(KNOU) — A police officer in New Mexico got quite the surprise when he picked up his lunch from a local Burger King, which caused several employees to lose their jobs.

Workers preparing the meal last week, burned Timo Rosenthal's burger and drew a cartoon pig with a badge on its wrapper.

Taking to Facebook, the officer detailed his experience, adding, "Guess that was the last time I ate at Burger King in Clovis, NM."

In an interview with Fox & Friends, Rosenthal said he thought it was funny until he realized "it was out of spite."

The chain's management immediately issued an apology, axing the five staffers and offering food for the Clovis Police Department "as a gesture of good will."
