Lawsuit filed in Brooklyn Federal Court
Here we go again. Another restaurant, another racist receipt. This time, it was found at a Hooters in Queens. In the space reserved for the customer's name, an employee typed out the word "Chinx" to identify a Korean American couple. According to NBCNewYork.com
, the couple noticed the hostess and another employee standing at the computer giggling and "gawking at them." Now the man, Kisuk Cha, is suing for racial discrimination.
It's the latest in a string of similar WTF incidents around the country, two right here in OC. Ah, the (not-so-distant) memories. Let's look back at the stupidity, shall we?
"Mc Stinkynigger," "Mc Nigshit" and "Mc Cottonwood" at Landmark Steakhouse
"Lady Chinky Eyes" at Papa Johns
Minhee Cho received this receipt at a New York City location. The image went viral when she tweeted, "Hey @PapaJohns just FYI my name isn't 'lady chinky eyes." Papa Johns apologized
and fired the employee.
"Ching" and "Chong" at Chick-fil-A
"Nigger Don't Tip" at Dominos
A North Carolina woman found the phrase on her receipt. The driver was fired and the woman received more than a dozen threatening phone calls.
