Burger king employee who thought it was funny to stand on the lettuce no longer sees the funny side

We’re used to hearing stories of how fast  news can travel on the internet.

But rarely do we see how effective it can be  at tracking down suspects who would otherwise remain anonymous.

When a Burger King employee posted pictures  of himself stepping in bins of lettuce, offended fast-food lovers took a mere 15  minutes to expose him.

The image was captioned with the words, ‘This  is the lettuce you eat at Burger King’ and posted on internet image board  4chan.

However, the other 4chan users were so  appalled by the man’s actions they took the GPS data included in the picture and  pinpointed where it was taken.

Once the local news media were contacted, it  was only a matter of time before the unsanitary suspect was  uncovered.

4chan users involved in the manhunt expressed  their disgust on the site.

‘Enjoy getting fired,’ said one.

‘Just got off the phone with the manager,’  said one user who called the franchise after tracking down the address of the  branch.

‘He’s pissed’.

‘LOL. OP is gonna be in trouble…Don’t f**k  with people’s food,’ says another.

Their actions were so applauded, another  internet site, Reddit, made a montage of the postings in celebration of the  users’ detective work.

The alleged perpetrator was a long-term  employee at the Mayfield Heights  branch of the fast food restaurant in  Cleveland, Ohio, reports  the Huffington  Post.

The man will be fired along with the shift  manager who was on duty at the time says the news source.
