Burger King Fires Employees for Drawing Pig on Police Officer’s Order

Clovis Police Department Officer Timo Rosenthal speaks out on 'Fox & Friends'.

After the police officer's post, the fast-food chain told a news channel that they had investigated the incident and fired five people responsible for the incident. Rosenthal shared a photo of the offending drawing on social media, where it went viral.

Officer Timo Rosenthal was on duty and in uniform while on his lunch break Thursday afternoon when he ordered a burger at the Clovis, New Mexico, Burger King.

A representative with Burger King says they fired five employees who were involved. He also says the patties were burned, and the burger was of very poor quality.

Jim Irsay: Luck's injury more than calf strain
Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard said quarterback Andrew Luck's calf strain has become a high-ankle issue. The revelation adds to the big question: when will luck be ready to play? "But he's doing very well".

The vice president of Burger King in Clovis said in a statement that the franchise does not support that kind of treatment against anyone.

Clovis Police Chief Curt Fleming told KRQE News that he was "disappointed" in the way his officer was allegedly treated at the restaurant. "When made aware of the incident, the restaurant owner immediately reached out to the officer-involved to apologize and terminated the team members involved".

The restaurant is attempting to make amends with local law enforcement by offering up free food to uniformed police officers.

"I don't think it's a joke, I think it's a awful way to treat a man in uniform. Everybody needs to be held accountable for their own actions and that's what they did, they're holding people accountable", Rosenthal said.
