A Booklyn gospel is suing McDonalds for allegedly serving up a big piece of glass in her chicken sandwich, which apparently ruined her voice. Jacqueline Simpson, 52, says she found a piece of glass bigger than a penny while digging into the tasty meal at a lower Manhattan branch of the fast-food franchise, reports the New York Post.

McDonaldsGospel Singer Is Suing McDonalds For Ruining Her Voice

"Now when I sing, I have a hoarse, rattly voice," said Simpson, who yesterday filed suit in Brooklyn Supreme Court. "I still sing alto, but I can't sing soprano like I used to." The singer says she bit into the glass to a Broadway McDonalds near the World Trade Center back in May 2010. "I have to make a lot of calls for work, and I have to tell people that I'm not a man,' said Simpson, a clerk for the state Attorney General's Office. "Before, that never happened."

Though McDonalds probably has its own legal team working on these matters every week, Ms Simpson would presumably be entitled to considerable damages should she be able to prove that the glass was found in the sandwich and that she lost earnings due to the change in her voice.

In the 1990s, Stella Liebeck, 79, sued McDonalds for $2.9 million after suffering third-degree burns from hot coffee spilled on her at one of the company's drive-thrus. The total was later knocked down to around $650,000.
