People all over the world are wary of fast food branded food and many claim it is unhealthy, unsanitary and various other factors. While opinion can be taken with a grain of salt, a recent incident that happened at a KFC outlet in Queensland, Australia has taken the world by storm. According to a report by The Daily Mail, AU, a group of young Australian KFC workers have been heavily criticized after a video of them brutally mistreating food products at the fast food outlet went viral online.
The video, which went viral on the social media platform TikTok, was posted by an alleged employee of the outlet. In the clip, a group of staff members lick chunks of cooked chicken.
The footage also showed an employee pulling a “tray of chicken out of the warming oven.” It is then followed by another employee who picks up several pieces of cooked chicken “before licking and biting them”. The chaos doesn’t stop there as another employee is spotted with his tongue stuck out while “chips are being thrown into his mouth”. The video, which has now racked up 500,000 views, ended with another employee grabbing handfuls of lettuce “straight out of a container and putting it right in his mouth.”
