Worker fired for Burger King bath

Mr. Unstable is now Mr. Unemployed. The Burger King employee who took a soapy bath in a utility sink at work and then posted a video of it online doesn't work at Burger King anymore.

Timothy Tackett, who was fired, says he regrets the bath because a couple of other people also lost their jobs -- the co-worker who did the taping and the shift manager.

Burger King says two people were fired from their jobs at the restaurant in Xenia, Ohio, and a third quit.

The video was posted last week, with a worker who appeared to be naked calling himself "Mr. Unstable."

By the time a health inspector went to the restaurant, the sink that's used to clean large pieces of equipment had been sterilized.
