Jimmy John's workers fired after filming mock lynching at restaurant

Four employees of a Jimmy John’s franchise restaurant in Woodstock, Georgia have been terminated after they recorded themselves staging a mock lynching at the restaurant with a noose constructed out of dough.

A video was posted on social media on July 5, 2020 revealing one worker putting his head into a dough noose which was held by another employee.

A third employee stood nearby to record the stunt, while another person can be heard laughing.

Jimmy John's has issued a statement condemning the incident and reporting that all involved have been fired from their jobs.
