Clovis Police Department Officer Timo Rosenthal speaks out on 'Fox & Friends'.

A New Mexico police officer got an unwelcome addition with his fast food order.

Fast-food chain Burger King fired five employees in the U.S. after they served a police officer a burnt burger, and drew a pig on the wrapper of the dish. A cartoon pig is crudely drawn on the wrapper, and the photo bears the text, "When you order food in uniform".

"Once I opened up the burger and saw the burnt patties and the quality of the burger, I knew it wasn't a joke and knew it was out of spite", he said.

"Guess that was the last time I ate at Burger King in Clovis, NM", he wrote on Thursday. Rosenthal noticed that his burger wrapper had a crude sketch of a pig on it.

The fired employees weren't identified, KRQE News 13 reported.

According to Burger King, the five employees involved in the incident were fired shortly after the image of the wrapper was shared on Rosenthal's Facebook.

The chain added that they will give free meals to uniformed officers and provide a catered lunch to the Clovis Police Department.

The vice president of Burger King in Clovis said in a statement that the franchise does not tolerate that kind of treatment from law enforcement officers or anyone else.

"I don't blame Burger King at all; it's the fault of a few people that work there", Rosenthal said. "Everybody needs to be held accountable for their own actions and that's what they did, they're holding people accountable".
