El Paso, Texas is no stranger to crime sadly. Earlier this month, a Dunkin' Donuts in Northeast El Paso, Texas made the local news thanks to 3 employees threaten a customer in the drive thru on Saturday, December 9th. It made the local news & it became one of the craziest stories talked about all week.

If you haven't seen the story, here's KTSM's coverage of the story.

The El Paso Dunkin Donuts recently has been shown on a national news network too.

If you've been on Instagram, one extremely popular news page is Domislivenews; a page that currently has over 676k followers. On Tuesday afternoon, they shared the story on their page, which gave the story even more circulation online.

The reactions to the story, as you would expect, have been quite savage. Here were some of the comments that I found on a quick scroll on the Domislivenews page:

  • "No way they worked at Dunkin donuts " - quuinnnnn
  • "Donuts are never that serious " - v4khtangi
  • "America Guns on Dunkin " -  jahswaveofficial
  • "Dunkin’ serving Hollow Points instead of Donuts" - derek.robins.121
  • "They were tryna turn bro into a donut" - brycetaranto
  • "The Mexican 3 Stooges" - jason4444888
  • "They think they covering for Gus Fring? S*** can’t be that serious yo " - hunterr.267
  • "Bro was LITERALLY just doing his JOB " - imknight808
  • And of course there were some comments from people FROM El Paso like biggeststeppa44: "Yeah I live in El Paso they down bad "

So yeah...El Paso has gone viral again; I'm not going to give my opinion on the matter. I WILL say that the next time El Paso goes viral, I just hope it's for something positive this time...
