Two Domino's employees of a North Carolina franchise were fired today after posting a video on YouTube last night, showing one employee putting food items up his nose and then serving it on a toasted sub sandwich.
In showing the power and swiftness of social media, the online video (below) was posted by the employees Monday night and quickly reported on The Consumerist, a web site for consumers to report. Within hours viewers reported the offense to Domino's corporate office. Tim McIntyre, Vice President of Communications for Domino's Pizza, wrote an email back at 6:45am EDT this morning.
In the email, the woman filming the video, Kristy, replies to the corporate office, "It was all a prank and me nor Michael expected to have this much attention from the videos that were uploaded! No food was ever sent out to any customer."
The original video was taken down by the female employee but by that time copies already existed and were reposted by viewers.
The Conover, North Carolina franchise owner today terminated the employment of both pranksters. The chain is considering filing charges against them.
