A shocking claim going viral on social media says that a Budweiser employee has been urinating into beer tanks for the last 12 years. The claim has shocked beer lovers.
According to an article, an employee named Walter Powell (name changed) said that he has been urinating inside the beer tanks for the last 12 years. The report mentioned that Walter has worked only in Budweiser Brewery Experience (Fort Collins, CO) and thus, other Budeweiser are free of urine.
“Is like a Russian Roulette, sometimes when I am with my friends, and they ask for Budweiser, I blush and say to myself, poor guys,” the article quoted Walter as saying.
“First time I made water inside the tanks was after working 2 years, once I moved up and earned the trust of my superiors. I was thinking about nothing, just the WC was too far away, and I was lazy to go. I won’t do it again, from now on you all can feel the authentic Budweiser taste,” Walter further said, as per the report.
Soon after the claim went viral on social media, netizens flooded Twitter with hilarious memes and jokes. Hashtag #Budeweiser has been trending on Twitter.
However, it was found that the story was published by a humour website foolishhumour.com, with the headline “Budweiser employee acknowledges having been pissing into beer tanks for 12 years“.
At the end of the website, there is a disclaimer saying, “This website is a humorous page whose sole purpose is entertainment. The content of Foolish Humor is fiction and does not correspond to reality.”
Hence, the viral claim that Budweiser employee acknowledges pissing in beer tanks is completely fake.
