I’m a Dunkin’ employee – people are disgusted when I show them our ‘nasty’ clogged pipes but it doesn’t affect your meal
A DUNKIN DONUTS employee revealed what a day in her life really is like – and people are disgusted.
In a now-deleted video, the employee documented mud oozing from a clogged pipe at her shop – but it’s not what people think.

The woman, who claims to work at her local Dunkin’ Donuts location and is known on TikTok as @kaelin_1088, originally shared the “nasty” video on her page.
The horrific video showed thick brown, black and cream-colored goo allegedly coming out of a whistle in the kitchen, and it garnered tens of thousands of likes.
Additionally, viewers mistakenly assumed that the whistle was actually one of Dunkin’ Donuts’ coffee makers and began to badmouth the company.
However, in a follow-up video, Kaelin cleaned up the metaphorical mess.
“We had noticed that the pipes were like a backwater, water was flowing everywhere,” she explained.
“What came out was what was in the drains, that wasn’t in the coffee maker itself.”
Kaelin adds: “The coffee machine is cleaned regularly.
“It’s always clean.
“The blender, the ice bucket, everything is clean.”
In a second follow-up video, she even revealed that her Dunkin location recently passed a cleanliness inspection.
Kaelin said the original video was overblown for views, but she posted it to educate people about what it’s really like to work at one of America’s favorite coffee companies.
“I want people to know that I have to do this.
“That’s what we have to do in the real world for every job.”
Finally, she warned people that clogged drains aren’t just at Dunkin’ Donuts; they clog everywhere.
“Those are drains.
“The stuff clogs up the drains just like a drain would clog in your house,” she said.
And in response to a concerned comment on her first follow-up video, Kaelin reassured that the coffee is safe to drink.
In a statement to The Sun, Kaelin shared the same sentiment.
“What was shown in the video was simply the finished product of my cleaning of the pipes.
“The stuff that was down the drains never once touched anyone’s food or drink.
“I was able to clean the drain; I cleaned it very well with bleach.”
She also noted that many TikTokers thought she would be fired for posting her video and even said they wanted her fired.
However, she said she is still employed by the company and doesn’t think she deserves to be fired from her position.
“Until now I have not received any consequences for my actions, nor do I think I should receive any.
“The video was a joke and I don’t want anyone to take it [as] serious like me.”
Kaelin added that she didn’t expect the video to become so popular.
Dunkin’ Donuts did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Kaelin’s controversial video blew up as fellow employees at popular restaurant chains shared sensational secrets about their own locations.
For example, a supposed steakhouse chef revealed that his restaurant cooks its lobster tails in the microwave.
Also, a McDonald’s employee revealed the revealing difference between folded eggs and round eggs.
