Only a few weeks after an Ohio BK worker was photographed standing on his restaurant’s lettuce supply, a new photo has surfaced, this time in the neighboring state of Indiana, which reportedly shows a Taco Bell employee taking a piss on nachos.
Brilliantly, the image was posted to the alleged pisser’s Twitter account along with an invitation for followers to provide recommendations about what he should pee on next. However, after the image was reported to the media, the accused took to Facebook to offer the following explanation:
“I poked a hole in the top of a water bottle and filled it with really watered down mountain dew. I took the bottle and the nacho bell to the back utility sink and squeezed the bottle on to the nacho bell, making it look like I was [urinating] on it. My manager was aware that it was not urine and it is all a joke.”
Meanwhile, Taco Bell released the following statement:
“Nothing is more important than the safety of our customers and team members. We have strict food handling procedures and zero tolerance for any violations. As soon as we learned of the situation, we immediately investigated and found the photo was an ill-conceived prank and the food was never served to customers. We find this prank absolutely unacceptable, and we plan to terminate anyone involved and work with authorities to pursue legal action.”
