A McDonald’s employee has been labeled the “ worst employee ever ” after claiming to have lifted the lid on the fast food chain – seemingly making “ half-eaten ” burgers and deliberately “ messing up ” food with too much sauce or pickles.
The TikTok user, believed to be from the US and known only as @ mikky.d0, has amassed over 3 million views since February filming himself and colleagues at work in one of the food giant’s stores. in an unknown location.
In a video that has been viewed more than 1.8 million times, the male worker shows a Bacon McDouble with the bottom steak missing a piece and the caption ‘we got a little hungry’.
Meanwhile, other clips show staff members stacking huge handfuls of pickles on top of a burger asking for extra pickles and drowning other foods in ‘extra’ sauce.
In a shocking clip, which quickly went viral, the worker showed the meat with a significant piece missing before covering it with a slice of cheese and the remaining ingredients, wrapping it up, and shoving it to the counter.
Enraged viewers interpreted this to suggest that the burger was half-eaten and were quick to blow up the account saying ‘you should be jailed if that’s real’ and ‘not in a pandemic WHAT’.
While some were quick to claim that the burger was missing with a ‘bite’, it was a joke and those involved hoped ‘not really giving it to anyone'[sic]’, others dismissed it as’ not even funny’ and wondered why the staff hadn’t been ‘fired’.
One person wrote, “People who got really cheeky for forgetting the girl who licked ice cream in Tesco got 4 years in prison.”
One person wrote, “In a pandemic, you will be fired 100 percent.”
A third said, “This man is the worst employee I’ve ever seen.”
When one person wondered what the charges would be for such a stunt, the employee claimed it would be nothing as the filmed staff member suggested the video was a joke.
In another clip where a customer asked for extra tartar sauce on their Filet-o-Fish, footage showed staff overloading both sandwiches with copious amounts of the condiment.
Followers found it “disgusting” after the employee sprayed five generous portions of the sauce on one meal before adding seven to another.

One commenter said, “Why do you have to take others out for a day?”
Another wrote: ‘That’s just maliciously disrespectful and would be stolen if anyone did too[sic]
However, another video had him respond to a viewer’s question asking ‘are the ice cream machines really broken’ by showing that the machine works and saying, ‘It works, we just don’t like making them. ‘
In one video, viewers were shocked when the employee entered the refrigerator resembling a McDonald’s refrigerator, where he showed flat sheets of ‘folded eggs’ in plastic packaging waiting to be reheated – leading commenters to label it as ‘filthy’.
The clip, captioned “ yall eggs be fake, ” shows the employee entering the store’s walk-in refrigerator and showing off a vacuum-packed bag of folded eggs, pre-mixed and waiting to be reheated.
Many TikTok users had rebelled over the video clips, with many calling the revelations ‘nasty’ and wondering if the videos could be a joke
One commenter wrote, “I knew McDonalds is waste and you still like it[sic]
Another person said, “That’s damn annoying.”
One person commented, ‘That’s why it tastes like sponge[sic]
A British McDonald’s spokesperson said, “To be clear, this video is not from the UK and Irish market, but rather appears to be from the US.”
McDonald’s US confirmed that they were “actively investigating” as the food preparation in the burger video did not meet the “robust food quality and safety standards” they have.
The company said all eggs they serve in their restaurants “start with real egg,” but omelet-like eggs are made in suppliers’ kitchens before arriving at their restaurants in frozen form for “consistent shape.”
Commenting on the ice cream maker clip, McDonald’s explained that the machines are cleaned regularly, which “could result in longer waiting times for customers or if soft serve ice cream machines were unavailable.”
The company said they consistently work with franchisees to enhance and enhance the restaurant experience so that customers can “ buy the sweet treats they enjoy from their dessert menu whenever and wherever they want. ”
