A McDonald’s employee in North Carolina has been fired after a woman found a swastika etched in butter on her chicken sandwich.
Charleigh Matice said she ordered the sandwich at the McDonald’s drive-thru in Morehead City. She was shocked when she went to put mayonnaise on the bun and found the Nazi symbol.
“Is this a joke? Does somebody really think they’re funny?” Ms. Matice, whose grandfather fought in World War II, told a local ABC affiliate.
“Many people died because of that symbol and it’s not something that should be taken lightly. It’s not something that should be thrown around,” she added.
Ms. Matice said the restaurant’s employees offered to replace the sandwich, but ultimately ended up giving her a refund.
