A gospel singer is suing McDonald’s after she swallowed a piece of glass found in a chicken sandwich.
Jacqueline Simpson said that she encountered the stray shard after ordering a meal from the fast food chain back in 2010. The singer claims that swallowing the glass had an adverse affect on her vocal chords. Since her singing voice has ultimately been destroyed, Simpsons decided to file a lawsuit against McDonald’s.
Business Insider reports that the change in the woman’s voice was almost immediate. The problem is so severe that she if often mistaken for a man during phone calls.
“Now when I sing, I have a hoarse, rattly voice. I still sing alto, but I can’t sing soprano like I used to,” Simpson explained to the New York Post.
She continued, “I have to make a lot of calls for work, and I have to tell people that I’m not a man. Before, that never happened.”
The singer, who is also a clerk with the Attorney General’s office, has decided to sue McDonald’s over the damage done to her vocal chords. Simpson filed the lawsuit in Brooklyn last week.
As The Consumerist points out, the popular fast food restaurant is certainly no stranger to the world of lawsuits. In early 2012, a prostitute in Nevada blamed a franchise owner for pushing her into her current profession.
The website explains that the franchisee gave the woman a job before they decided to start dating. She was later fired from her position at the restaurant for reasons the woman said were false. Although they later got married, she claimed he pushed her to become a prostitute.
The chain has yet to respond to Jacqueline Simpson’s lawsuit as of this writing.
