Two Taco Bell workers in Asheville, North Carolina, were apparently caught on video smoking inside while a long line of cars grew in the drive-thru at the fast food restaurant.
“We are disappointed to see that this happened," a Taco Bell spokesperson emailed WLOS. "This is a franchise location and the team members involved no longer work for the franchisee.”
North Carolina has a statewide ban on smoking in restaurants.
