A user on TikTok sparked a controversy after claiming her boyfriend found a rubber glove in her Cheesecake Factory food.
In a video with over 223,000 views on Friday, TikTok user Brittany (@quesaritoluvr) recalled the incident.
“…We went to the cheesecake factory and my friend got the mac & cheese bites or fried mac and cheese or [whatever] and took a bite out of one of them and immediately started gagging and slowly pulling out of his mouth a whole plastic rubber glove which was fried to his mac and cheese bite,” Brittany recounts in the text overlay. “They didn’t even compensate us for our food.”

This wouldn’t be the first time something awkward has allegedly been found in a Cheesecake Factory meal.
In July 2020, a customer at a California cheesecake factory claimed that her husband found a latex glove in his fettuccine alfredo.
“We started eating our food and my husband ate his fettuccine alfredo and he took a bite and thought it was hard chicken or some overcooked cheese and when he found out it was a latex glove that had melted in it Food,” customer Laurie Graham told FOX 11.
A year later, another user on TikTok went viral after claiming he spotted what appeared to be black mold in his Cheesecake Factory dish.
In Brittany’s comments section, users shared their own Cheesecake Factory horror stories.
“They once gave me raw chicken and got mad when I asked for my meal to be remade,” claimed one user.
“One time they drizzled peanut sauce on my meal (not what I ordered) and I nearly went into anaphylactic shock,” said another.
“The Cheesecake Factory served me a glass in a drink (WHICH I DRINK) and they still charged me for it,” shared a third.
“I got a salad from the cheesecake factory and the exact same thing happened to me! I bit the glove and gagged,” claimed another TikToker. “They sent me a $15 gift card.”
However, some had positive experiences to share.
“I’ve been going to the Cheesecake Factory at least 3 times a year for the last 5 years and I’ve never experienced anything like it,” wrote one commenter.
