This McDonald's employee definitely wasn't lovin' it.

The company told reporters Wednesday that an employee captured in a video luring a homeless man to the drive-through window in Detroit with a hamburger, and then throwing water in his face, has been fired.

"Hey, Willie. Come here. You want a sandwich?" the unnamed employee can be heard yelling before throwing the cup of water.

McDonald's franchisee Wise Finley said he was disturbed by the "inappropriate" incident and took action to fire the employee.

"This type of behavior is not tolerated in my organization. I expect my employees to treat everyone with dignity and respect, and this was unacceptable," Finley told the Detroit Free Press.

Outrage of The Day: A Mom is Super Upset About The Sex Message on Her Kid's Chipotle Cup

And on today's episode of "Everything Offends Me," a woman is really upset at the message on her kid's Chipotle cup.

Did the cup encourage the child to club baby seals? Set fire to a school? Join ISIS?

Nope. It just had two words that made the mom feel uncomfortable: reproductive sex.

OK, maybe out of context these words seem odd on a Chipotle cup. But not if you know anything about the artist that designed the cup.

The artist, Anthony Doerr, describes the cup like this:

Tattoo Earth's 4.5-billion-year timeline onto your arm, shoulder to fingertip, and your upper arm will get nothing but geologic mayhem: meteorites, magma, acid rain. Life won't begin until your bicep, and from there to your wrist it's all single-celled, oceangoing stuff. Reproductive sex won't show up until your wristwatch, and creatures that are finally big enough to see—tubes and fronds and weird Precambrian plant-animals—will crisscross the back of your hand.

Trilobites paddle across your palm; ancient forests grow from your knuckles; dinosaurs wind around the joints at the ends of your fingers. Mammals burrow into your cuticles.

Orangutans, arrowheads, Cleopatra, the names of the stars—they all have to fit on the sliver of fingernail at the end of your longest finger.

So the artwork is an arm showing how the world came to be through evolution. And reproductive sex would only show up around the wrist.

Outrage averted.

Something is fowl over at Australian food chain Chicken Treat.

The company has hired a new social media manager, and she's a literal chicken.

Betty the chicken has taken over the restaurant's Twitter account with the goal of sending an actual 5-letter English word by Oct. 30. And so far, she's said some pretty profound things.

Whoa.

Groundbreaking!

Betty is clearly a very smart chicken. This shouldn't take too much longer.

A new video has emerged online of a Burger King employee in Lake Worth, Florida pouring fry oil into a storm drain, and it has a lot of people flaming mad.

Joe May, who was passing by at the time, decided to capture the disposal on camera. He then posted the clip on Facebook along with a brief description of the scene, which now has almost 1 million views.

International franchise and they cant pay for a disposal company?! How often is this happening? Everyday? Twice a day? Someone needs to be held accountable for this. And yea, it was without a doubt, used fry oil. It was steaming hot. Share this so everyone can see what these people are doing!

May also notes on his page that he shot a second video of his interaction with the manager of the restaurant, but that one doesn’t appear to have been posted yet.

Some angry viewers of the clip are posting it on Burger King’s Facebook page and asking for the company to comment on it.

WPTV News spoke with an environmentalist who confirmed that dumping anything into the sewer is probably not a good idea.

“Whatever is going to be put in the water that’s going down the storm drain is going to be a problem,” he said.

The fast food chain might need take a cue from McDonald’s and give the Burger King mascot a sexy makeover to help dig themselves out of this PR mess.

This guy is definitely not "lovin' it."

A McDonald's employee in St. Paul, Minnnesota went on a rampage this past weekend, and the whole thing was captured on video by one of the customers.

He storms back and forth knocking down everything in sight, leaving quite a mess while everyone else in the store watches.

The scene is a bit like the kid who tore through a dollar store last year, but with a lot more screaming and profanity.

He had just been fired, according to the uploader, which triggered the McMeltdown.

This isn't exactly the McDonald's experience depicted in their new "Pay With Lovin'" campaign.

From the Huffington Post:

Krystal Henderson, 29, and 7-year-old Oliver Hallam purchased takeout from a KFC branch in Killingsworth, according to the Express. At home, Oliver took a bite out of what he assumed was chicken, but recoiled seconds later. "He pulled it out of his mouth and when he did, it pulled away the batter - you could see the blue roll inside," Henderson said, according to the Daily Mail. Henderson said that realizing Oliver had bitten into a paper towel was worse than if it had just been bad chicken.

A real life version of the Krusty Krab, the iconic fast food restaurant is set to open up in Ramallah, on the West Bank in Palestine. The restaurant has been designed to be an exact replica of Mr Krabs' establishment in Bikini Bottom, from the fixtures outside the building to the Krabby Patty burgers on the menu.

Here are more photos of the establishment under construction:

Never before has the phrase "hold the pickles" led to more near-bloodshed. Luckily, no one was hurt from this incident, except maybe our collective dignity as a nation/race of sentient beings.

Toowomba, Australia mother of two Kylie Steger says her appetite was ruined when she found a "rude surprise" at the bottom of a burger box from fast food chain Hungry Jack's: a crude drawing of a penis.

The offensive doodle has put Steger off her weekly dinner visits to the restaurant, where she often took the kids after football and netball practice.

"It literally made me sick," she said. "If they have drawn that in there, what else have they done to my burger?"

A Hungry Jack's spokesman says the company has launched an internal investigation to determine the identity of the artist.

Jonah Hill's character from Superbad has not yet been ruled out as a suspect.

Some Middle Eastern Pizza Hut locations are now serving "Crown Crust" pizzas with a regal ring of cheeseburgers or chicken tenders cooked right into the crust. It's two great tastes that devastate your digestive system great together!

It looks like the combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell was just the first step down a slippery slope toward the eventual fast food singularity.
