In a video shared by @allabouttrh on Instagram, Joe seemingly told the worker to “open wide” – before pouring tequila into her mouth.
After several seconds of continual pouring, the employee reached for the bottle to move it away, as someone in the background told Joe to “stop” – because the woman was “working.”
At the beginning of the video, the employee looked uncomfortable, though she eventually smiled into the camera as if to be polite.
After the shot was poured, Joe appeared to take a bow for the camera.
In the comments of the post, fans shared their surprise.
“Imagine if louis did this ???? the double standard is crazy,” wrote one fan.
Another expressed, “[The employee] looks so uncomfortable. Watch all the Melissa lovers see nothing wrong with this.”
A different user stated simply, “This is gross and uncomfortable to watch.”
A fourth fan accused Joe of being a “drunk” who is “always pushing booze on everyone.”
Another user added, “That cringe face she made before she knew she was being filmed ???? Melissa is [in] the back ground yelling ????.”
A different viewer, however, defended the star’s actions. “Well its ????Joe,” wrote the fan, “and we know it’s all JUST FUN!!”
