Good bye Burger King!
Just days before winning her first Oscar for her first movie, “Dreamgirls” star Jennifer Hudson bopped into a Burger King in Hollywood and told thrilled counter workers: “Hey, guys, I used to do what you’re doing. Seriously, y’all, I worked at the counter of Burger King too!” Jennifer posed for pics, signed autographs, but declined a large order of fries a female worker pressed on her, protesting: “I’ve got to fit into my Oscar dress!” [Source]
Meanwhile Hudson has countered Simon Cowell's comments by comparing her experience on the talent show to working at Burger King.
“If I’d been any better at my job when I was at Burger King in my middle teens I wouldn’t be here either, so should I thank them too?” [Source]
Jennifer Hudson Gets BK for Life
Hudson worked at the BK on East 87th and State Street in Chicago. Burger King was her first job at age 16, where she worked with her sister, who claims she sang while working the drive-thru and flipping burgers.
In an exclusive statement to TMZ, Burger King responded to Hudson's beef, assuring her that no thanks is necessary, and awarded her with BK for life:
"...In response to Jennifer's recent comments in which she asked if she should be thanking Burger King, we say thanks, but no thanks are necessary. Burger King Corporation is proud of Jennifer's success and while we never like to lose employees, in this case, our loss is the entertainment industry's gain ... To further show our support for Jennifer, and make sure she never has to sing for her supper again, Burger King Corporation is giving her a pre-paid BK Crown Card that will be automatically reloaded for life."
