McGlass Takes Away Singer’s Voice

A Brooklyn gospel singer says that a shard of glass in her McDonald’s chicken sandwich irreparably damaged her vocal chords, affecting both her singing career and her job. Jacqueline Simpson claims to have eaten the glass at a Manhattan McDonalds in 2010. She claims that since then, her soprano voice has changed so much that she now sounds like a man.

Simpson has filed a lawsuit against the fast-food mega-chain, seeking damages for the effect that the “surprise” inside her sandwich caused to her life. She claims that, since swallowing the glass, which she described as larger than a penny, she has a “hoarse, ratty voice.” She told the New York Post that she still sings a lot, “but I can’t sing soprano like I used to.”

Simpson also says that her job requires her to speak on the phone regularly, and that, since the glass, she must now clarify that she is a woman and not a man.

Simpson filed a lawsuit in Brooklyn Supreme Court, and the damages she is seeking are not known.

McDonalds is no stranger to unusual lawsuits. Perhaps the most famous one filed against the company was the 1996 incident in which a woman sued them after spilling hot coffee on herself. In 2012, another woman sued the company after she spilled hot coffee on her baby. In 2012, a woman sued McDonalds for pushing her into a life of prostitution.
