Rick and Morty fans' McDonald's chaos - check out the videos

Rick and Morty fans' McDonald's chaos - check out the videos

Following backlash, McDonald's now says it's going to create more of the dipping sauce to satisfy consumer demands, Cleveland.com reported.

This weekend saw a not entirely unexpected mad dash of chaotic fast food stockchecking, as fans of Rick and Morty across the United States did everything in their power to get hold of the elusive Szechuan McNugget dipping sauce. And by the time McDonald's announced the one-day release of Szechuan sauce, tolerance for Rick and Morty fans had lowered significantly in the wake of news that some of them were harassing and doxing the show's female writers.

Maybe it was for the best that Oklahoma didn't have the luxury of lines and anger at many McDonald's restaurants on Saturday.

The sauce went viral again this year after Cartoon Network and Adult Swim cartoon, Rick And Morty, referenced the sauce in its first episode of its third season, released on April Fool's Day.

Russia-backed advertisements on Google
Altogether, this gave the Kremlin access to the largest online ad business and the largest video website in the world. Almost $275,000 worth of ads on Twitter were bought by RT, a Russian government-linked news outlet, during 2016.

But fans found themselves waiting for nothing. 1000+ people camped out to get #szechuansauce but McDonalds had 70 sauces...

"Our super-limited batch, though well intentioned, clearly wasn't enough to meet that demand", the company tweeted, in a major understatement of events.

Deadmau5 was caught off guard though when McDonald's chose to bring back a limited-quantity amount of the sauce this past weekend. Yes, really, the more zealous members of the Rick and Morty fanbase are actually devolving.

For people who think they're geniuses, "Rick and Morty" fans sure got played pretty easily by a marketing team most famous for a grammatically-incorrect jingle.

It wasn't only Justin Roiland's Rick Sanchez who couldn't get enough of that sticky sauce, and a stroll down memory lane hit a sweet spot with cult fandom everywhere.

Even the show's co-creator weighed in. "'Not cool.'. We want to make this right".

In order to make amends, McDonald's has responded to the irate fans, issuing an apology statement late Sunday.
