This is the horrifying moment a grocery shopper was seen slurping soup directly from the ladle of a grocery store hot bar.
The video, which appears to have been filmed at a Mariano’s grocery store, in the metropolitan Chicago area, rapidly went viral and has been seen by more than a million viewers since it was posted earlier this week.
Viewers were left horrified by the shopper's lack of hygiene or etiquette, branding it 'gross' and 'worse than double dipping.'
'Something to think about the next time you eat at the salad bar,' an individual who shared the video to Twitter Saturday said.
'NO SOUP FOR YOU! So wrong on so many levels,' another user added.
The brash man, who appeared to be middle-aged, is shown taking a total of four slurps from the ladle before placing the spoon back inside.
Several other disturbed Twitter users commented on the video.
One said: 'I am not really one for confrontation, but I doubt that I would have been able to keep my mouth shut if I had seen that.
'What is WRONG with people? At minimum, I hope someone notified staff to get rid of that container. Smh'
Another added: What is wrong with this guy? And why didn't the jack** recording it call the idiot out?'
And one more said: 'This is the scariest thing I've seen on Halloween so far...'
