Several employees at a Jimmy John’s sandwich shop in Woodstock, Georgia, have been fired after they collectively made a noose out of the dough and ‘hanged’ one of them.
This went down in the city of Woodstock, where at least four JJ employees working on the 4th of July apparently thought it’d be funny to do a mock lynching with their supplies. They fashioned a noose out of dough they use to bake bread — and proceeded to try it out.
One white worker slips the noose over around his neck while another holds the long end up … as if to show the guy hanging. Two others are filming this … and everyone’s having a laugh about it. The whole thing is gross to watch — especially how funny they think it is.
You know who didn’t find it amusing? Jimmy John’s themselves — because the corporate headquarters responded to the video … and says all of these fools have been fired.
They write, “We have zero tolerance for racism or discrimination in any form. The franchisee has taken immediate action and the employees have been terminated. The actions seen in this video are completely unacceptable and do not represent the Jimmy John’s brand.”
Local reports say that even the manager at this location got canned — so basically, it seems like they cleaned house. Probably a good idea … a lot of bad apples we see here.
Not only were their actions racist, but super unsanitary.
