Burger King Employee Takes A Picture Of Himself Standing On The Lettuce; Tracked Down By Users And Fired!

So a Burger King employee thought it would be a good idea to post a picture of himself on 4chan standing over two vats of iceberg lettuce with the message "this is the lettuce you eat at Burger King."

Disgusted users of the site then took it upon themselves to ferret out the offender. Turns out the idiot forgot to delete the Exif data from the photo, which easily gave away the restaurant's location at Mayfield Heights, Ohio.

The users then called the local press who promptly contacted the manager. The employee has been fired.

Soon corporate got involved and released a statement: "Food safety is a top priority at all Burger King restaurants and the company maintains a zero-tolerance policy against any violations such as the one in question."

The Cleveland Scene got it when they said "Don't fuck with people's food or the internet."
