WTF! Fired Domino's Worker Complains That No Other Fast Food Place Will Hire Her

The Domino's Pizza employee who last month posted an online video of a co-worker violating a host of public health codes, grossing out millions of people and causing a public relations headache for the international franchise, is apologizing for the incident and says the backlash from the stunt is preventing her from finding new work.

Kristy Hammonds, 31, tells ABC News that she has become a local pariah and cannot find work to support her two children after filming her co-worker in the kitchen of a Conover, N.C., Domino's putting cheese in his nose, blowing mucous on a sandwich, appearing to pass gas on food and putting a sponge he would use to wash dishes between his buttocks.

Hammonds, a registered sex offender who faces felony food tampering charges from the Domino's incident, says she has been turned down at several area fast food restaurants, including Taco Bell and McDonalds, when employers recognized her name and face.

Hammonds and Michael Setzer, her 32-year-old co-worker and the video's star, were both arrested after the video was posted online, and charged with food tampering, a felony in North Carolina. The store at which they worked was shut down to be restaffed and disinfected, according to a Domino's spokesman.

"This is Michael's special Italian sandwich," Setzer says on the video, before taking a piece of mozzarella cheese from his nose and putting it on a to-be-delivered sandwich.

Hammonds apologized for making the video, which was cut into multiple segments and distributed widely across the Web.

Soon after the video went viral Hammonds e-mailed the company to say it was a hoax and none of the food depicted was ever delivered.

She says her inability to find work has made it difficult to raise her two children, aged 4 and 8 months, whom she conceived with the aid of a sperm donor. The baby, she said, has special needs.
