In a series of posts, the national branches of both McDonald's and Burger King shared their support for Azerbaijan forces in deadly fighting over the separatist territory of Nagorno-Karabakh.
The posts, shared on both Twitter and Instagram, have since been deleted.
In a statement to CTVNews.ca on Tuesday, a McDonald's Corporation spokesperson said, “Our franchisee in Azerbaijan has removed the social media content.”
