Five Burger King employees are out of a job after playing a rude joke on an officer.

Timo Rosenthal, a police officer in New Mexico, posted a picture of a Burger King wrapper with a cartoon pig drawn on it, that he claims to have received from a restaurant in Clovis, NM.

The photo was uploaded to Facebook by Timo Rosenthal. He captioned it:

“Well, while on lunch break (and in uniform) I ordered food at Burger King and received this. The patties were burned and the burger was of very poor quality. Guess that was the last time I ate at Burger King in Clovis, NM.”

Burger King said it has investigated and has found the people responsible for the picture of the pig and has fired five employees that were responsible for the incident

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

“What occurred is unacceptable and not in line with our brand values.  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 offering free meals to uniformed officers and will provide a catered lunch to the police department as a gesture of goodwill.”

The chief of the Clovis Police Department said that he is “disappointed” that a law enforcement officer was treated in “a disrespectful and derogatory way.”

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

On the 4th of July, A Starbucks employee in Tempe, Arizona asked police officers to leave because customer ‘did not feel safe’.

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.
