A Pittsburgh McDonald’s has come under fire after a customer took a photo of an employee with his hands down the front of his pants.
John Holieb says he had just pulled up to the drive-thru window when his girlfriend saw the shocking display. “We were getting food for my daughter,” Holieb says. “My girlfriend … notices the guy with both hands down his pants. I looked and said, ‘WTF? This is crazy.’ There was a few of them just standing there talking. Then I reached for my phone and took two pictures.”
After posting the photo on social media, Holieb was contacted online by the eatery’s general manager. The message reads, in part, “I had some employees send me your post this morning and wanted to let you know that the matter has been corrected immediately. I work hard to keep food safety as my top priority and I continue to do so. Please know that the owner and I have taken action.” Elaborating on the response, a McDonald’s spokesperson says the employee has been fired.
