New Orleans Restaurant Employee Fired For Racist Receipt
A French Quarter restaurant said an employee who printed a racial slur on a customer’s receipt has been fired.
An image of a receipt with the words “N—– 100% Dislike” from Huck Finn’s Café on Decatur Street was circulated Thursday on social media.
A woman who posted a picture of the receipt on Twitter said her friend was the customer. It was shared almost 400 times.
The customer could not immediately be reached.
Huck Finn’s Café posted a statement on its website apologizing for the employee’s actions. The restaurant said it was “shocked and appalled.”
“The unfortunate actions of this one employee do not mirror the mission of Huck Finn’s Café’s firm non-discrimination policy, and we are extremely apologetic for any inconvenience this may have caused.”
The restaurant said in a Twitter post it was “working around the clock to rectify the situation.”
When reached by phone, a restaurant employee said the business had no further comment.
Do you think the employee should have been fired?
