Screenshots of the managers threatening staff to eat cockroaches for poor performance also emerged.

The video explicitly shows staff holding their noses as they down large plastic cups full to the brim of yellow liquid, later confirmed to be urine.

"If the sales goal has not been met by the end of this month, the team leader will have to eat three cockroaches for each failed sale", one text message read.

In other cases, employees reportedly had their heads shaved or were required to drink toilet water and urine for failing to complete tasks.

It had not paid its employees for the last two months.
