Remember last week when 78th and 2nd wrote about Pinkberry on 82nd and how the lines are insane and run out to door and down the block? It seems the place is equally as popular with rodents.
Mice were caught on camera, running around on the floor early Sunday morning, by ABC Eyewitness News in New York.
When we were told about rodents running wild inside this yogurt hot spot, we decided to take a look. What we found can only be described in one word — wow.
It seems an Upper East Side new comer Pinkberry has a problem with mice.
And more from ABC News:
We alerted customers about the mice. But today’s discovery didn’t affect the line that did continue to snake out the door.
“It doesn’t look like it was on the food, just on the floor,” said one of customers. “But it is still gross.”
The NY Post also checked in with Pinkberry fans to get their reaction. A total revolt? Maybe a petition to get the place shut down? Did I hear someone say lawsuit? Wait for it…
“As long as there’s no rats in the ice cream, I’m OK,” said Josh Feldman, who was willing to wait 20 minutes on line for a serving of the dessert Paris Hilton asked for in jail.
His brother, Seth, said, “There are rats all over the city. I’m OK with it.”
Yeah, they’re all over the city, so it’s cool. Like the hookers and the drug dealers and the murderers. No biggie. As long as they’re all not directly IN the ice cream, we’re good.
The real criminals are the ones behind this ABC News, with their “reporting” and their “investigative journalism.” Why do they have to ruin everything?
