A police officer in New Mexico posted a picture of a Burger King wrapper he claims to have received from a restaurant in Clovis. His Facebook post about the incident has racked up more than 3,700 comments and 1,400 shares. Rosenthal shared a photo of the offending drawing on social media, where it went viral.
"Once I opened up the burger and saw the burnt patties and the quality of the burger, I knew it wasn't a joke and knew it was out of spite", he said.
A representative with Burger King says they fired five employees who were involved.
The fast-food giant quickly responded - canning the employees said to be behind the prank, as well as offering Rosenthal and his cop colleagues free meals and a special catered lunch, according to the reports.
The fired employees weren't identified, KRQE News 13 reported.
"I don't think it's a joke, I think it's a disgusting way to treat a man in uniform".
When he received his food order, Officer Timo Rosenthal noticed that his burger was wrapped in paper with a pig drawn on it.
A Burger King spokesperson told Fox News, "What occurred is unacceptable and not in line with our brand values". "Everybody needs to be held accountable for their own actions and that's what they did, they're holding people accountable".
