Taco Bell Employee Busted For (Maybe) Peeing on Nachos

New, 4 comments

Here's a gross thing out of Fort Wayne, Indiana, where a Taco Bell employee has been suspended for taking a picture of himself peeing on a plate of nachos. Chasing that same glory of the infamous Burger King lettuce-stomper, Cameron Jankowski tweeted this photo to Hunter Moore — who Gawker describes as a "revenge porn magnate" — only to be tracked down by online "hacktivist" group Anonymous and eventually suspended from the fast food chain.

Jankowski apparently spent some time on Twitter bragging about his awesome ability to urinate on defenseless nachos, but noting that he did so in private and Taco Bell totally couldn't do anything about it since, "I didn't serve those. That's too fucked."

But NewsChannel 15 explains that Jankowski has now changed his story with a Facebook status explaining that it was really just some watered-down Mountain Dew he sprayed into the nachos from a water bottle: "My manager was aware that it was not urine and it is all a joke."

Joke or not, Taco Bell has released a statement promising a crackdown: "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." Here's a report from NewsChannel 15 on the incident.
