via gawker [source]

this dude over at Burger King posted an image of him stepping in a bunch of lettuce on 4chan. obviously, 4chan wasn't taking any of that and decided to track that bitch down through some crazy FBI shit with some information contained in the image that the dude posted. they managed to find out where the image was taken, and they called the manager, telling him that some serious shit went down in the kitchen and the manager was pissed. they also contacted some local news establishments and stuff and told 'em what was up.

eventually, the dude got what was coming to him and got terminated for his one and only violation. burger king also released some statement thingy:

Burger King Corp. is aware of a photo that shows a BURGER KING® restaurant employee violating the company’s stringent food handling procedures. 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 restaurant where this photo was taken is independently-owned and operated by a BURGER KING® franchisee. The franchisee has taken swift action to investigate this matter and has terminated the three employees involved in the incident.”

i think this story is hilarious. 4chan certainly showed that dude. i always have this feeling in the back of my mind that somebody sabotaged my food whenever i go to like, McDonalds or something but that's just because i'm a loonie. now i know i'm not that crazy after all.

man. fast food sure is something, eh?

edit: here's how they obtained the location information, through the wonders of some thing called geotagging.

I personally never worked at a fast food joint but I know plenty of people that have. Yeah...that seems almost mild compared to some of the stories I've been told.

Don't eat fast food people.

That is pretty awesome and funny.

I'm not a fan of 4chan, but I'm totally cool with this dude getting fired. If you're gonna dick around with people's food, don't fucking share pictures of it.

Burger King burgers taste bad enough, don't need to make them worse.

Eat fast food people.

I agree with this idea that we should eat the fast food people.

Good ol' /b/ and their fucked up moral compass.

#9 Posted by Lunar_Aura (2778 posts) -

It's usually a good rule to eat food made/prepared by people who aren't miserable teenagers.

#10 Posted by Hunter5024 (6064 posts) -

Normally I think 4 chans rash interference is sort of annoying, but I'm glad this happened. There is no excuse for fucking with someones food, and I'm glad he was fired.

#11 Posted by Zelyre (1291 posts) -

Yup. Only fast food place I'll want to go to is Portillo's.

Their pay and benefits are quite good and their employee turn around? Outside of cashiers, I've seen a lot of the same people at the Portillo's I frequent work there since I moved to this area almost a decade ago.

I've heard an average employee there makes around $12-13 with health benefits while managers make over 50k. I think that makes for better employees, which in turn makes for better food.

Of course, even if there were food shennigans going on at Portillo's, I'd ignore it. Stack enough hot peppers on my dipped beef and I won't even taste the spit!

Give me that fast food. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger!

(but really this is the exact reason I never want to work at any place that serves or sells food. I'd never be able to eat again)

#13 Posted by Clonedzero (4196 posts) -

messing with someones food is pretty fucked up. they deserve alot worse

#14 Posted by Village_Guy (2694 posts) -

This was a little slow to hit the Giant Bomb forums.

I'm happy that person got fired, fucking with the food other people are going to eat is a big no-no.

#15 Posted by AngelN7 (2974 posts) -

That's awesome, I'll say it again the internet is powerful and it's going to become even more (Nanomachines!?) don't ever understimate it or get on it's bad side.

I used to know a guy who worked at Subway and for whatever reason decided to switch the mayo with his own "personal" recipe pretty often. I learned about this after he got fired for making tons of sandwiches for his buddies, but damn that guy was a scumbag.

#18 Posted by Apparatus_Unearth (3280 posts) -

Wow, that's.... Responsible.

#19 Posted by Karkarov (3362 posts) -

I am curious what "data" they got from the image exactly?

when i read the story, i was wondering why i didn't see it on the forums. i was puzzled that this didn't hit sooner, and i was worried that i somehow missed someone posting this story but under some weird title without 4chan or Burger king in it.

Fuck that. For 3 bucks I get a burger and large fries with free water. Cheap as shit. I'm fit, though, so I guess the usual things don't apply. But honestly, dude stepping in my salad? Don't really mind too much. Not saying it's okay; of course it's not; just saying I've eaten food from dirtier places than the bottom of a shoe. Boost your immune system, people.

#22 Posted by buft (3320 posts) -

Fair enough that seems like its worthy of praise, its kind of inevitable that somewhere someone is doing this kind of food and if 4chan can root all these assholes out then more power to them.

My respect and admiration for 4chan just got increased by 1000%

#26 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

I actually kind of agree with this.

#28 Edited by BraveToaster (12588 posts) -

There was a rumor going around that a Burger King in a base that I was stationed at had an employee (recently released from prison at the time) got mad at his manager and took a shit in the milkshake machine.

#29 Posted by egg (1469 posts) -

wait, geotagging? So that means his photo basically blurted to 4chan his exact location?

Dude......ugh.

#32 Posted by MrKlorox (11209 posts) -

First of all, never order lettuce on anything at a fast food joint unless you want a soggy bun, cold meat, and warm slimy green shit that's impossible to pick off. Also fuck shredded onions.

#33 Posted by eroticfishcake (7792 posts) -

If there's one thing this thread is doing to me it's that I really want a whopper now. Also I haven't had any fast food for at least five months. Should really rectify that at some point.

i'm not Ayane because i went back to my very first avatar in celebration of GB's 4th anniversary, which was stupid sexy flanders for some reason. it feels so weird not seeing a purple haired ninja next to my name whenever i post something. it's like i'm wearing nothing at all. nothing at all.

nothing at all.

That's an weirdly common misconception. 4chan did not make KS.

#37 Posted by ArtisanBreads (4056 posts) -

I have eaten fast food less and less over the years. It's been a nutritional thing for a while but this concern of them fucking with food has me about done with it.

#38 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

@AjayRaz: I can't deal with you not having Ayane as your avatar at all.

@Cloudenvy: i can't deal with it anymore. i had to change it. i'll switch it next year.

I'd be lying if I said that wasn't the best thing I've read all week.

That was quick. I changed my avatar once, people kept commenting on it, I couldn't get used to it, I'll never do it again.

At least it gave you an excuse to make old Simpsons references again, I literally laughed out loud at "stupid sexy Flanders"

Ajay had a Ned Flanders avatar and I missed it? That sucks.

#44 Posted by Alkaiser (371 posts) -

I wish they would focus more on stuff like this and less on horrifying anime porn. Then maybe I could listen to my buddy when he brings up the fact that he posts on 4chan without getting completely weirded out.

It was pretty surreal.

#46 Posted by kindpixel (2860 posts) -

Well, that's one karma point against an inconceivable amount of negative points for 4chan.

#47 Posted by Hyperglide (152 posts) -

4chan actually did something worthwhile? I'm... stunned.

Also that guy must be really stupid to post that at 4chan. But then again someone who works at a Burger King and steps on Lettuce is pretty stupid to begin with.

#48 Posted by SomeDeliCook (2341 posts) -

I always wanted to see someone take extreme measures to post a pic on 4chan taunting them to find out who he is. I want to see if someone could do that and get away

#49 Posted by HaltIamReptar (2029 posts) -

Not crazy FBI shit. Getting metadata out of an image is extremely easy to do. Surely you guys know how to right click, right?

#50 Posted by Ghostiet (5447 posts) -

For all the shit 4chan is, I always like it when they go "okay WHAT THE FUCK" when someone is doing something audaciously stupid and/or hurtful.
