Sandwich chain Jimmy John’s fired workers at a Georgia franchise after they fashioned a noose from bread dough and staged a mock lynching on the Fourth of July, TMZ reported.
Video shows someone hanging the noose around a white worker’s neck to laughter.
The sandwich chain tweeted Monday that the franchise owner in Woodstock had fired everyone involved. Four employees were dismissed, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
“The actions seen in the video are absolutely unacceptable and do not represent the Jimmy John’s brand or the local franchise ownership team,” Jimmy John’s wrote.
