Taco Bell

A Taco Bell worker has been fired for scrawling the word 'PIG' on tacos ordered by an officer and his fiancée.

KAKE News reports the company apologized to the officer and his fiancée for the worker's insensitive behavior.

The incident happened on Saturday at a Taco Bell in Newton, KS. The couple placed their order for 5 tacos at the drive thru window.

The worker wrote "PIG" on 2 of the food wrappers and handed the order to the officer.

After discovering the offensive writing on their food the couple called the restaurant and spoke with the manager.

"I was told I could bring the 5 tacos back and she would have them remade," the couple told KAKE News. "I advised her that we were both working and that wasn't an option. She then said she would leave a note to refund our money and get the food remade."

Taco Bell's corporate office was moved to do more than just refund the money.

"We’ve of course apologized to him, all the Newton Police officers and, in fact, everyone in the community,” Jeff Graves, senior director of operations for Taco Bell, told KAKE News. “We do not share the same belief or view as the employee whatsoever,” Graves said. “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.”

Tensions between the police and the black community continues to escalate following a series of high profile police shooting deaths of unarmed black men.

      In most states the raise won't take place for a few more years

      How did the employee know the customer was a cop?

      The article says the officer and his girlfriend placed the order through a drive-thru window.

      In most cases, civilians aren't allowed in police cars unless they are being detained, arrested or have written permission from the department to ride along.

      Furthermore, using a taxpayer funded vehicle to drive your girlfriend around and pick up fast food, is a no-no.

      Was the cop in a private vehicle and still in uniform? Is the cop's girlfriend a police officer, too?

    • 1/8

      That would be an excellent defense if Taco Bell sold pork burritos, but they only make beef and chicken.



    • Hmmm~?

      I've seen plenty of cops out at restaurants and various other places with their girlfriend/children while still in uniform. I don't know if they arrived there in a police car or not, though.

    • Raquelle Dellaghetto

      Yes, let's call all cops PIGS, and call all blacks are IRRATIONAL..

    • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

      That's the plan. Keep them in fear


      So the employee was black?

    • sunni_daze

      Maybe they meant to write pork on the taco.

    • Nia

      I would've did the same thing. Fuck the police and their racist power hungry asses. I respect none of them. America sucks because with all of the black lives being lost, no one does anything about it. America is not the home of the brave, it's the home of the racist.

    • fRAktal Reality

      What was the race of the terminated employee?

    • Zizzle

      A refund? They probably didn't pay for the food in the first place.
