Timothy Tackett, 25, reportedly posted a video on his Myspace page featuring him enjoying a soapy bath in the sink to celebrate his birthday, WTHI.com reports . Tackett referred to himself only as "Mr. Unstable" in the video and later told reporters he wasn't naked, as some had thought, and said he was wearing a black Speedo. The video has since been taken down, although many sites have stills of the video showing Tackett playing in the soapy sink.
Tackett, who says he was fired after the incident, told reporters he regrets his actions because two other employers were eventually terminated--the one who allegedly filmed the bath and the manager on duty.
While the sink was sanitized after the bath, Burger King Corp. has ordered all utensils and kitchen tools be discarded, and is retraining the staff of the restaurant on health and sanitation procedures, WTHI.com reports.
Tackett, an aspiring musician, says that he is thankful for all the hits to his Myspace page. The page highlights his music as well as an upcoming performance with a national recording artist.
He also reassured customers of the Burger King that it is a clean restaurant, "It's totally a safe place to eat," Tackett told WTHI.com . "I would eat there still, but I'm not allowed."
