Disgusting Photo Appears To Show A Taco Bell Employee Licking Food

A photo of a Taco Bell employee licking a stack of taco shells is going viral after being posted to the brand’s Facebook page. 

The Consumerist first posted the disgusting photo:

“Now, as some have pointed out, it’s possible that these shells were destined for the trash bin and were never served to customers, but the fact that a Bell employee would think to take this photo and share it online — even among his friends — is enough to do damage to a company’s reputation,” Chris Morran writes at the Consumerist. 

The photo appears to have been deleted from Taco Bell’s page, and the company hasn’t commented on its validity. We’ve reached out to the brand for comment. 

Last year, a Taco Bell employee was fired after he tweeted a picture of himself peeing on some nachos on the job.
