Four Woodstock, GA employees have been fired after a video went viral on social media showing them making a noose out of bread dough, and pretending to lynch one of the employees as others looked on laughing, and recording.
This all while “celebrating” July 4th with a Snapchat filter.
I wish I could say I’m shocked to see a video like this, but at this point, nothing surprises me.
What punchable faces, if we’re being honest.

After the video was posted to another account, Jimmy John’s commented with the following:
“We have zero tolerance for racism or discrimination in any form. The franchisee has taken immediate action and the employees have been terminated. The actions seen in this video are completely unacceptable and do not represent the Jimmy John’s brand.”
The chain’s founder, Jimmy John Liautaud, is known for big game hunting, and photos have begun circulating once again after the viral noose video.
I’m all for hunting the right way and love what guys like Cam Hanes are about, but if you’re hunting elephants – F*CK YOU.
I keep this on my desktop to use every time I see Jimmy Johns mentioned. They will never get a dime of my money. pic.twitter.com/T8FG0XDBZ3
