KFC Employee Fired For Viral Photo Of Potato-Licking
Take this as a lesson: if you're going to mess around after hours at your fast food job, do not post photos of your actions unless you want the photos to go viral and you to get fired.
A spokesman for KFC wrote to the Johnson CIty Press saying:
"Nothing is more important to KFC than food safety. As soon as our franchisee became aware of the issue, immediate action was taken. The franchisee's investigation confirmed the photos were taken after the restaurant was closed and none of the food was served.The employee involved was immediately terminated."
