Popular restaurant chain Matsuya has been hit by a Twitter scandal after a pictured shared online by a customer went viral.
The customer posted a picture of himself putting the tip of a sauce bottle — also used by other customers — in his mouth. The tweet rapidly went viral, and the boy, a university student, has even had his identity exposed online.
This incident is one of the first bakkata incidents — or “twatter” incidents as we like to call them — of 2015. Regular readers will remember a spate of these incidents in previous years, where fools went viral for posting pictures of themselves in convenience store freezer cabinets, messing around in the kitchens of a major food chain, and deep-frying a pair of scissors.
Man Puts Matsuya Sauce Bottle To His Mouth And Kisses It; First Twatter To Appear In A While
Twitter is a convenient tool where you can post tweets and photographs easily, but on the flip side there are so many incidents that occur precisely because of this ease of use. Photographs that would usually never get shared immediately go viral when posted on Twitter.
The user deleted his Twitter account after he realizing he’d gone viral; however, by then it was too late, and his name, his Facebook account, and even the university he attended had been identified. It is unclear at which branch of Matsuya the incident took place, but a branch in Aichi Prefecture is the suspect.
In the past there were a series of incidents in which people were putting sauce bottles up their nostrils in sushi restaurants, but this is the first act by a twatter that we’ve seen for a while. At worst, this could lead to all the sauce bottles in every branch of Matsuya being replaced, and it is even possible that the university student in question could be charged with forcible obstruction of business.

Matsuya should hunt this guy down. Properly.

There’s nothing for it but to become a hikkikomori.

This is bioterrorism!
Dude’s in the shit now.
This is gonna be millions of yen in damages.
They should sue for damages, like 10,000,000 yen or something?
These twatters think they’ll stand out from the crowd if they do something stupid. They don’t have enough brains to anticipate what will happen to their lives after they do it.
Twatters just won’t die ww
Been a while since we’ve had an orthodox twatter. Good times.
I’d been looking for a straight up one like this.
Guess it must be the summer break.
This kind of thing will be on the rise again this summer.
There’s gonna be guys sticking that shit up their asses, too.
Because that sauce bottle is just the right size to get in easily.
