Indo-British Designer Behind McDonald's New Uniform Collection

Social media went insane over the announcement with some saying McDonald's was ushering in "modern dystopia" and others comparing the uniforms to some kind of star wars costume.

"They look like imperial soldiers aboard Darth Vader's command ship", one person said.

Not that a bit of mockery is going to stop McDonald's plans to roll the uniforms out to some 14,000 restaurants in the United States - marketing them as a boon to employee "individuality".

The new, more modern uniforms are grey and black and were reportedly created based on feedback from employees and customers.

The fast food chain unveiled its new staff uniforms this month, and people are concerned that the fast food giant is speeding into a dystopian novel.

The new uniform was launched in the USA on April 12th at 14,000 restaurants across the country.

Watch how McDonald's uniforms have changed over the years in this Twitter video. And it comes with a very Empire appropriate hat.

Drake to Host First-Ever NBA Awards
The NBA never held an awards show, but the player's union attempted to produce their own in 2015 and it never gained traction. In past years, the league has made its award announcements as a release on its website.

According to a press release by the company, these uniforms were designed collaboratively by Bindu Rivas and Waraire Boswell.

Without explaining how, the company says the outfits will "improve the restaurant experience".

Boswell is an American designer who has dressed celebrities and athletes including Ellen DeGeneres, LeBron James, Kyle Griffin and Kevin Durant.

Maybe it's the shiny, metallic-like color scheme, but it did drum up lots of doomsday scenarios straight out of Hollywood: "I feel like McDonald's is trying to warm us up to the idea of robotic workers. Now when you wanna get a meal there you'll have to start with your First Order", wrote one film buff. A few consumers chimed in with approval, but even the praise was muted.
