A group of employees at a Georgia sandwich shop have been fired after they made a noose out of bread dough and captured a staged "hanging" on video.
The incident happened over the weekend at a Jimmy John's in Woodstock. Four employees were involved in making the dough noose, which one of the workers then put around another employee's neck -- all while giggling and smirking, the video reveals.
Clearly, Jimmy John's management didn't find the act as funny as the workers did. In a statement, they write, "We have zero tolerance for racism or discrimination in any form. The franchisee has taken immediate action and the employees have been terminated. The actions seen in this video are completely unacceptable and do not represent the Jimmy John's brand."
