Woman Fired From Taco Bell for Previously Working in Porn

LE††UCE PREY

Lonna Wells worked in the porn industry but stopped due to COVID-19 concerns. She applied for work at the Newport, Arkansas Taco Bell, a town of about 8,000. She was honest about her previous sex work and was hired.

She says she took the Taco Bell job to pay bills, buy groceries and put food on the table, she has young children.

Lonna Wells was in the bathroom, getting ready for work, doing her hair and makeup when she received a call that she won’t soon forget.

Hey, I just want to let you know that your job here is done, and I’m very sorry to have to let you go,” the voice on the other end of the line said.

When she asked what she’d done wrong, the person claimed that a customer had lodged a formal complaint that there was a woman working the drive-thru who was doing internet porn, and as a God-fearing Christian they didn’t feel comfortable giving the establishment their business. It was 7:30 a.m., just 30 minutes before she was supposed to clock in, and Wells was in a state of shock. She had just been fired from her local Taco Bell after less than week on the job, in the middle of a deadly pandemic, for being a sex worker.

Wells, 33, said “I would work a nine-hour shift with no lunch breaks—because in Arkansas, if you can eat on the job, they don’t have to give you lunch breaks,” says Wells. “I was working hard.”
