A shocking video was posted on social media showing a man washing his feet in the sink right next to the coffee machine at a Roseville, Michigan 7-11. This sink is right in the middle of the store and is meant for washing hands, according to WXYZ News. The crazy thing is the man is an employee at the 7-eleven on Gratiot and 13 Mile Road in Roseville.
The sink is across from a grill station and right next to the coffee machine.
According to WXYZ, there is a debate on whether this is ok to do in the store…A debate??? Some people even came to the defense of this 7-Eleven employee!
Shocked customer Emily Divel recorded the video and posted it to social media: “As I walked in I could hear him loudly spitting in the sink.” Divel said he then put his foot in the sink.
WXYZ News confronted the employee who said it was a religious practice:
The employee said he’s Muslim and it’s mandatory he clean his feet, arms, and face at least five times a day.

One customer said that the prayer is understood but ashing the feet is over the top.
7-Eleven released a statement:
“We take the cleanliness of 7-Eleven stores very seriously, so thank you for making us aware of this incident and allowing us to investigate this matter.”
State health inspectors are investigating.
What do you think will happen to this employee?
