Wetherspoon Chef Who Went Viral On TikTok Says He Has Now Been Sacked
The Wetherspoon chef who shared kitchen secrets via his TikTok account says he has now been fired.
J Salsa, 19, claims he was hauled up before pub bosses after posting clips of himself creating various dishes, such as a full English breakfast and curries.
His full English clip shocked many 'Spoon's fans after it showed all the items being cooked from scratch, while in another clip he showed how he microwaved curries.
After his videos went viral - and came to the attention of management at the pub - J told his followers he had been suspended while they investigated.
In an update on TikTok today, he explained: "To my expectations, I've been fired... I've been withdrawn from JD Wetherspoon.
"I'm not surprised at all because at the end of the day, I did break company policy.
"I did have my phone in the kitchen and I did post work stuff on social media.
"Basically, they brought up the fact that I continued to post about my ongoing investigation like when I announced the suspension.
"I feel like I would have been fired either way to be honest because that s*** went viral.

"That s*** hit headline news, it was crazy, it's actually mad what's gone on in these two weeks.
"I saw my face everywhere and it's weird still. Thank you for all the love and support, it's actually mad.
"Now I'm just going to try and make a bad situation and make it positive.
"I might just do some cooking videos at home, that's what you were saying I should do. I could make Wetherspoon type food at home."
J previously claimed that while items such as burgers, sausages, bacon, eggs and steaks were all cooked fresh, other dishes including the curries arrived at the pub frozen and were microwaved.
Speaking to the Sun before he was fired, he said: "The curries are microwaved - I thought that was obvious. How do you get a curry in five minutes for five pounds?
"They're quite nice even if they are microwaved."
Wetherspoon declined to comment when approached by LADbible.
