The photo was uploaded to Reddit where social media users were quick to share their disgust.
‘The chicken might be raw but he is definitely cooked,’ one wrote.
Another added: ‘Can someone please check to see if this man is still alive?’
‘Is that raw chicken? Please tell me the photo is deceptive and it’s pieces of ham rolled up or something,’ a third person wrote.
Another social media user joked the man may have been pressed for time.
‘He doesn’t have time to waste sitting down to eat, or putting shoes on, or cooking his food. Few understand this grindset,’ they wrote.
‘I can smell the salmonella from here,’ a second added.
Some theorised the chicken enthusiast might have a good reason for his unusual taste.
‘He wants a week off work,’ one person wrote.
‘Someone is trying to get a few sick days,’ another wrote.
‘If he’s trying to lose weight, this will probably work,’ a third added.
Photos of the man (above) have been widely shared on social media with commenters debating whether the snack was simply gross or part of a strategic plan to call in sick at work
