Artist Mocks Workers Standing In Line At McDonald’s And Receives Serious Backlash

Artist Hetty Douglas recently came under fire after her comment about scaffolders waiting in line at Mcdonald’s.

The photo that was published from her Instagram story showed several men waiting in line in front of her dressed in work boots and sweats. Given the nature of their work, their clothing was speckled with dust and cement. Her caption read, “These guys look like they got 1 GCSE.”

Once news of her comment broke out on social media and online publications, people were quick to criticize her artwork, physical appearance, and attitude. Many wrote tweets regarding what they disliked about her and dozens of tweets centered around insulting her.

Several commenters tweeted about her social status blinding her to the hours of the working man, which created strings of tweets of people in agreement.

The scaffolding company that employed the men also responded with their own written statement, which was released to the public a few days ago.

In GKR Scaffolding’s statement, they said that the hired scaffolders are highly trained and are capable of working at dangerous heights and high-risk environments. They went on to say that they are proud of their employees and reminded readers that many of the multi-million-pound companies in construction were built from those without GSCEs.

Photos of scaffolders laughing at Douglas’ work were also shared on social media, which was welcomed by the applause of those on the platform who tweeted out their support.

Amid all of her backlash, several Twitter users and friends of Douglas wrote out their support for Douglas who they believed was being harassed for doing something others are guilty of doing themselves.

Artist and designer, Blondey McCoy, took to Instagram to write about the consequences that accompany insulting someone online.

He argued that those who were insulting Douglas had “dodged a bullet” and “even had the audacity to throw stones from their glass houses.”

Warren Butt, 40, who was one of the scaffolders insulted by the photo called on Douglas to apologize. 

He asked for an apology and commented on how she made him and his coworkers look like “idiots.” He told The Sun Online, “I’m just working – just earning a living for me and my son. She’s no better than me because she can draw.”

On September 8, Douglas released a statement. She began by saying that the men were bantering and rather than let it go she took a shot at their intelligence. She admitted the action was wrong.

She then spoke of the media storm outside her mother’s house and the insulting tweets written about her. She apologized to the workers and warned others to not judge people or to post those kinds of thoughts to Instagram.
