Dunkin’ Donuts Fires Employee for Harmful Prank
Allegedly, a group of five teens walked into the Dunkin’ Donuts in question looking for a free box of doughnuts. The teens said a different clerk had given them free doughnuts before at the same location.
The worker refused, but told the teens to come back later. When they returned, he allegedly gave them their desired box of free doughnuts — but not before he had sprayed them with cleaning solution, which contained bleach, known to seriously harm humans when ingested.
Two teens ate whole doughnuts, while the other three needed only a bite to know that something was off. No one was seriously injured, but the teens’ parents are considering pressing charges against Dunkin’ Donuts for the dangerous and mean-spirited prank.
Prosecutors, meanwhile, are exploring potential charges of misdemeanor assault against the employee.
