A Los Angeles firefighter is under investigation after he allegedly wiped his butt with a letter requesting that he comply with the city’s Covid vaccine mandate.

The unidentified firefighter reacted to receiving the noncompliance letter on November 18 by dropping his pants and using it as toilet paper, according to colleagues who say they witnessed the incident.

So vigorous was the man’s wiping that he allegedly left “fecal matter” on the letter paper, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The evidently necessary hygiene procedure took place at Fire Station 69 in Pacific Palisades, according to the Stentorians of Los Angeles City, a group representing African American firefighters.

Calling the act a “terminable” offense, the Stentorians said in a statement they were “sickened and disgusted by this horrific display of unprofessionalism.”

The group’s statement included a photo of a man holding what looked like a discolored document, according to the Times.

The firefighter has been placed on paid administrative leave while the department investigates.

Vaccination compliance notices have been sent to city workers to ensure they understand the new vaccination mandate. The letters instruct workers to provide proof of vaccination by December 18 or else be taken off duty and eventually fired.

“No matter how our members react, all city employees must abide by the city ordinance — either file for an exemption, get vaccinated, or face termination,” an LAFD spokesperson told the Times.
