McDonald's Employee DID NOT Admit To Ejaculating In Big Mac 'Secret Sauce'

Fact Check

  • by: Alan Duke

Why, oh, why? Are your "Facebook friends" that gullible or do they just want to gross you out with fake stories about fast food employees doing stupid stuff? The latest viral hoax detected by Lead Stories' Trendolizer is about a McDonald's worker who purportedly added his semen to the "special sauce" on Big Macs.

"Evan Thomas, 26, had been an "outstanding employee, receiving employee of the month 5 times" according to the manager and coworkers at the Los Angeles, California location. The fact that this happened was a shock to everybody at the restaurant, including the thousands of customers who may have consumed Thomas' semen"

This story is fake. A hoax. NOT TRUE.

First, it is on known hoax site Now8News. Look at the website's main page and you'll immediately see the craziness is not real. They make a lot of money by getting you to share the insanity. Please try to resist.

Second, a reverse image search reveals the mugshot of "Evan Thomas" has been online since 2009. Also, an earlier version of this hoax story featured a different mugshot.
