Wendy's employee seen bathing in kitchen sink in viral video
MILTON, FLORIDA — A video of an employee taking a warm bath in a Wendy's kitchen sink has gone viral overnight, and it's landed the store in hot water with customers.
The Pensacola News Journal reports that the 33-second long Snapchat video was screen recorded and posted to Facebook by Haley Leach, who found the video disturbing.
It shows a male employee at a Wendy's in Milton, Florida in nothing but a pair of shorts, stepping into an industrial sink filled with soapy water.
He sits in the sink with water up to his chest, as laughter can be heard in the background.
The woman behind the camera swivels briefly to show two other employees recording the bath, before instructing her bathing coworker to wash his armpits, and then grabbing some napkins for him to use.
She ends the video by flipping the camera to show her face, and we see that she's also wearing a Wendy's employee hat.
The video has been shared over 16,000 times, and has nearly 4,000 comments. Many locals expressed disgust and vowed never to visit that particular Wendy's again.
According to NWF Daily News, the owners of the Wendy's store said in a statement that the incident was a prank by someone who was no longer working at the restaurant.
The store remained open and has since passed an inspection from the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.
