Several employees at a Burger King in New Mexico are out of a job after a uniformed police officer was served a burger with a pig drawn on the wrapper.

However, when the Clovis Police Department officer opened the wrapper, he saw that his meal appeared to be deliberately overcooked. His Facebook post about the incident has racked up more than 3,700 comments and 1,400 shares.

A Clovis, New Mexico, police officer ordered a burger at the restaurant during a workday break while he was in uniform last week. He also says the patties were burned, and the burger was of very poor quality. Someone drew a pig on his burger wrapper and a photo of it has received a lot of attention on social media.

"I don't blame Burger King at all; it's the fault of a few people that work there", Rosenthal said.

"I don't think it's a joke, I think it's a terrible way to treat a man in uniform".

The vice president of Burger King in Clovis said in a statement that the franchise does not tolerate that kind of treatment from law enforcement officers or anyone else.

"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 spokesperson said.

When he received his food order, Officer Timo Rosenthal noticed that his burger was wrapped in paper with a pig drawn on it.
