Ba da da da da, not lovin' it.

A Brooklyn gospel singer is suing McDonald's for allegedly ruining her voice. Per the New York Post, Jacqueline Simpson filed a lawsuit yesterday claiming that in May 2010, she "bit into a piece of glass bigger than a penny" while eating a chicken sandwich from one of the restaurant's Lower Manhattan locations.

"Now when I sing, I have a hoarse, rattly voice," the 52-year-old, who also works as a clerk for the state Attorney General's Office, says. "I still sing alto, but I can't sing soprano like I used to."

"I have to make a lot of calls for work, and I have to tell people that I'm not a man," Simpson adds. "Before, that never happened."

Paul Goodman, who owns and operates multiple McDonald's restaurants within Manhattan, expressed his concern Tuesday, telling the Huffington Post in an emailed statement: "Rest assured I take these matters very seriously…Providing safe food and beverages is a top priority at my restaurant."

"Upon learning about this claim, I took immediate action to gather the facts and began an investigation into the matter," he added. "As this is a pending legal matter, it would [be] inappropriate to comment further."

Better supersize that legal team!
