    Tomayto, tomahto — to “uh oh.” One Michigan woman landed herself on the wrong side of the law after throwing a violent fit in Burger King, reportedly because the burger she ordered from the chain had tomatoes on it, much to her dramatic dismay. Porsha Tyler stormed into a Livonia Burger King and demanded a cash refund, WXYZ reports, as the burger she ordered included tomatoes, which she clearly did not want. The incident occured on Jan. 27. According to the outlet, the woman brought the sandwich with her and things quickly took a turn for the worse.

    WOOD VILLAGE, Ore. - A man from Portland, Oregon says he was trapped in a Burger King bathroom for more than an hour and was promised free burger meals for life in settlement over the ordeal, but now he says BK isn’t holding up its end of the bargain, so he’s suing the fast food restaurant. Curtis Brooner said he used the restroom at a Portland Burger King on Dec. 15. But when he tried to get out of the room, the door would not open, KOIN reported. Brooner said he had the receipt from his meal and called the...

Chick-fil-A would leapfrog past Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s, the No. 4, 5 and 6 chains respectively, according to the firm.

    Video & picture @ link. A black Burger King employee who went on a racist rant against a Hispanic couple she assumed was white didn't have it her way after she was terminated from her fast food job last month. The shocking dispute broke out between the employee and a man and woman waiting in a North Miami Beach Burger King drive-thru October 3. The cellphone video has since gone viral. It seems the customers requested a refund for their order after a manager touched her phone while handling their food. The employee, unwillingly to work with the pair, shamed...

    The Florida police officer denies Burger King's claim that he mistook spice mix for dirt. Fort Myers, FL – A Fort Myers police officer, whose social media post about Burger King employees putting dirt in his food went viral, is fighting back against the restaurant owner’s claims that the officer had mistaken seasoning for dirt. “I did agree that the video they showed me had no malicious activity, but it wasn’t my sandwich, Fort Myers Police Officer Tim McCormick said on Tuesday, according to The Whiskey Patriots. Officer McCormick posted a photo of his drive-thru order receipt with the word...

    A Louisiana Burger King reportedly refused to serve two uniformed officers who tried to order food through the drive-thru last month. According to the Bayou Journal, the Assumption Parish sheriff’s deputies had just finished SWAT training and went to a Burger King in St. Francisville to get some food. When the police officers tried to order through the drive-thru speaker at the fast food chain, employees allegedly denied their request. The police department’s public information officer Lonny Cavalier said the deputies tried to order chicken and were told the restaurant was out. They then tried to order Whoppers, to which...

    Fast food company Burger King Russia has been forced to apologize after an advertisement offered Russian women the chance to win $47,000 and free Whoppers for life if they got impregnated by a World Cup player. The short-lived campaign was promoted in Russia on Tuesday via social media platform VK -- Russia's equivalent of Facebook -- before being pulled down after a flurry of angry responses from the public. Burger King Russia then released an apology on VK, saying they had removed all materials related to the campaign as it was 'insulting."

    A hungry Burger King customer in Ohio got an earful of expletives last Wednesday after the restaurant’s manager cussed her out for taking too long to order. Lizzie Ramsey, of Newark, Ohio, said that she and her husband Cody — along with his co-worker and his 11- and 12-year-old brothers — had pulled up to the drive-thru of a nearby Burger King at around 8 a.m. to place their breakfast order. But every time Ramsey had finished ordering for one of the people in the car, the manager interrupted with the total price, and later told her to “hurry up,”...

    Went to Burger King today, and noticed at the bottom of the receipt a Bible verse: "Psalms 20:4 (NIV) May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed." Maybe the owners of this franchise deserve a little recognition for their stand. Seems Chick-fil-A and a few others have taken a stand while others have turned tail and ran from their faith. So, if you are ever in the Castle Rock, Colorado area, the two Burger King restaurants are owned by the same company. Even if you don't eat there, maybe send them a nice...

    To the frantic manager of a Coon Rapids Burger King Friday night, the choice was to act fast or face disaster. A caller who said he was a fire department official said there was a gas leak in the building and that unless the windows were smashed, a gas buildup in the building would cause an explosion. So the manager and Burger King employees evacuated the restaurant and started smashing ground floor windows. Every single one. Problem was, it was a hoax. The caller was no firefighter. There was no gas.

    Burger King has delivered perhaps the wittiest Twitter reply ever by a fast food company. It came in response to Anthony Weiner who tweeted about the news that Snoop Dogg will appear in a Burger King training video teaching employees how to cook hot dogs. I don't want to give the hilarious Burger King punchline away so read it for yourself and enjoy yet another laugh at the expense of Weiner who seems doomed to eternally remain at the butt end of jokes.

    CHICAGO - A Burger King manager who accuses Chicago police of erasing surveillance video in the case of a black teenager shot last year by a white officer says he has testified before a federal grand jury investigating the shooting. It's not clear what that video might have shown, but the accusation of tampering has fueled the anger of protesters who say the city, the police and local prosecutors have mishandled the case. After months of refusals, the city released police squad car video of the shooting on Tuesday in response to a judge's order. But both the police chief...

    The fast-food breakfast wars are upon us. With McDonald's starting all-day breakfast, Burger King responding in kind, Wendy's flailing in the breakfast arena, and Taco Bell revamping its morning menu, the competition is more intense than ever.
