Burger King Under Fire for Shocking Billboard

EPHRATA, Wash. (WRIC)—Burger King is
apologizing for a message displayed on a billboard at one of its Washington
state locations.

The billboard reads, “Now Hiring.
Must Be Mexican,” and a photo of the sign has gone viral. The fast food giant
claims the message was put up by a disgruntled employee who worked at the
location last summer.

Burger King apologized on its
Facebook page, saying, “The sign in question was posted briefly last summer,
without approval at a franchise-owned and operated restaurant. Please know the
franchisee has informed us that the employee who posted and photographed the
sign was immediately terminated as a result. The Burger King team is dedicated to
diversity and inclusion.”
