A porn star was fired from her job at a fast food restaurant after a former employee lodged a complaint over her OnlyFans and X-rated adult videos.

Lonna Wells, 33, had been working at Mexican fast-food chain Taco Bell for less than a week before a former employee found out about her online sex work and lodged a complaint.

She had been featured on PornHub, netting Wells two AVN Award nominations, known colloquially as the Oscars of Porn, but had to stop performing due to Covid.

The adult actress, who has an OnlyFans account, picked up a job at Taco Bell in Arkansas to help pay the bills, but was fired one morning minutes before clocking in.

Taco Bell have denied her past was the reason she was sacked, saying she instead violated policies.

According to Lonna's GoFundMe appeal, the colleague "used religion and christianity to push adult work like I was Satan in a drive thru window."

In an interview with the Daily Beast, Lonna said she was upset they didn’t give her the heads-up and instead fired her on the spot.

She told the Daily Beast: "They couldn’t have even given me a heads-up, or waited until I got there to say something.

"I just started bawling. I don’t know if it was because I was upset, or I was ticked, or a little bit of both."

Lonna said she "started bawling" at the news, and even claims she had informed hiring manager, April Garcia, about her experience as a sex worker, who told her it wouldn't be a problem.

She said: "I was very open about it and said, ‘Hey, this is what I do as a job right now and I’ve been doing it since 2017, is this going to cause any problems."

The star claims Garcia told her: "It’s not going to cause any problems. Whatever you do in your spare time is your business."

Lonna has now started a GoFundMe appeal to help her with bills and food, and even plans to challenge Arkansas State laws to help "protect" people in the industry within the area.

She said: "I live in a state where you can get terminated for anything and it still be legal. They don't even have to tell you why you were let go.

"The only things they can't discriminate against is: disabilities, sex, race, religion, pregnancy, or if a female has had an abortion. So, therefore, I can't do anything about it."

In a statement, Taco Bell said: "Taco Bell team members come from diverse backgrounds and experiences and all are welcome into the Taco Bell family.

"This former team member worked for a franchise location and the franchisee has informed us that the accusations made are not accurate and that she was instead terminated for violation of their policies and procedures."
