That aside, why do you care if someone has a video of you in McDonalds? Or anywhere else the public can go? If someone's motivated enough to draw on their currently $1500 headwear they're welcome to a video of me eating my burger and fries.
Privacy has both State and Federal regulations. You can do a lot of things publicly, such as film a McDonalds from the public road. But there is a reasonable expectation of privacy within the McDonalds itself, as it is private property. As such you must follow their wishes. The same regulations protect your home as well, as it can be considered stalking, which does have legal repercussions, to film someone inside their home from within another private location, but it is ok to film someone in their home from the public street. It might be rude but if they leave their window open there is not any legal repercussions.
If you film someone within a private location that is not owned by you, you have to get approval and release papers. You can film all day long to whatever audience you want if you are in a public location.
So it isn't about you eating your burger, it is about your privacy in general, something we do need to protect.
