Fact Check: AI-Generated Image Falsely Shared As McDonald’s New Cow-Themed Logo 


A graphic image showing a cow’s head and meat, resembling the McDonald’s logo, is widely shared on social media, claiming that it represents the newly revealed logo for McDonald’s in the US. 

The image is shared on Facebook with a caption: “अमेरिका में मैकडोनाल्ड का नया logo.* सरकार की तो मजबूरी है इसको ना बंद करने की, क्योंकि नेता लोग तो रिश्वत खाते हैं । हिंदुओं की क्या मजबूरी है इस गाय का कत्ल करने वाली कंपनी का सामान खाने की।” (English version: see below.) 

Here’s the link to the above post


NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim, and found it to be FALSE. 

Upon searching official McDonald’s handles across social media platforms, no evidence was found to support the claim that the circulated image, resembling the McDonald’s logo with a cow’s head and meat, represents the newly revealed logo for the fast-food giant in the US. Furthermore, no credible news reports have been located to substantiate the assertions made in the viral posts regarding this particular image.

The image was also shared by the official Twitter account of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), dated December 11, 2023. PETA has credited the photo to a person named Itzhak Garbuz with a caption: “If McDonald’s marketing was accurate.”

Also, a Facebook user, named Itzhak Garbuz, had originally posted the photo on September 19, 2023, with a description: “One of the most powerful tools currently in the world of Artificial Intelligence allows you to influence the creation of the image not only through text but also through a simple image such as a logo. This requires the model to create the image I requested but taking into account the contours of the logo. Many choose to take different brands and glorify them while combining optimistic and inspiring images. I’m less…”

In response to a user inquiry about the software used to create the image, Garbuz shared specific details about the tools he used in the comment section.

Thus, we can conclusively say that an AI-generated image is falsely shared as McD’s new cow-themed logo in the US.
