Burger King employee fired!

...after steeping on the lettuce!

A picture was uploaded on Monday which caused an employee his job at Burger King.

The photo has a caption of "This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King."

They don't know how uploaded this photo but thanks to the data on the photo they knew who the culprit was and fired him the next day.

Here's the photo's timeline:

The original post went live on July 16 at 11:38pm

  • At 11:47 p.m., another 4chan user noted that the photo’s Exif data pointed to Mayfield Heights, Ohio.
  • At 11:50 p.m., just 12 minutes later, someone posted the address of the Burger King branch in which the lettuce-stepping occurred, wishing the OP a happy unemployment.
  • At 11:55 p.m., someone contacted the news.
  • At 11:58 p.m., someone posted the link to Burger King's Tell Us About Us form, with the photo attached.

The next morning, a statement has been issued by Burger King to the public.
"Burger King Corp. has recently been made aware of a photo posted on a social networking site that allegedly shows a Burger King restaurant employee violating the company’s stringent food handling procedures. Food safety is a top priority at all Burger King restaurants, and the company maintains a zero-tolerance policy against any violations such as the one in question"

Cruel employee...tsk tsk tsk...I'm so glad he's fired! I know this is not the first news about this kind of cruelty among employees of restaurants or fast foods but I sure hope all of them get punished!
