Waffle House says it has fired two employees at one of its Arkansas restaurants after video emerged showing a worker dipping her hair into a pot of water in the restaurant's kitchen.

Antonio Robinson tells Memphis, Tennessee, television station WREG (http://bit.ly/1UNNfmM ) that his friend found hair in his food when they dined last week at a Waffle House in Forrest City, about 90 miles east of Little Rock.
