As we’re all aware that, over the past few months, Rapper Travis Scott has been a part of a very successful campaign with McDonalds. Based on that success, McDonalds has begun looking for new celebrities as the Travis Scott campaign draws to a close.
Chance The Rapper, on Monday took to Twitter to announce why he backed out of a McDonalds Super Bowl commercial.
I was supposed to do a superbowl commercial with them. They played wit the money and when I said no, they hired a fake me. 😒😒

The tweet was in response to another Tweet released by Joe Freshgoods:
They just used me to see if it could work and I proved it could. https://t.co/FkybU6WF5y

Joe Freshgoods released this Tweet following the announcement that another rapper, J. Balvin is the next rapstar to get a menu item named after him. It’s still unclear who Chance The Rapper was referring to when he mentioned a “Fake Me”, though some have speculated that he was referring to a 2017 Super Bowl ad from McDonalds.
It’s also worth noting that Travis Scott’s collaboration with McDonalds has contributed to the recent success and popularity of the fast-food franchise, alongside Scott’s recent release of the song “Franchise” which hit the Billboard hot 100, debuting at #1
