Jennifer Hudson can have all the Whoppers she wants for the rest of her life.If I’d been any better at my job when I was at Burger King in my middle teens, I wouldn’t be here, either, so maybe I should thank them, too, the ‘Dreamgirls’ star, 25, said in response to Simon Cowell‘s criticism that she didn’t thank ‘American Idol’ in her Oscar speech. Burger King delivered.’In response to Jennifer’s recent comments in which she asked if she should be thanking Burger King, we say thanks, but no thanks are necessary,’ the company statement reads. ‘Burger King Corporation is proud of Jennifer’s success and while we never like to lose employees, in this case, our loss is the entertainment industry’s gain … To further show our support for Jennifer, and make sure she never has to sing for her supper again, Burger King Corporation is giving her a pre-paid BK Crown Card that will be automatically reloaded for life.Woo-hoo!
