Awesome. McDonald’s evidently listened to Twitter users like this one:

Are the flacks at @mcdonalds or @mcdonaldscorp asleep? Why doesn't Charles Ramsey have free Big Macs for life already?

As Twitchy reported, Mr. Ramsey’s employer tweeted out praise for the hero earlier today. The Cleveland man became an instant Internet star yesterday, after he heroically helped Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight escape from where they had allegedly been held captive for a decade. His relaying of his tale, which included discussion of his McDonald’s chow-down, went viral, for good reason.

Some weren’t pleased with the McDonald’s tweet.

@McDonaldsCorp Nothing like being the media whores that you are McDonald's!! This still doesn't make your food any more appealing!!

I can't believe @McDonaldsCorp is trying to benefit off these kidnapping a by saying they will contact that Ramsey clown. #disrespectful

Clown? He is a hero and he deserves praise and a nice offer of an advertising gig, at the very least.

Most loved the bit of savvy social media interaction with shout-out to viral hero Charles Ramsey.

Indeed. A well-deserved pat on the back, and perhaps some future compensation, for a hero.
