Chilli or McDonald's during pregnancy: is it bad?

So in one of my local community pregnancy groups someone shared their problem about not being able to go toilet for 4 days and i replied with when simple laxatives didnt work for me I had a big mac and thickshake as i couldnt go doctors yet and it worked. Also I said my friend who couldnt go 5 days had really hot chilli sauce with jalapeno poppers and it helped her. Next day I got a notification saying my comment has been removed, did I give bad advice? Are these food options worse than laxatives? I’m 10 weeks pregnant and craving a thickshake now!!
