Taco Bell Employee FIRED For Wearing #BlackLivesMatter Mask

Published: Thursday 18th Jun 2020 by Sam

As at writing, #RIPTacoBell is trending worldwide on Twitter after an employee of Taco Bell was fired for wearing a Black Lives Matter protective mask.

Full story below…

In a clip that’s going all sorts of viral, Denzel Skinner is seen flabbergasted after being let go by his manager at the Ohio branch of the chain — where he worked as a shift leader for eight years.

Peep the video:

Speaking with CBS’ 8 News Now, Skinner explained that he brought his own mask due to the COVID prevention masks given to employees provided inadequate coverage in warm temperatures.

Yet, per the vid, he was let go because “you can’t bring politics into the building.”

He added that Taco Bell’s policy calls for employees to wear a face cover while working, yet the policy does not specify whether employees could wear masks with messages on them:

“All it stated was [the mask] had to be clean.”

No word as of yet from Taco Bell. However, Skinner says he is not lobbying for his job back nor would he return if asked.

The development comes amidst global debate about racial inequality following the death of unarmed Black man George Floyd at the hands of Minnesota police officers.

In the weeks since Floyd’s shocking death, there’s been worldwide calls for justice and a huge amplification of the #BlackLivesMatter cause – not just amongst civilians but companies too. As such, it’ll be all sorts of interesting to see what Taco Bell’s response to the present matter ends up being.

    Ya’ll don’t need to be eating that s*** anyway. I stopped eating out over 3 months ago and dropped down and look way better. Black people cook your own food. Don’t support businesses that don’t support you!
