A gospel singer from Brooklyn is suing McDonald's after she chewed on a piece of glass bigger than a penny while eating a chicken sandwich at a lower Manhattan restaurant.

The New York Post reports Jaqueline Simpson, 52, is filing a suit at the Brooklyn Supreme Court claiming biting the piece of glass in May of 2010 cost her her voice.

“Now when I sing, I have a hoarse, rattly voice,” Jacqueline Simpson said. “I still sing alto, but I can’t sing soprano like I used to.”

Simpson, who works as a clerk for the state Attorney General's Office, said the incident had changed her voice so dramatically she constantly had to explain she wasn't a man.

“Before [the incident], that never happened,” she said.
