Macca’s worker’s disgusting act

A MAN visited the drive-through at a McDonald's outlet in Pittsburgh in the US when he says he saw an employee standing with his hand stuck down his pants.

While he didn't appear to be wearing a uniform, he was standing in the kitchen at the time.

"I was with my girlfriend and we were getting food for my daughter," John Holieb explained to Fox News.

"My girlfriend made a comment about how she can't believe no one is wearing uniforms. Then she notices the guy with both hands down his pants.

"I looked and said, 'WTF. This is crazy'. There was a few of them just standing there talking. Then I reached for my phone and took two pictures."

He also explained that after the incident, a woman saying she was the general manager sent him a message.

He shared a screenshot of the message, which said, "Good morning. My name is Kara. I am the (general manager) of the restaurant from your post," the message reads.

"I just wanted to let you know that I had some employees send me your post this morning and wanted to let you know that the matter has been corrected immediately.

"I work hard to keep food safety as my top priority and I continue to do so. Please know that the owner and I have taken action."

In a statement obtained by Fox News, a spokesperson for the company that owns the franchise said action had been taken.

"Providing safe, high-quality food is a top priority," the statement reads.

"We immediately addressed this situation as soon as we were made aware, and I can confirm this individual is no longer employed by my organisation."
