Jimmy John’s Employees Make Noose Out of Bread Dough to Mock Lynching of Black People, Get Fired

Four Jimmy John’s pizza employees were fired after they made a video of themselves creating a noose out of dough to apparently mock the lynching of Black people at a store in Woodstock, Georgia.

The white employees made the video with a “Happy 4th of July” filter, and posted it on Snapchat. The video spread to other social media sites where it was condemned as “racist” and “hateful,” reports the Macon Telegraph.

Jimmy John’s announced on Twitter that the employees had been fired on July 5.
