A barefoot baby and her mother were ousted from a Burger King in Missouri after the manager accused them of violating the health code. The manager threatened to call the authorities if mother, Jennifer Frederich, and baby didn’t leave.
The mother complied, then returned after putting socks on the baby’s feet but that still didn’t cut it with this genius of a manager.
After the mother contacted the media, Burger King spokeswoman Denise Wilson issued a statement saying…
“The franchisee is retraining his restaurant team on the proper use of the ‘no shoes’ policy. Furthermore, the franchisee is also contacting the guest to apologize about this incident.”
I would hope so. This is pretty ridiculous.
“The guy was still saying, ‘that lady is still here with that baby without shoes’,” Frederich said. “I just looked at him and I said, ‘that’s my daughter. She doesn’t own shoes. She’s only 6 months old’… she doesn’t walk. She’s not touching the ground. So there’s no reason for her to have shoes on.”
