Gospel Singer Suing McDonald’s Because Broken Glass Isn’t Easy On The Throat

If it’s not the hot coffee lawsuit of a lifetime, it’s still a major claim that McDonald’s mucked up pretty fierce: A gospel singer living in Brooklyn alleges in a new lawsuit that McDonald’s is responsible for ruining her voice, after she claims she bit into a piece of glass while eating a chicken sandwich.

The woman tells the New York Post she was dining at a lower Manhattan McD’s location when the chunk of glass made its appearance in her mouth. According to her tale, she can no longer sing like she used to since the incident in May 2010.

“Now when I sing, I have a hoarse, rattly voice,” the 52-year-old woman said. “I still sing alto, but I can’t sing soprano like I used to.”

She claims it’s gotten so bad, people on the phone at her job in the Attorney General’s office don’t think she’s who she says she is.

“I have to make a lot of calls for work, and I have to tell people that I’m not a man,’’ she explained. “Before, that never happened.”

McDonald’s hasn’t made a statement about the lawsuit yet, which was filed late last week. McDonald’s is no stranger to lawsuits — from more hot coffee to a lady of the night blaming the eatery for pushing her into her profession.
