Papa John's Employee Calls Woman 'Lady Chinky Eyes' on Receipt

How stupid can some employees be...like seriously.



Quote:
Papa John's has apologized after an employee typed a racial slur on a receipt to a customer Friday at one of its locations in New York City.

Minhee Cho posted an image of the receipt on Twitter, which called her "lady chinky eyes."

"Hey @ PapaJohns just FYI my name isn't 'lady chinky eyes,'" Cho tweeted.

The image went viral, and many tweeted complaints to Papa John's, such as "Your employees are your brand."

Papa John's replied to many complaints via Twitter, noting that the employee was being fired.

"We are very upset by recent receipt issue in New York & sincerely apologize to our customer. Franchise employee involved is being terminated," Papa John's tweeted.

This isn't the first time a restaurant has come under fire over employees using racial or ethnic slurs on receipts.

Last month, a cashier at a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Irvine, Calif., was fired after allegedly mocking Asian-American customers, ABC News Los Angeles station KABC-TV reported.

The cashier reportedly used "Ching" and "Chong" in the customer identification line on the receipts.

Photos of those receipts have also gone viral online.

In a written statement, a representative for the fast-food chain told KABC that "the individual clearly violated our operating standards."

"The matter was addressed and discussed immediately with the guests on the spot; and a confirmation was provided that the employee was immediately dismissed for the individual behavior," the statement said.

Couple weeks ago I went to Champs at Metro near the food court looking for a D Rose jersey. I asked the sales rep and he said "All the flipinos beat you to it man!"



I am Chinese. Wasn't really offended but surprised that an employee would say such a thing.

not exactly professional but i wouldn't write it up as a racist remark.

If the lady chinky eyes story happened to me i'd probably laugh at the employee...if they are gonna diss me at least get it right..i'm Korean (judging from the last name Cho)

Being racist against asians is as effective as a black person calling a white man a cracker.

It does nothing. It's not like China isn't going to take over the world anyway , soon PapaJohns guy is gonna be working for a chingy dingy boss.
