Broadway and TV actor Jeremy Jordan, who is best known for his role on Supergirl, just revealed on Social media that eating at Chipotle almost cost him his life, reported People.
Jordan alleges the eating at the fast casual chain has sent him to the hospital. He’s calling out Chipotle, which has been criticized for E. coli outbreaks in the past, for their mistake.
On Thursday night, Jordan posted his first ever Instagram story. He made it a PSA for why people shouldn’t eat at Chipotle.
“I know I’ve advocated for them in the past, but they’re terrible,” declared Jordan. In the video, Jordan is seen looking pale, and he showed viewers the IV in his arm.
“I, as you can see, am in the hospital and I have fluids in my arm because the food did not agree with me, and I almost died.”
In addition to the aforementioned E. coli outbreaks, Chipotle has been in the news for norovirus infections, and recently footage was shown of rodents falling from the ceiling in a Dallas location.
“I just want to thank my wife for being amazing and talking me off the ledge when I was on the phone about to die and Chris Wood for holding my hair back metaphorically,” he says. “I love all of you; thank you so much. It’s been a night.”
Jordan, 32, was set to perform at a ‘salute to Broadway’ concert in Houston on Friday. He told his fans that he hopes to be able to go through with the concert, but he hasn’t updated fans on his current status.
Chipotle responded to Jordan’s claims. They gave a statement to people, saying they are doing their best to communicate with Jordan.
“We are sorry to hear that Jeremy is sick and have attempted to get in touch with him directly regarding where and when he ate so we can look into this. We take all claims seriously, but at this time we can’t confirm any link to Chipotle,” said the representative. “We are always committed to making things right for our guests and will do the same for Jeremy when we are able to reach him.”
