A Taco Bell employee has been fired and the company has apologized for an insult the employee wrote on a police officer’s order.
The unnamed officer and his fiancé placed an order at the Newton, Kansas restaurant Saturday and when they received it they found the word “PIG” written on their tacos.
The couple called the manager on duty, who was apologetic and offered a refund and a new order, KAKE reported.
Senior director of operations for the company, Jeff Graves, told KAKE that the employee was fired and the restaurant is even working with the Newton police on having an event to show their support for the department.
“We do not share the same belief or view as the employee whatsoever,” he 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.”
Graves said he spoke to the couple quickly after learning of the incident.
“We’ve of course apologized to him, all the Newton Police officers and, in fact, everyone in the community,” Graves told KAKE. “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.”
