TikTok users shocked by McDonald's employee's stomach-turning prank
Internet - A horrific encounter at a McDonald's is putting off thousands of disgusted TikTok users.
The video uploaded by user itskelseylol sparked shock and outrage – and quite a few laughs.
It features the original poster herself, who works at McDonald's, sticking her hand down her pants and grabbing her butt. The woman is apparently being filmed by a man who asks her, "Uh, excuse me ma'am, can I get my large fries?"
The blonde mumbles something under her breath as she removes her hand from her pants and then touches the finished fries with her bare hand, before passing the man his order.
The clip has already been clicked 2.4 million times and caused many to feel nauseous: "ok I'm kinda starting not to trust fast food restaurants," wrote one user.
"No more McDonald for me," said another.
McDonald's video said to be hoax
The employee was fired as a result of the 2016 prank and has not worked for the fast-food restaurant since.
Kelsey responded to the hate comments by re-posting the clip and adding a middle finger emoji.
"This video was taken in 2016, AS A JOKE! We just closed for the night and had to take everything apart to clean it. IT'S A JOKE!!" the young woman defended herself.
Fake or not, the TikTok community was not thrilled: "It doesn't matter if it was a prank either way she did it and it's a place where lots of people go to she shouldn't of done that," protested one user.
A second scolded, "even if it was made as a joke it makes McDonald's look bad if it makes people think what kind of employees are being hired there."
