Cop Says He Faked Vulgar Message on McDonald's Coffee Cup

There was outrage over a viral photo of a McDonald’s coffee cup supposedly inscribed with an anti-police message. A rookie officer in Kansas claimed he’d received the cup at a drive-thru. But now the officer is claiming that the incident was a hoax, and that he wrote the note himself as a joke.

The officer’s police chief is embarrassed and upset by the incident, describing it as “a black eye on law enforcement.”
