“I’ll never eat at tht mf unless i see it cooked,” he wrote in the caption. 

Viewers agreed, bringing up their less-than-savory experiences with Wendy’s and feeling vindicated by Berry’s TikTok.

“This is why i got food poisoning and never ate there again,” one person commented

“I WORK AT WENDYS I CONFIRM THIS,” one viewer affirmed. Another simply wrote, “I can confirm.”

One alleged worker got more graphic saying, “ We really do… somebody was in grill saying the meat looked old and green and the manager said cook it anyway.”

“Not my wendy’s, y’all stay safe doe,” one person refuted.

“I worked at wendy’s and we never did that y’all just… different,” another worker claimed.

The TikTok didn’t turn off everyone, though. Many viewers didn’t really care. Those folks chimed in under the video, saying they’d continue to eat at the fast-food chain.

“It still be bussing tho and ima continue to eat it cause it’s my favorite,” one fan wrote.
