Gospel Singer Sues McDonald’s for Shard of Glass in Sandwich

“I can’t sing soprano like I used to,” Jacqueline Simpson claims

In May 2010, Jacqueline Simpson, a 52-year-old gospel singer and clerk for the state Attorney’s General Office, had a chicken sandwich at McDonald’s in Manhattan and, since then, her life has never been the same – in the worst way possible.

Page Six reports that Simpson is taking Mickey D’s to court on the allegation that, as she was enjoying her sandwich, she bit on a shard of glass, a small piece of which she accidentally swallowed.

It ruined her voice: now she can’t sing the way she could and even has to explain to people on the phone that she’s not a man.

“Now when I sing, I have a hoarse, rattly voice. I still sing alto, but I can’t sing soprano like I used to,” she says.

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

She filed the papers at the Brooklyn Supreme Court but, as of now, no word on how much money she’s asking as damages.
