A Kansas police officer and his fiancee headed to Taco Bell to grab some dinner to go on Saturday night. When they picked up their order, they never expected to find this.
According to The Blaze, the word “PIG” was written in large black letters on at least two of their items.
The couple immediately called the restaurant’s manager, who said they could bring back their five soft tacos and exchange them for new ones. When they informed the manager that they could not come back since they were both working, she told them she would refund them for their meal and arrange for their food to be remade.
On Sunday, Taco Bell told reporters that they went even further and fired the employee who wrote the notes.
“We do not share the same belief or view as the employee whatsoever,” Jeff Graves, senior director of operations for Taco Bell, told the press. “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 added that he has personally spoken to the police officer and his fiancee.
“We’ve of course apologized to him, all the Newton Police officers and, in fact, everyone in the community,” he continued. “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.”
We’re glad that Taco Bell took a stand for this police officer and his fiancee!
