Charleigh Matice made a shocking discovery after picking up her meal from a McDonald's drive-thru.

The mother of two says she found a Swastika etched in butter on her sandwich bun.

She went back to the restaurant and confronted employees about the Nazi symbol. They offered to get her a new meal free of charge, but she had already lost her appetite. Instead, she got her money back.

McDonald's corporate office released a statement saying it does not tolerate that kind of behavior, and the employee behind the act has since been fired. WCTI published the entire statement, which read:

"We are very sorry for the service that our customers received, and to be clear we have terminated the employee who was involved. We do not tolerate that kind of behavior at McDonald's, and it's not what we stand for personally as owners. It is about providing the best level of service and care to our customers, and anything less than that is unacceptable to us."
- Dulcy Purcell, local McDonald's Owner/Operator in Morehead City, NC

Customers of popular chains have fallen victim to less than stellar food art before. Earlier this year, a Louisiana woman posted a picture to Starbucks' Facebook page, displaying her coffees with a "666" and a pentagram drawn with caramel.

She wrote about the barista, "I am in no way judging his beliefs or dis-meriting his beautiful artwork, I am however judging his lack of professionalism and respect for others."

Here's some coffee art that's a lot less controversial:
