A Checkers employee was reportedly terminated after a video showed how he wiped the floor with a burger bun that was still used to prepare the fast food chain's burger.

The 20-second footage entitled "Nasty A-Checkers" went viral over YouTube after a 17-year-old female employee was seen dropping one half of a burger bun on the floor.

In a shocking twist, the employee purposely wiped the floor with the bread before proceeding to assembling the burger while people on the background are heard laughing, Fox Tampa Bay reported.

While she was not seen serving the contaminated burger, customers of the fast food chain as well as some concerned Facebook users called the company's attention regarding this matter.

"You need to do something about the video going around of [an African American] female checkers employee throwing a bun on the floor and smashing it around then serving it. I sent it to you in messenger. I'm reporting it to the board of health as well," Facebook user Brian Paulson commented on one of the fast food chain's posts.

In response, Checkers releaed a video of Checkers Senior Vice President Lori Malcolm expressing her disgust at what the employee did.

"I, like you, am appalled and disappointed by what I saw in that video," she said in the video.

She assured Checkers' customers that "the employees involved" have been removed from service of that Baltimore-area Checkers branch which was not pinpointed.

 "We spoke to the employee in the video, and her mother and the employee is very sorry and embarrassed about what happened," she explained, adding that the unnamed employee's mother initiated communication with the company and was "really helpful" in setting things right.

Furthermore, she claimed that the burger whose bun was used to wipe the Checkers floor was never served to a customer or guest of the branch, something which many Facebook commenters doubted.

"So she continued making the burger and THEN threw it out? You really believe that? How about the Mayo container that was cross contaminated by the spatula she used on the dirty bun. Did they not serve mayo from that container anymore?" Facebook user Yakov Libman wrote on the comments section of Checkers' response video.

As of the writing of this article, the viral clip has already reached more than 422 thousand people who had access to YouTube around the globe while the original video posted on Facebook had already been removed.
