AN EMPLOYEE was caught on video taking a bath in a Wendy’s sink — and said it felt “like a hot tub.”
All of the employees in the video have now been fired, after the 23-second clip went viral on social media, Newsweek reported.
In the video, a man — who is seemingly naked — sits submerged in bubbly water in an industrial sink in the kitchen.
An employee throws what looks like a cloth at the man with his knees folded up to his chest in the sink.
“Wash yourself,” the employee clad in a Wendy’s shirt and hat yelled at the man in the sink.
“It feels like a hot tub,” the man taking the bath said.
“I’m just enjoying life, dog,” he told the other employee.
Other employees in the background laughed at the employee taking the bath.
The video was originally posted on Tik Tok by user @paulkash2, but appears to have been removed.
It was reposted on Facebook by Connor Somerfield, where it went viral.
It now has more than 81,000 views and has been shared more than 2.4 thousand times.
The incident occurred at a Wendy’s location in Greenville, Michigan, The Daily News reported.
Christian Camp, vice president of human resources for Team Schostak Family Restaurants confirmed in a statement sent to The Sun that disciplinary action has been taken following the incident.
"This egregious behavior is completely unacceptable and counter to our safety, training and operational standards," Camp said.
"Upon learning of this situation, all employees in the video were terminated immediately and the restaurant has been completely sanitized."
Camp ensured The Daily News that the restaurant was cleaned and emphasized the importance of safety.
"“The bottom line is, we don’t want anything to make our guests feel that they can’t eat at any Wendy’s restaurant, or any other of our restaurants,” he said.
“We look at everything to make sure that everything is safe, for our employees, first and foremost, and definitely for our guests.”
