Below were some of the reactions to @mujano_004's opinion:
"They don't joke with their brand but they want to use Ajinomoto to kill somebody. That's not joking with their brand?"
"They don’t joke with their brand but one can taste the hardship in Nigeria from their fried rice."
"Pls they are security officers opening doors they can dance it's allowed u can caution not sack."

"They don't joke with their brand and eat chicken pie only to find bones in it. Or meat pie that's not properly baked?"
"To me, this is wrong cos they are securities, they aren't there to entertain but to protect. Domino's attendants entertain, but I don't think Domino's would tolerate their securities do this."
"And this will make people not buy from them? Explain."
Sacked security men get free salaries
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that luck smiled on the two young Nigerian men who were sacked from their jobs as security men at a restaurant for dancing on duty.
News of their sacking was greeted with more condemnation from Nigerians than commendation for the restaurant's management.
One of such persons who condemned their sacking was a Nigerian man based in Canada identified as Emma Duru. Emma went on to offer to place the young men on salaries for months as well as get them new jobs.
