An officer with the Clovis (NM) Police Department took his shift meal break at a local Burger King restaurant on Thursday and was disappointed to discover that on the wrapper of his order was a drawing of a pig.
Officer Timo Rosenthal snapped a picture of the drawing and the image quickly went viral on social media.
In a Facebook post, Rosenthal said, "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."
Following an outpouring of citizen support for Officer Rosenthal, and comments critical of the perpetrators of the stunt, Burger King fired five of its employees suspected to be involved.
In a statement, the VP of Burger King in Clovis says the franchise does not support that kind of treatment against anyone, especially law enforcement.
