The receipt from Huck Finn’s Cafe has “N—-r 100% dislike” typed beneath an order for a Thin Catfish Platter, Fox8Live reports.
Tania Dall, the woman who received the receipt, told WWLTV that the manager told her that this was the server’s last shift when asked why he wasn’t being fired on the spot.
“Huck Finn’s Cafe is shocked and appalled at the actions of one of its employees, who was terminated immediately after management found out they violated company policy,” a statement from the restaurant reads. “Huck Finn’s Cafe is committed to treating everyone, employees and customers alike, with dignity and respect. The unfortunate actions of this one employee do not mirror the mission of Huck Finn’s Cafe’s firm non-discrimination policy, and we are extremely apologetic for any inconvenience this may have caused. We have been serving customers from around the world for more than 6 years, and our employees work their hardest to go above and beyond to ensure visitors have a pleasant and respectful experience at Huck Finn’s Cafe.”
On Twitter, the restaurant added that it is “working around the clock to rectify the situation.”
This is not the first time a racially inflammatory receipt has caused a stir.
Recently five black men claimed that they were upset at being called “5 black guys” at a North Dallas restaurant.
The men were at Zenna Thai and Japanese on Rosemeade Parkway in North Dallas when one man noticed the phrase “5 black guys” printed on their receipt.
“I looked at it and seen where it said customer name, and it said ‘5 black guys,’” Jarian Walker said, according to NBC Washington. “I was like, ‘OK, wow.’”
Also, a Tennessee man accused of writing the “N” word on the receipt of a black Red Lobster waitress sued both the waitress and the restaurant chain.
