3 Burger King Employees Fired Over Picture
Three Burger King employees have been fired over a viral photograph of a worker standing atop opened bins of lettuce at the Cleveland-area fast food joint.
The funky photo was reportedly taken as a joke at the Burger King in Mayfield Heights, Ohio.
It was posted online earlier this week on 4Chan.com with the caption, “This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King.”
Readers angry about the grimy grub quickly tracked down the restaurant’s location through GPS data embedded in the photo and reportedly hassled the branch manager.
Burger King Corp. said it was “taking the issue very seriously” and won’t tolerate employees violating the chain’s strict procedures for handling food.
