New York – Charles Ramsey, who helped rescue three women from a house in Cleveland after they had been missing for several years after being kidnapped as teens, released a statement this week saying he is not endorsing the restaurants that have offered him free burgers. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Ramsey, who was offered free burgers for life by the restaurants, and also had a burger named in his honor, stated through his attorney Friday, “I never told these people they could use my name for this.”
The free food offers were made following Ramsey’s noting in a televised interview that prior to the rescue he had been eating at McDonald’s.
Scott Kuhn of the Driftwood Restaurant Group is quoted by the AP as stating in response to Ramsey’s request that his name not be used in endorsing the burger named in his honor, “We are saddened to hear that Chuck did not take this — or the offer of so many Cleveland restaurants to give him free meals — in the spirit we intended.”
