A Burger King signage went viral after a group of disgruntled Burger King employees walked off the job at the same time at a Lincoln, Nebraska location.

The former employees walked off the job and left a message on the Burger King sign announcing: "WE ALL QUIT. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE."

According to the former employees, they were upset over poor work conditions, low pay and long hours. They chose to collect unemployment which pays more than the minimum wage in Nebraska.

"They have gone through so many district managers since I've been GM," said former general manager Rachel Flores who was among the disgruntled workers that resigned. "No one has come to the store to help me out. They're so in and out."

Flores told reporters the sign was something they all came up with to inform customers that the restaurant was closed and "just kind of a laugh to upper management."

Burger King corporate office issued a statement to CNN:

"The work experience described at this location is not in Lin with our brand values. Our franchisee is looking into this situation to ensure this doesn't happen in the future."

Flores said she was surprised the sign went viral on social media.

"I didn't think anybody was going to notice it, because we did just one sign, and then it went pretty crazy on Facebook," she said. "I got a call from my upper management and they told me I needed to take it down."

Damian Lillard called out online trolls for poking fun at a viral photo of former teammate Caleb Swanigan.

The photo went viral because of Caleb's weight gain a year after he left the NBA. One Twitter user posted the photo along with the caption: "How the hell does one go from this to that in a year?????"

Damian took offense to the trolling. "If you're gonna post this shit with real concern then that's cool. But don't ask "how does one go from this to that", he's clearly having some real life issues."

Damian urged people to have sympathy because Caleb struggled with obesity issues his entire life. He weighed as much as 400 pounds as a child. And his father weighed 500 pounds at the time of his death when Caleb was only three years old.

Caleb, 24, was a Portland Trailblazer for two years until he was traded to the Sacramento Kings in 2019. He returned to Portland in early 2020 and is currently a free agent.

The image went viral after Caleb pleaded guilty to marijuana possession in an Indiana courtroom on Monday.

He was arrested on Dec. 23 by a Columbia City Police officer who smelled marijuana during a traffic stop in northern Indiana.

Police found 3.4 pounds of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and $3,415 in cash inside his car.

Caleb was given a 180 day suspended sentence with two days time served.

The former Purdue University basketball standout was voted Mr. Basketball in 2015. He was affectionately called "Biggie" by his friends and family.
