Viral Wetherspoon Chef Says He Has Been Suspended Following TikTok Videos
The chef, known as J Salsa, posted various videos showing others how Wetherspoon dishes are made, including a traditional full English breakfast, chicken korma and halloumi fries.
While some processes surprised TikTokers, as items were cooked from fresh, others were a little more reliant on microwaves, which was met with a little less positivity.
J Salsa, whose TikTok handle is @_jahkt, has since posted a new video captioned 'I'm sorry Tim Martin', in which he said he had been suspended for the videos, adding that his actions had been a 'mistake'.
Explaining that the company's head office had found out about the videos and contacted the pub where he works, he said: "My manager has had a meeting with me today about the whole thing, the whole situation. They were really calm about it, to be honest.
"They understood and I explained my point of view - it was a mistake.
"I didn't mean to cause no harm to the company.
"Long story short, I'm suspended until my disciplinary meeting where I will find out if I get fired or not.
"So no more Wetherspoon's videos for now."
Despite his job being on the line, J Salsa promised that he had plenty more content for his fans, adding: "I still got more though. I've got steaks for you, I've got burgers for you, but for now I can't post them until I hear the decision."

So far, he has only posted a handful of recipe videos, but these have proven to be a huge hit with social media users, having racked up millions of views.
Footage of a chicken korma curry being made was met with some backlash, as it involved the chef heating up a packet of food.
One person commented: "You mean to tell me that I pay £7.50 for a microwave meal?"
Another said: "Think I'll just get a chicken korma from Tesco for £2.50."
However, the traditional breakfast received a lot of praise from people, as many of the elements of the dish had been freshly cooked to order.
Someone wrote: "Wow it isn't actually just microwave food I am shook."
Another person asked: "Wait they don't actually microwave everything?"
LADbible has contacted JD Wetherspoon for comment.
