The picture was actually posted to the Taco Bell Facebook page. It highlights an employee in Ridgecrest, California, violating a stack of shells. Obviously, people are not thrilled by this. How dare they defile the quality Taco Bell name!

The usual comments came in response to the incident; "I'm never eating there again!" "That employee should be executed". Yeah, sounds necessary.

The company addressed the situation, saying, "We have strict food handling procedures and zero tolerance for any violations."

"We believe this is a prank and the food was not served to customers. We are conducting an investigation and will be taking swift action against those involved."

As you can see in the picture below, there's definitely tongue to shell contact happening there..
