  In a move that has raised many eyebrows on social media, McDonald’s and the U.S. Embassy in Vienna, Austria, have partnered to help Americans stranded abroad.

  麦当劳和美国驻奥地利维也纳大使馆联手帮助被困海外的美国人,此举在社交媒体上引起了许多人的不满。

  Tourists can now go to any of the 194 McDonald’s in Austria and be given a round-the-clock number to contact the U.S. Embassy, as well as a phone to make the call, if necessary.

  现在,游客可以去奥地利194家麦当劳餐厅中的任何一家,并获得一个24小时联系美国大使馆的电话号码,如果有必要,还可以打个电话。

  The partnership, announced on May 10, became active on Wednesday. But it received a mixed reaction online, where users were quick to pan the U.S. for partnership with the fast food brand, which has been associated with rising obesity levels.

  5月10日宣布的合作关系于周三开始活跃。但其在网上得到的反应褒贬不一,美国官方很快就被网友们严厉谴责其与这个快餐品牌,因为它和过度肥胖症有关。

  “Can I have a McPassport please,” wrote one Facebook user.

  一位脸书用户写道:“请给我一张McPassport。”

  “Introducing the McVisa!” wrote another – in a comment that received 50 likes and “haha” reactions on Facebook. Some others were more supportive: “Thank you, I wish more countries/businesses would be willing to help others in this way!” one person wrote.

  “另一条评论写道:“引入McVisa !”,在脸书上收到了50个赞和“哈哈”的反应。其他一些人则表示支持:“谢谢,我希望更多的国家/企业愿意以这种方式帮助他人!”一个人写道。

  Others raised questions of confidentiality of private information. When one user asked whether the agreement might be a precursor to the actual U.S. embassy in Vienna shutting down, the official account replied: “Certainly not. Our Embassy is fully staffed and ready to assist American citizens in need.

  其他人则对私人信息的保密性提出了质疑。当一名网友问道,该协议是否可能是美国驻维也纳大使馆实际关闭的前兆时,官方账号回答说:“当然不会。我们的大使馆人员配备齐全,随时准备帮助有需要的美国公民。

  This partnership is only one extra way for Americans to connect to the Embassy when they are in an emergency situation.”

  这种伙伴关系只是美国人在紧急情况下联系大使馆的一种额外方式。”

  A State Department official told TIME: “The U.S. Department of State has no greater responsibility than the safety and welfare of U.S. citizens overseas … As part of our commitment to assisting U.S. citizens in need overseas, from time to time we work with private-sector and other non-government entities. Through this program, U.S. citizens in distress can enter any McDonald’s in Austria and be provided with a way to contact the U.S. Embassy by phone.”

  美国国务院一位官员告诉《时代》杂志:“美国国务院没有责任大于海外美国公民的安全和福利…作为我们的承诺的一部分,协助海外美国公民需要,不时与我们合作私营部门和其他非政府实体。通过这个项目,美国公民可以进入奥地利的任何一家麦当劳,并通过电话与美国大使馆取得联系。”

  A McDonald’s representative said the company was not being paid to offer the service, the New York Times reported.

  据《纽约时报》报道,麦当劳的一名代表表示,该公司并未因提供这项服务而获得报酬。
