A waitress from a Japanese café in Hokkaido, Japan, was fired for mixing her own blood in the cocktails she served.
The Mondaiji café in Sapporo announced the news on Twitter, saying that they have fired the unidentified woman who made customers drinks — called orikaku, or original cocktail — mixed with fruits, colorful syrups and her own blood.
“Such an act is no different from part-time job terrorism and is absolutely not acceptable,” the café tweeted on April 2, adding that the business was shut down for a day to replace all of its drinking glasses.
The owner also tweeted a separate statement to apologize to customers for the incident.
“Please let me continue the store a little longer so I can be happy alone. I’ll clean the store, change glasses, and dispose of alcohol that may have been contaminated. Once again, I am very sorry to have caused you trouble this time,” the owner tweeted, according to Business Insider.
The café, which is located in the Susukino entertainment district, has a business name that loosely translates to “Problem Child Concept Café.”
It advertises itself as a space where “dark girls” and “problem children” who are also “the cutest” serve customers.
Japan, which is known for its concept cafés, has a variety of maid and butler cafés, many of which are located in Tokyo’s famed Akihabara district.
