A McDonald’s restaurant in China has banned black people from entering, out of fear that they have coronavirus.
A VIDEO recently emerged online showed a customer holding a sign that read: “We’ve been informed from now on black people are not allowed to enter the restaurant.”
The branch is believed to be located in southern city, Guangzhou.
