A Taco Bell employee has posted a photo of himself holding a long stack of about 25 empty taco shells — while licking them with his long tongue.
That’s thinking outside the bun, eh?
The unfortunate message to consumers: Unhappy fast-food employees will do disgusting things to the food they sell.
The photo, which the employee originally posted on his Facebook page, has since gone viral.
“We have strict food and handling procedures and zero tolerance for any violations,” Taco Bell says in a statement.
Taco Bell declined to specify whether the employees behind the photo were fired.
“We will not tolerate this type of behavior, and particularly its impressions on our customers, fans, franchisees and team members.” The statement says, “We are working with the franchisee to take appropriate action against everyone involved.”
Is that enough for you?
