger King...

Burger King has come out offering a swap deal for disappointing customers left with lackluster lunches.

The #Swhopper deal gives free Whopper burgers to tweeps who have taken and uploaded a picture of their unpalatable food.

And sure enough, some McDonald's meals have been traded in. Oh, the shade.
