Pizza Hut Worker Caught Taking Porn Break By Customers; Manager Does Nothing (VIDEO)

Apparently, managers at one Richmond, Virginia, Pizza Hut are cool with employees taking porn breaks.

Customers Dawn and Leon McKissick say they were shocked to find a worker at their local Pizza Hut allegedly looking at pictures of naked women. Managers did nothing after the McKissicks complained so the couple took the story to local news channel NBC 12, who inquired about the incident further.

Manager Alexis Cunningham told the network that while they regretted that their customers "had to see that," the employee was on personal time and his viewing of the pornographic images doesn't affect "his job performance" even though he went back to prep food moments later.

Pizza Hut provided the following statement to The Huffington Post:

“We strive to create the best possible experience for our customers and expect our Team Members to reflect the standards of our brand while in uniform. We deeply apologize for this incident and will take appropriate action to make sure that our standards are understood.”

While the Pizza Hut worker's porn break reportedly wasn't illegal, some employers have reacted more harshly to similar incidents. A professor in Belgium was recently fired after he was caught looking at porn in a classroom. Likewise, nine Washington, D.C. government employees were fired for watching porn on the job back in 2008, The Washington Post reports.
