Laplace, Louisiana – A McDonald’s employee says he was fired after posting a disturbing picture of the ice cream machine at the Louisiana location where he worked.
The photo he tweeted quickly went viral, prompting an internet backlash for the fast food giant.
The former employee, who preferred to be referred to only as ‘Nick,” posted a picture of the ice cream machine’s drip tray, which is visibly coated in grime and sticky material. According to HuffPo, Nick says store managers are supposed to clean it but that he never saw them do when he worked there. He was employed from March to this month. “This came out of McDonald’s ice cream machine in case y’all were wondering…” he captioned his tweet of the photo. Though it hasn’t quite hit major mainstream outlets, the image has been covered by Teen Vogue and Cosmopolitan and has been retweeted over 13,000 times and received over 15,000 likes.
FoodBeast observed that the filthy ooze doesn’t end up in the ice cream, “but you never want to see photos like that coming out of a restaurant.”
