Taco Bell Employee Fired After Being Caught With His Hands Down His Pants

Suddenly that chalupa doesn't taste so good.

Ew.
Ew.

This gross photo might just haunt you next time you're trying to enjoy a Doritos Locos taco: A Taco Bell employee in Sandusky, Ohio got the axe after being caught on camera with his hand stuffed down the back of his pants, reports Cleveland's Fox 8. The photo was posted to Taco Bell's Facebook wall, prompting the fast food chain to issue this statement:

This is completely unacceptable and has no place in our restaurants. Our franchisee took immediate action, and has terminated the employee and retraining the entire staff. We want customers to know that the person in the photo was never in contact with the food, and that the Health Department inspected the restaurant and approved its operations.

Mr. Hands-in-the-Pants certainly isn't the first fast food employee to have their unsavory acts captured on camera: Another Taco Bell employee was busted when a photo of them licking a stack of taco shells surfaced on Facebook, and a photo of a Burger King employee standing in tubs of lettuce went viral a few years back thanks to 4Chan (said employee was swiftly terminated).
