Video taken on New Year's Eve shows two employees from Pizza Hut, one of the nation's largest pizza chains, taking hits from a bong while preparing pizzas. The two employees were reportedly part of the Cypress, Calif. chain.
Pizza Hut told the New York Daily News that the two employees were fired by the franchisee.
The act, caught on video and shared on social media, shows a young man and a young woman smoking from the bong and then coughing. Bongs are often use to smoke cannabis.
"Footage has emerged of several workers at Pizza Hut celebrating the new year in their own special way ..... surely not something Pizza Hut want to convey to their consumers," the caption of the video said.
