Burger King employees had served food to a police officer with a pig drawn on it
A police officer in New Mexico was humiliated when a Burger King employee drew a cartoon pig on the wrapper of the order. The employee intended to play a joke but it cost them their jobs. The police officer posted a picture on his social media account while showing the wrapper that he received from Burger King along with his order from a restaurant in Clovis.
A cartoon pig was crudely drawn on the wrapper and the photo had the text, “When you order food in uniform.” It was not just the wrapper that was defaced, but the officer has claimed that the food appeared to be burnt. The picture was uploaded on Facebook by Timo Rosenthal and captioned it, “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 spokesperson of Burger King did his best for damage control and released a statement and said, “What occurred is unacceptable and not in line with our brand values. When made aware of the incident, the restaurant owner immediately reached out to the officer involved to apologize and terminated the team members involved.” The statement also continues to say what steps the restaurant is taking to make peace with the local law enforcement and added, “The restaurant is offering free meals to uniformed officers and will provide a catered lunch to the police department as a gesture of goodwill.”
On the other hand the chief of Clovis Police Department expressed his disappointment to a leading daily and added that a law enforcement officer was treated in a disrespectful and derogatory way. Burger King is a US based global chain of hamburgers and has its headquarters in Miami Dade County, Florida.
