Tumblr Discusses The Reality of the McDonald's Hot Coffee Case

The McDonald's hot coffee case went down in 90's history as a goofy late-night-talk-show-level absurdity that seemed like it was about a money-grubbing lady who was too dumb to know that coffee was hot. As it turns out, the details were more nefarious than that. For more people on tumblr getting blasted with knowledge, here are tumblr users getting schooled on car safety.

    Text - favabean05 A few things you need to know about this hot coffee case: 1. It wasn't an issue of the coffee being because no fucking shit coffee is hot, but McDonald's had over heated their water to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. That's 121C. Not just hot, but really FUCKING hot. Your fancy Starbucks lattes are brewed to 150 degrees. 2. The 79 year old woman had this cup of 250F (121C) coffee between her legs when it spilled so 250F (121C) coffee spilled on her genitals 3. She got third degree burn

    Correction: Most articles report the temperature to be around 180 degrees F, which is admittedly still really hot.

    Text - siphersaysstuff MORE FUN FACTS: 9. The woman who was burned was not driving the car, she was a passenger. 10. The car was not in motion when she was burned. The car was parked so she could add cream and sugar. The coffee case is one of the biggest examples of a carefully- crafted smear campaign by a company that is in the wrong trying to hide that. brigidkeely Additionally, several people had been badly burned by McDonald's coffee prior to that case, both employees and customers, and McDo

    Text - When she was burned, she reached out to McDonald's for them to cover her medical expenses. They sent her a coupon booklet as a big eff yuu. She required skin grafts not just on her genitals but on her thighs, buttocks, and I think stomach. Like, it was a lot of skin grafts! And did you know that skin grafts don't always take? She was very severely hurt by a product that McDonald's knew for a FACT was dangerous. But nah, go on talking about how she was just foolish and greedy, that's obvio
