McDonald's Denies Prof's Claim Staff Attacked Him For Wearing Computer Eyepiece

Sparrowvsrevolution (1926150) writes "In an update to a story posted on Slashdot earlier this week, McDonald's has responded to the claims of Steve Mann, a University of Toronto professor and augmented reality pioneer who says McDonald's staff in Paris assaulted him tried to pull off a computer eyepiece he's worn for decades, then threw him out of the restaurant. McDonald's confirms that Mann was ejected from the premises, but denies that there was a "physical altercation" with staff or that they destroyed any of his property. That last claim is especially dubious, since Mann has posted photos taken from his eyepiece that show McDonald's staff ripping up a doctor's note that he showed them to explain his need to wear the device.

The company still hasn't explained why Mann was removed from the restaurant, but Mann has speculated that it has a policy against recording."
