A police officer in Kansas was shocked to discover that a Taco Bell employee wrote a disturbing three-letter word on his to-go order.
The officer was driving through the fast food restaurant with his fiancee on Saturday when he discovered that the word “PIG” had been written in black marker on at least two items in his order, according to KAKE News. The stunned couple subsequently called and spoke to the manager, who offered to refund them and replace their order. When they told her they were unable to return because they were both working, the manager said she’d make arrangements to get their money refunded.
On Sunday, Taco Bell announced that they’d gone a step further and fired the employee who left the note.
“We do not share the same belief or view as the employee whatsoever,” senior operations director Jeff Graves said, according to The Blaze. “Our company, Taco Bell, has always been pro-law enforcement, military. We’ve always supported the police in our community. Many of our restaurants give police discounts when they come in and eat.”
Graves told reporters that he reached out to the officer personally when he learned of the incident.
“We’ve of course apologized to him, all the Newton Police officers and, in fact, everyone in the community,” he said. “In fact, I’ve even met with the lieutenant with the Newton Police Department this morning, and we’re even going to plan a community event working with the Newton Police officers within the next week just to show our support for the officers and the community.”
