A McDonald’s worker has horrified the internet after showing how he appears to give customers “half-eaten” burgers and “deliberately” ruins their food.
The TikTok user, known as @mikky.d0, has been branded the “worst employee ever” for his collection of videos that have racked up more than 3 million views since February.
In one clip seen more than 1.8 million times, the worker filmed a Bacon McDouble with what appears to be the bottom beef patty missing a large chunk.
He then appears to cover it with a slice of cheese and the remaining ingredients before wrapping it up and sliding it towards the counter.
It was captioned “we got a little hungry” and viewers were outraged at the suggestion the burger had been half-eaten.
Many said the man “needs to be jailed” if the video is real.
A similar clip showed how he filled one burger with the tiniest portion of meat ever seen.
Other videos appear to show staff deliberately ruining customer’s orders when they asked for “extra” pickles in a burger or “extra” sauce by going over the top with the ingredients.
The worker also filmed flat sheets of “folded eggs” in plastic wrapping and claimed the eggs were “fake” in the caption.
In another video, the employee responded to a fan’s question of whether “ice cream machines are actually broken” by saying: “It works, we just don’t like making them.”
Since posting the collection of clips, the user has been roundly criticized by viewers online.
One person wrote: "In a pandemic, you are getting fired 100%."
"This man is the worst employee I've ever seen,” claimed another.
The man is clearly using McDonald's packaging to make the orders and staff appear to be wearing the company's uniform.
It is believed the man is employed at a US branch of the popular fast food chain.

A UK spokesperson for McDonald's said: "To be clear, this video is not from the UK & Ireland market but rather seems to be from the US."
McDonald's US confirmed they were “actively investigating” as the food preparation in the burger video did not meet the “robust food quality and safety standards” they have in place.
“Providing our customers with quality food, service and a clean and safe environment is our top priority, and we always want to ensure the best possible experience for them when they visit our restaurants,” they said.
The company added that all the eggs they serve in their restaurants “start with a real egg” but said their omelette-style eggs are made in their suppliers' kitchens before arriving at their restaurants in frozen form for a “consistent shape” that “fits nicely on our sandwiches and are then freshly prepared on the grill in our kitchens”.
In response to the ice cream machine clip, the company explained that the machines undergo regular cleaning, which “may result in customers experiencing a longer wait time or soft serve machines that were unavailable”.
McDonald’s said they are consistently working with franchisees to improve and enhance the restaurant experience so customers “can purchase the sweet treats they enjoy from their dessert menu where and when they want it”.
