A pair of Arkansas Waffle House restaurant employees have been given pink slips after they were caught on video performing hair weaves in the kitchen.
The now fired workers used pots and pans as well as kitchen utensils in the disgusting process. Customers say they were tipped off after subsequently finding pieces of wayward hair in their meals.
Antonio Robinson said that his friend found hair in his food when they dined last week at a Waffle House in Forrest City, Arkansas, WREG reported. ‘He was just coughing. Cough. Cough. Making noises like that,’ Robinson told WREG. ‘I looked up at him [and] he went to pulling out strings of hair out his mouth.’ Robinson said they then watched two employees ‘doing hair’ in the restaurant’s kitchen. ‘She dipped her hair down in the pot and when it came back up she was drying it off with one of the towels,’ Robinson told WREG. ‘I see people do that in their houses and things like that but for a restaurant, I don’t know,’ said Robinson. h/t dailymail
