So sexy it hurt (everyone's eyes.)

Screengrab: ABC Action News

Apparently no one wants a side of beefcake with their beef: A cook at a Florida Chili's location has been fired after he staged a semi-nude photoshoot in the restaurant's kitchen. Managers caught wind of the risqué photos when he posted them on FacebookAccording to WFTS, a "concerned customer" contacted the restaurant after discovering topless photos of a cook who goes by the name Justin J Speekz. Apparently, the series of photos include images of Speekz lying shirtless on a table "where food is prepared." Speekz also labeled the pictures "Sexy Cooks of Chili's" — and thought it was a smart idea to tag the restaurant.

While the Department of Business and Professional Regulation said that there were no violations in the photos "because no food was being prepared," Chili's appeared to be outraged. The chain noted in a statement that it "clearly does not encourage this type of behavior in our restaurants" and that the employee was indeed fired. Sorry Speekz, might need to relabel that album "Sexy Former Cooks of Chili's." Go, watch a local news story below:
