Hot on the heels of the ice-cream licker, there is a new viral video going around that has people outraged – and for good reason. It features a Walmart shopper who gargles mouthwash before spitting it back and returning the bottle to the shelf.
The unsettling footage first appeared online Wednesday, and shows a woman named Bameron Nicole Smith grabbing a mouthwash bottle off the shelf before stating, “Girl, it has been one musty f**king morning.”
She takes a sip of the blue-tinted Listerine, gargling it, spitting it back into the bottle, and then saying, “Mmm, nice and minty and fresh.”
Bameron captions her video clip, “you bitches with no oral hygiene could take a hint.”
The video has been viewed 16 million times, and counting.
Naturally, Twitter has been amassed with comments, as people feel very strongly about this.
Since the video, Walmart has responded regarding the incident, telling the Daily Mail that they are launching an investigation.
A spokesperson for the company said Friday, “We are investigating this incident. If someone tampers with a product and leaves it on the shelf, we will work with law enforcement to identify and prosecute those found responsible to the fullest extent of the law.”
Unfortunately this video isn’t the only one of its kind. There seems to be a gross new take on the viral video challenge, where people are seen eating items, such as ice cream, from super markets without purchasing the product, as shown by Pop Buzz.
In case anyone reading this is stupid enough to want to try the trend, just remember that food tampering is a felony in the US, and if caught, the offender can end up behind bars for up to 20 years.
