A Pita Pit employee in Missoula, Mont. has been terminated after a Facebook video showed her spitting on a customer’s sandwich.
The video is said to have taken place at 3 a.m. on Saturday (3/24/18) morning and has racked up over 340k views since it was posted to Facebook.
The Pita Pit is a family owned business and the owners were in complete shock after the video was brought to their attention.
In the video a verbal altercation had broken out between a customer and an employee. The employee had finished making the customer her sandwich and then proceeded to spit inside of it.
It is unknown what sparked the altercation. ShaeLynn, who uploaded the video and claims to be one of the customers, alleged the confrontation started because “this racist [employee] spit in our food because apparently she was having a bad day and didn’t wanna[sic] be at work!”
WARNING: Video contains strong language.

In a public Facebook post published on the restaurant’s page, the owners issued an apology to their customers.
“We are shocked and saddened by the early morning incident that took place in our restaurant,” the post read.
The owners then go on to directly address ShaeLynn in a longer message, saying they are “mortified” and wish they could “take back what happened.”
