You can’t always have it your way.
“I had a lady complain today because my uniform was a ‘distraction’ to her husband,” the fast-food staffer, known digitally as Lala, complained in a viral social media post.
The “Home of the Whopper” worker’s video has garnered a whopping 14.8 million views on TikTok.
In the highly clicked clip, Lala — a mom of one who identifies as Sudanese and is a biochemistry student living in the Midwest — gave online audiences a 360-degree view of herself dressed in a loose-fitting black Burger King polo shirt with a company-branded hat to match and a pair of hip-hugging black jeans.
And by the looks of it, her bountiful backside was the cause of the “distraction” in the customer’s complaint.
“I guess I’ll leave my a-s home next time,” the burger flipper said in the video before flipping the bird at her detractor. She captioned the clip “Girl f–k you.”
“Karens always have the audacity & the nerve,” Lala said in response to one of the more than 40,000 comments her trending TikTok has garnered since being published Thursday.
Supporters of the post went on to leave more remarks that poked fun at the unnamed, unidentified “Karen” — who many believe should have expressed her anger to her husband and his wandering eyes rather than Lala’s eye-popping patootie.
“The husband gotta leave his eyes at home next time,” one keyboard crusader wrote, echoing the sentiments of other comments like, “She’s mad at the wrong person.”
Another fan of Lala’s fanny said: “Girlllll you look so good I don’t blame him for looking respectfully.”
When a commentator asked why her shirt was untucked — noting the fashion faux pas is in violation of Burger King’s employee dress code policy — Lala said, “I only untucked it because she started yelling at me.”
In a separate video, Lala addressed a racist critic of the clip who accused her of being a “home wrecker.”
“My back hurts from carrying the weight of not caring because I did nothing wrong except wear my uniform and STILL sexually objectified and harassed,” she wrote, closed-captioning the post while dancing in the background.
As far as revealing any more about herself or where she works, Lala published yet another public service announcement to TikTok, requesting that her more than 110,000 followers refrain from asking the whereabouts of her workplace.
“Disclosing my work location is a huge breach in security and safety not only for myself, but also for my coworkers & managers,” she wrote.
“I absolutely do NOT want to (possibly) put them in harms way or have them being harassed just because of a viral video.”
So far, Burger King has yet to openly comment on Lala’s bootylicious broadcasts.
But an excerpt from an online copy of the restaurant’s employee handbook reads: “…Keep in mind that anything that could be considered distracting or not in the best interest of Burger King and will not be permitted.”
So here’s hoping her “distracting” derrière doesn’t get the boot.
