Four employees at a Jimmy John's in Woodstock, Georgia were fired after making a noose out of bread dough and filming themselves playing with it.
The video of the employees was posted on Snapchat showing one employee draping the bread dough noose over the neck of another and pulling it. The other workers watch and laugh. The video has a “Happy 4th of July” banner across the bottom of the video.
Customers threatened to boycott the sandwich shop over the incident, calling the video hateful and racist.
Jimmy John’s responded to the incident, condemning the video in a statement on Twitter.
The company commented under the video, “We have zero tolerance for racism or discrimination in any form,”
