The young generation of Americans are a truly disrespectful breed of bad apples.
This story solidified that argument even more.
Burger King doesn’t mess around when it comes to tampering with food. The fast-food chain reacted swiftly after five of its workers drew a pig on the order of a local cop.
Timo Rosenthal, a police officer in New Mexico, swung by the joint to order a burger for a mid-shift lunch. After driving away, he noticed the workers went a little off script while preparing his meal. Someone had taken a sharpie and drawn a pig with large eyes and a police badge wrapper. Then, when he opened the burger, Rosenthal noticed it was burned.
Rosenthal took toFacebookto share his experience with friends and family. He captioned the photo, “Well, while on lunch break (and in uniform) I ordered food at Burger King and received this. The patties were burnt and the burger was of very poor quality. Guess that was the last time I ate at Burger King in Clovis, NM.”
The post has since gone viral. As of this post, it had 1.5K shares and 4.4K comments. Soon after posting the photo, the officer was invited on “Fox & Friends” to share his story. “I saw the pig and I was like ‘Wow, this is kind of funny,'” he said in the interview.
“You know, I have a good sense of humor, I’m an immigrant, so, we have good sense of humors. But once I opened up the burger and saw the burned patties and the poor quality of the burger, I knew it wasn’t a joke. I knew it was out of spite.”
Burger King has since fired five employees that were working and involved in the officers discrimination and treatment.
