Taco Bell Employee Licking Taco Shells Photo Triggers Official Statement

Taco Bell has issued a statement about the "tasty" Taco Bell employee photo gone viral on Facebook.

A photo of an Taco Bell employee licking a stack of Taco shells went viral on Facebook. The upsetting photo triggered now an official statement from Taco Bell explaining the origin of the photo. The good news is these Taco shells never got served.

Taco Bell says in the statement that the shells were used for training in March before the company launched a new product, and were in process of being thrown out. Two Taco Bell employees have used these shells to take a photo for an internal contest in which company and franchise employees could submit photos of themselves enjoying their first bite of the new product.

The employees never submitted the photo to the contest as it clearly violated the rules. An employee has though posted the licking photo through social media. It is still online on Facebook here.

Taco Bell has suspended the employee shown in the photo and is in the process of terminating his employment. The other employee has already left Taco Bell earlier. Posting a photo like that on Facebook is definitely one of the quickest ways to get fired.
