A celebrity chef in Slovakia is kicking himself over what has to be one of the most epic fails (or rails?) in the history of live TV.

During a live broadcast of the Slovakian TV show Telerano, the camera cut to 36-year-old chef Ľubomír Herko, who was coincidentally cutting a line of what appears to be cocaine with a credit card. If that weren’t incriminating enough, a rolled up bill can conspicuously be seen next to his fatty line of white girl.  


While all of this can be considered speculation (after all, he could just be playing with sugar), once Herko realizes he’s been caught on live camera, his geeked-out grimace says it all.

According to TV Markiza, the network that airs Telerano, Herko was only joking around. However, the people of Slovakia have spoken, and a recent poll declared 85% of viewers think Herko should be dropped from the show.

According to an April 2015 study, substance abuse among the food service industry is quite common. The U.S. has the highest rates of “past month illicit drug use,” with 19.1% of restaurant workers admitting to the use of drugs, which is twice the rate of the general population.
