Taco Bell firing the employee who post a picture of himself licking taco shells is a good start, but are you really still craving a Dorito’s Cool Ranch taco?

After the picture of the employee surfaced online, Taco Bell snapped into action, claiming the shells were not meant for customer consumption and were going to be thrown out anyway. The picture was taken for an employee contest meant to show workers enjoying their first bite of the highly anticipated food, but the picture still made the rounds on the internet all week.

Now, Taco Bell is firing the offending employee, who worked at a location in Ridgecrest, CA. Moreover, Taco Bell is firing the person who snapped the picture.
