Urinating staffer was surprised to find himself fired
A Taco Bell employee who filmed himself allegedly urinating on an order of nachos and then posted the video on the Internet was somehow surprised to find himself fired this week.
Cameron Jankowski of Fort Wayne, Ind., posted the photo on Twitter, saying, "Guess where I work." According to The Daily Mail, he was apparently attempting to win something called the "Piss Olympics."
While Jankowski came home with the gold, other Twitter followers predicted that Jankowski would be fired. For his part, Jankowski did not think that was possible.
"There are no laws saying what you can and cannot piss upon," he replied.
Jankowski did say that he took his picture where nobody could see him, and the nachos were not served to anybody, but his prank caught the ire of the so-called "hacktivist" group Anonymous, some of whom started a campaign to "Find This Taco Bell Employee." It wasn't that difficult, since they had his full name and all his Twitter pictures.
To his surprise, Jankowski was fired.
According to Indiana News Center, Jankowski's Taco Bell will be deep cleaned, and the staff will be retrained. Jankowski's former coworkers are probably not that happy with him right now.
"Nothing is more important than the safety of our customers and team members," said Taco Bell spokesperson Amy Kavanaugh. "We have strict food handling procedures and zero tolerance for any violations. 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."
