Sometimes you just really need a cheeseburger. A photo of a man with a knife in his back standing in line at McDonald’s is going viral today.
Our first thought: “This has got to be a hoax.” But apparently it’s a real photo. CBS reports that the incident occurred in the Jamaica neighborhood of Queens.
A witness said: “I heard everybody screaming, and it was a lot of commotion … The guy came in, and he was standing there with a knife sticking out of his back.”

The victim reportedly got into an argument with two men down the street from the McDonald’s. When he entered the restaurant, he was reportedly on the phone with a relative telling them what had happened.
The witness said: “He was on the phone, and I’m pretty sure he was on the phone talking to somebody in his family or a loved one or something. He was talking to them and telling them it might be the last time he’s speaking to them.”
The victim was taken to a nearby hospital. It’s unclear if he ever got something to eat. Police are currently investigating the matter.
