A picture of a Burger King sign from last summer that read “Now Hiring Must Be Mexican” was posted today by radio station KFFM.

According to Opposing View, the sign was posted by a disgruntled employee of a restaurant in Ephrata, Washington, who was immediately fired afterwards.

After coming across the picture online, Burger King posted a statement on its official Facebook page saying that reads:

“We are aware of this image. The sign in question was posted briefly last summer, without approval, at a franchise-owned and operated restaurant. Please know the franchise has informed us that the employee who posted and photographed the sign was immediately terminated as a result. The Burger King team is dedicated to diversity and inclusion.”

Whether the employee created the sign as a joke or as an insult remains unknown.
