Burger King offer free food to fired customers

Burger King serve up free meals for those able to prove they've been sacked from a job.

Those brave enough to go onto their LinkedIn profile and post a message announcing they've been booted from their job will receive the fast food chain's Whopper Severance package from now until Friday.

The embarrassing post, which could prevent applicants from being hired again, must read: "I got fired. I want a free Whopper. #WhopperSeverance."

A representative for the firm told Business Insider: "For over 63 years, Burger King restaurants have used fire to flame grill.

"While getting fired sucks, for Burger King restaurants fire-grilling is a good thing."
