The Newton Police Department posts a statement on social media, after a police officer was given two burritos with the word “pig” written on the wrappers.
The photo has been circulating on social media, saying the officer ordered the food from Taco Bell in Newton. The Newton Police Department posted this statement on its Facebook page Sunday morning:
“There is a photo depicting a derogatory term written on the food wrappers of one of our officers who stopped in to our local Taco Bell to pick up dinner for himself and his fiance last night. That photo was posted to social media by a person who is not connected with the Newton Police Department. The photo has gone viral causing strong emotions to be voiced in opposition to one of our local businesses. We do not support this sentiment.
The store manager is terribly apologetic of the actions of her employee and assures us the situation is being handled appropriately. A meeting this morning with the Senior Director of Operations yielded positive results, and we are actively working to develop a partnership with Taco Bell to host a community event in the near future. Details will be announced when available.
The employee was later fired by Taco Bell for the stunt.
