Starving Boy Beaten By Burger King Manager For Eating Leftovers

This is insanely sad. The Gateway Pundit[1] reports via The National[2] that a starving eleven year-old refugee boy was beaten bloody by a Burger King manager for eating leftover French Fries. The manager was later fired:


A Syrian refugee child has been beaten by a restaurant manager in the Turkish city Istanbul for eating a customer’s leftovers, local media reported on Saturday.

A photo circulating on social media shows the 11-year-old boy sitting bloodied on stairs after having been beaten Wednesday by the manager of fast food chain Burger King’s outlet in the Sirinevler district.

The reason for the beating, accounts say, was the boy eating a customer’s leftover chips.

Halil, who fled to Turkey with his family from Aleppo, Syria two years ago said he wanted to grab leftovers because he was starving, but the manager punched him in the face and kicked his feet, the ‘Milliyet’ newspaper reported.

The boy said he was begging in the streets of Istanbul to earn a living.

Burger King said that the manager was fired after the attack.

“This incident is unacceptable,” it said.

I have an 11 year old. To imagine he would ever be that hungry, let alone beaten for eaten trash, makes me physically ill. I hope this monster gets more than fired- he deserves some time in jail, where maybe he can learn what it feels like to be beaten up by someone bigger than you.
