Burger King Employee Draws Pig On Cop's Burger, So BK Starts Firing People

A New Mexico police officer had a drawing of a pig on his Burger King order and the company fired five workers

Clovis, NM – A New Mexico police officer ordered a hamburger at a Burger King and was given his food in a bag with a picture of a pig drawn on it.

Clovis Police Officer Timo Rosenthal was wearing his uniform during a break when he stopped at the Burger King, according to KRQE.

Not only was the slur for police drawn on the bag, but the hamburger was burned and was of very poor quality, according to Rosenthal.

Burger King said it has investigated and has found the people responsible for the picture of the pig.

The fast-food chain said it has fired five employees that were responsible for the incident, according to KRQE.

Burger King released a statement according to KRQE that stated it does not support that kind of treatment against anyone, including police officers.

There have been a string of incidents involving public safety employees being disrespected at restaurants around the country lately.

On July 26, a manager at Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse asked a local law enforcement official to leave the restaurant because the officer had a gun, which is a violation of state law.

Under Texas state law, an off-duty peace officer is allowed to take his gun in public establishments, according to the San Antonio Express-News.

The restaurant released a statement apologizing for the mistake.

Also in July, a local paramedic was denied service at a Florida McDonald’s when the worker said “we don’t serve your kind here,” according to Newsweek.

Anthony Quinn, the paramedic, posted on Facebook that he walked into the McDonald’s to use the restroom and was told by the female employee that anyone with a badge is not served. Quinn said his partner walked up to the counter to order food and was told “we don’t serve your kind here.”

The company that runs the McDonald’s apologized and fired the worker, according to Newsweek.

Good for Burger King. As cops in today's F'ed up world, a quick word of advice. Pack your lunch or buy off a food truck where you can watch what's going on. F the low life fast food employees who hate the police. There are a great majority of them.

WTF?? 5 employees in the same fast food restaurant?? What is wrong with these people?? Thank you Burger King for doing the right thing. But this war on police has got to stop!! The misinformation perpetrated by the left and the liberal media is out of control!!! Too many weak minded low IQ people believe every word they say and this is what it's come to. SMDH

Enough already

When these people are fired for doing this crap they need their names and faces posted so everyone knows who they are. You can be darn sure if it had been a racial slur we would know who they were.

If they hate cops so much, the next time they are getting mugged, robbed, shot or whatever let them call a crackhead.

Some may not be old enough to know this, but the term "PIG" was the Polices idea originally. It stood for Pride, Integrity, and Guts. It was a marketing campaign put on by LEO's, but it turned in the wrong direction.

@Enough already You are absolutely right. Any officer involved in a shooting gets their name and face put out there every time. Then their addresses! Such BS that the media protects these subhumans that do this to LEO

This is blatant discrimination. If you can freely serve people with there pants half down their asses & the disgusting underwear hanging out then the police should be allowed to be served. Personally, I'll take the cops.

Was there any concrete proof that the staff did that? This officer probably defaced the wrapper on his burger himself and maliciously framed the Burger King staff. Absolutely dreadful. It's sad we have to endure such disgraceful behavior from a LEO.

Let’s name these F’n A’holes so we can find them on their social media and they can recognized for their genius antics. It’s only fair, that LEO’s names are splattered all over the news for any little thing. Seems as what’s good for us is good for them in so many cases, so why not.

“Entitled” generation again. Their parents told them “you can do anything you want if you put your mind to it, no one can tell you otherwise”. That’s what happens when you lie to your kids and give them a false sense of positivity. Those kinds of kids are the ones who can’t take criticism, and end up harming themselves because they “think” they’re the shit.

Talk about being butthurt. Maybe just maybe suck it up? BK always has overcooked food and they use a flame yet this guy only posts a pic on SM. Getting people fired for this is poor but getting free food and a free catoring gig for a Dept all for this? That's pathetic, regular people have much worse experiences from these places and get nothing. Maybe if police stop killing and assaulting civilians there wouldn't be so much vitriole towards them? https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2019/national/police-shootings-2019/

Stop being so sensitive.

It’s a cartoon drawing on a fast food burger wrapper and you treat it like a death threat. If this sets you off, you have no business being a cop.

We can thank Obama and Holder along with the hate racist groups like NAACP, Black Panthers, BLM, and the Demorats for actions such as this occurring.

There is really nothing of any significance done by firing these people unless you name them and shame them the way LefTARD media does to good people. These are usually young punks who will just go to the next burger joint for a job without a problem.

Burger King employee " You mean I'm fired?? .....DAMN ..7 years of college down the drain. Now how am I supposed to pay back these student loans ?

I'd bet good money the cop wrote the doodle himself because he didn't like the taste or they didn't give it to him for free. Just like a couple of weeks ago when a cop accused a server of taking a bite out of his burger, made a huge deal out of it, then remembered he did it himself. I'm also not sure I'd want such a such a snowflake of a cop on patrol. Imagine, getting so whiney over a cute lil piggy cartoon when his job is to stop bad guys. How can expect to fight crime when you can't get over a doodle

Some of you people are dumber than they are, you are spouting frumperdummy exact words about the media being fake, do you not realize most of them have never read A news paper ? This is coming right out of there and your own homes.

Not sure why any cop would order food at any establishment (fast food, high end, etc) when in uniform. Even the “fancy” restaurants often higher people who tend to not like leo’s and many of them are the ones cooking/preparing your food.

Either bring food, buy prepackaged food, or go to places where you can see them making your food.

Burger King did the appropriate thing in this case. Unfortunately, that isn't going to be a deterrent for those employees. They will just pop up at another fast food place and do some less obvious and more dangerous to the next officer. Officers really shouldn't eat someplace where they can't watch their food being made. I almost always ate at Luby's or Subway.

I have to laugh at the stupidity and ignorance of some of these workers. Now they're going after paramedics too? So, anyone with a badge is now fair game for these idiots? Watch.out, school crossing guards.

OK, remember, when you're getting robbed or assaulted, call BLM. Remember, 911 "don't serve your kind here."

We don't serve your kind here? WTF does that mean? LOL!

I love to eat at places where the cops are welcome, they're the safest places in town to eat!!

You also get the added benefit of getting to know your local police, and even buying these hard working men and women breakfast, lunch, or dinner as the case may be.

People are really stupid sometimes and just don't use their heads. I'd rather have the police on my side than against me any day of the week.
