A former Domino’s employee said he was accused of vandalizing a Domino’s pizza shop and was told by his boss to write a false confession.
Kaleb (@stopitkaleb) posted a video of a fight between him and his boss on June 7th. In it, his boss says that he has video footage of Kaleb vandalizing the store and that costs for damages will be sent to him once he makes a written confession. Kaleb then threatens to fire him and says he feels threatened by his boss.
“I didn’t do shit,” Kaleb says of the charge of trashing the store. He then tries to leave saying his boss won’t let him open the door and does so.
Kaleb then says “fuck you” to his boss and gets fired, and his boss says “the sheriff is coming to see Kaleb”.
“The sheriff is coming to see you, or you can write a confession of what you did,” Kaleb’s boss tells him. Kaleb demands to be let out of the room, saying his boss “can’t hold up [him]” in the room.
Shortly thereafter, Kaleb leaves and says “Fuck you” to his boss a few more times.
“I tried to leave but they wouldn’t let me so I left,” Kaleb wrote in the video’s caption. As of Thursday, the video had almost 10,000 likes before it was deleted.
Some commenters on Kaleb’s video tagged Domino’s Pizza’s TikTok account to bring the company’s attention. Others expressed their belief that Kaleb did not destroy the store.
“They don’t put you on camera if they want you to write a confession,” @itssmokey8 commented.
“He can’t block the door like that,” wrote @user5354692924515.
Others spoke of confinement, meaning law enforcement officers forcing someone to commit a crime.
“Honestly you pulled this off really well without any physical reaction,” commented @winstonschnauzer. “Talk to a lawyer about their arrest, they can’t.”
The Daily Dot reached out to Kaleb via Instagram direct message and to Domino’s via email.
