Web users have gone and gotten themselves all gaga over another Taiwanese food worker—this time an employee at the world’s largest hamburger chain who’s been dubbed the “McDonald’s goddess”.
When thinking of McDonald’s workers in the birth land of the fast-food joint, stereotypical images of a pock-faced teenager taking orders in a puberty-strained voice tend to come to mind. But not in Taiwan. No, not there, where female staff members at the establishment show up to work in maids’ outfits and cheerleader uniforms.
RocketNews24 has directed our attention to Wei Han Xu, who’s gained legions of fans after a Taiwanese blogger called RainDog uploaded some pictures of her online. Standing behind the counter in her pink uniform, handkerchief and high-heeled shoes, Wei is not your average McDonald’s employee, even in Taiwan. That’s why she’s been called the “cutest McDonald’s goddess in Taiwanese history”.
Don’t be so quick to wave this off as another hyped-up publicity stunt. Wei has reportedly been working part-time at the McDonald’s store for five years, and she appeared in another RocketNews24 post from 2013 when the store employees dressed up in frilly maid costumes.
Wei works as a model on the side, as is documented in her frequently updated Facebook profile.
