McDonald's arranges Hari Raya surprise for young fan with mild autism after Stomp report

Fast food chain McDonald's made Hari Raya extra special for one of its biggest fans after Stomp reported on a touching video of him getting emotional when surprised with his favourite meal.

The video of nine-year-old Adam Bin Mohammad Irwan bursting into tears when his mother bought him a McDonald's meal after the chain re-opened following a three-week closure touched the hearts of netizens all over the world with his big reaction and genuine tears of joy.

Adam's mother Madam Wati had told Stomp the reason for his "overreaction" was because he has mild autism and sensory issues.

The Pathlight School student's all-time favourite meal is McNuggets with fries and iced Milo.

On Hari Raya (May 24), Adam and his family received another special delivery from the manager of McDonald's Pioneer Mall outlet Mr Alan.

Thank you McDonalds for the Hari Raya treat! We shared the goodies with our neighbours too. Thank you stomper Fyza and Stomper Journalist @farahdaley for publishing Adam’s 1st reaction video. As Wati once said, “Let’s all be kind to one another. The world is already a crazy place. Spread love not hate.” Here’s wishing all our muslim friends and family, Selamat Hari Raya! Peace #mildautism #sensoryissue #highempathy #pleasebekind #spreadlovenothate #rezeki #loveyourself #closure

"Mr Alan came by at 12.20pm on Sunday and gave us two Happy Sharing Boxes, two boxes of their new Crispy Chicken, one McSpicy burger, two Coconut Pies and three drinks," Madam Wati shared.

"We were all sitting around when the surprise came.

"Adam was happy and shocked but thankful.

"I gave a Happy Sharing Box and McSpicy to my neighbour to spread the love."

Madam Wati added the family is still shocked at how the original video has gone viral.

"I just want to say thank you to McDonald's for the Hari Raya feast and thank you to those who have reached out to me on social media with kind words," she said.

"One guy even private messaged me on Instagram that he wanted to send over a box of 20 pieces of nuggets to us but I turned him down.

"We all feel very blessed."

Madam Wati has since started a YouTube channel for Adam in an efford to "spread love and not hate".
