Walmart Customer Terrorizes Twitter By Gargling Mouthwash, Spitting It Back Into Bottle

People will do anything to go viral these days. Most stunts only imperil the idiots who do them, but there’s a new trend where people are getting a brief burst of Internet fame for doing disgusting things that ruin sh*t for everyone else.

These things seem to be happening mostly at Walmart, probably because it is an enormous box store with not nearly enough (underpaid) employees to protect its products from being defiled.

According to LadBible, it started with a woman who licked a container of ice cream, then placed it back in the Walmart freezer case in Lufkin, Texas.

As gross as that is, the response to the ice cream-licking was pretty absurd: the police investigated the video and every container of ice cream was removed from shelves. The police said that the woman identified in the video would be charged with a felony! Representatives for Blue Bell Tin Roof ice cream, the tainted brand, said:

“The safety of our ice cream is our highest priority, and we work hard to maintain the highest level of confidence of our customers. Food tampering is not a joke, and we will not tolerate tampering with our products. We are grateful to the customers who alerted us and provided us with information.”

It’s true, food tampering is definitely not a joke. Except it has become one. Now Twitter user @Bameronkaii is getting attention for this truly revolting stunt they pulled on a bottle of Walmart mouthwash. 

“Bameron Nicole Smith” of San Jose, California, is shown strolling through the oral care aisle of the Walmart store saying, “Girl, it has been one musty f—ing morning.”

Smith is then shown taking a bottle of Listerine mouthwash from the shelf, opening it, taking a swig, gargling, and then spitting the contents back inside and putting the bottle back on the shelf.

“Mmm, nice and minty and fresh. Thank you guys,” they say, before walking off. That’s comedy, folks! Naturally, people are horrified:

As horrible as that gargle and spit take is, I’m thinking more about the long-term repercussions of product tampering becoming a trend. I can barely open a bottle of Tylenol as it is. Are there gonna be child-proof lids on all the toothpaste and Pringles? Will you need a secret code to open a Hershey’s bar? We need some trust in the dessert aisle, or life is just going to get more and more annoying.

Later, @Bameronkaii showed some receipts that indicated they did buy the mouthwash—or at least have bought mouthwash at some point? 

And that’s how you get your viral fame while sidestepping a felony conviction.
