Several Burger King employees in Ohio are looking for new jobs after an Internet video surfaced of one worker bathing in a restaurant sink, WDTN.com reported Tuesday.
The video, which was posted on MySpace.com by an employee calling himself “Mr. Unstable,” shows the teen taking a nude bubble bath in a large stainless steel sink as other employees and a store manager looked on, WDTN.com reported.
The video eventually made it to health officials, who were not amused.
"My first thought was ‘Oh my God," Greene County Health Commissioner Mark McDonnell told WDTN.
All of the employees involved were fired. Burger King’s corporate office released the following statement:
“Burger King Corp. was just notified of this incident and is cooperating fully with the health department. We have sanitized the sink and have disposed of all other kitchen tools and utensils that were used during the incident. We have also taken appropriate corrective action on the employees that were involved in this video. Additionally, the remaining staff at this restaurant is being retrained in health and sanitation procedures.”
“That's just, it's wrong. It's a place where families come to eat," said Crystal Dodge, who told WDTN that she used to eat at Burger King all the time.
