(Scroll down for video) A chef who worked at Chili’s in Florida, lost his job after posting topless photos of himself on Facebook, a spokesperson for Chili’s said in a statement.

The images were posted on Facebook, by the chef who calls himself Justin Speekz.

The photos show the shirtless worker in the kitchen of Chili’s in Valrico, and two of the photos show the shirtless man at a food preparation table.

The Department of Business and Professional Regulation, which regulates restaurants, said there seemed to be no violations in the photos because no food was being prepared at the time the photos were taken.

The restaurant passed a surprise inspection after the photos were published on Facebook. However, a spokesperson for Chili’s issued a statement, saying that the worker has been fired.

“Chili’s clearly does not encourage this type of behavior in our restaurants. We maintain high standards of food quality, safety and cleanliness, and we took immediate steps to ensure that the restaurant continues to follow these requirements. Moreover, we terminated his job after learning of his conduct.”
