A customer took a photo of the unfortunate incident at a Sandusky, Ohio, restaurant and posted it to the company's Facebook page. The image, which has gone viral, shows the employee with his left hand down the back of his pants, apparently inside his underwear.

Once the owners of the franchise were made aware of what happened, they fired the employee right away, according to reports.

The company released a statement saying: "This is completely unacceptable. Our franchisee took immediate action and has terminated the employee and retrained the entire staff.

"We want customers to know that the person in the photo was never in contact with the food, and that the Health Department inspected the restaurant and approved its operations."
