Taco Bell cashier out after putting racial slur on receipt

Taco Bell cashier out after putting racial slur on receipt

Lee said, when he confronted the cashier about the receipt, he made a decision to let it pass after hearing his explanation and apology.

First-year University of Pennsylvania Ph.D student In Young Lee, who was born in Korea, shared a pictured of the receipt on Facebook, and detailed his side of the story.

She said the manager "failed to deal with the situation very respectfully and cordially" and cautioned that there should be a "larger dialogue" among companies like Taco Bell about educating employees on using racial slurs.

In Young Lee, 25, said that he and his friends went to the fast-food chain at about 1:40 a.m. ET on Saturday and placed an order using the name "Steve" since cashiers often misspell or mispronounce his real name.

The Taco Bell employee who who used the racial slur has since been fired, reports the the Daily Pennsylvanian.

"When I confronted him, he said that there are three Steves in the restaurant so he needed to differentiate. It made me even more upset that he was protecting his case rather than apologizing so I lashed out and told him that it is extremely disrespectful to use such a derogatory slur", Fox News, quoted Lee as saying. "Normally I would let things like this go but under the current political climate I find it very important to address such issues and voice them loudly and clearly".

According to Lee, he ordered his food and gave the cashier a fake name of "Steve" to save time since trying to explain the spelling of his name is "inconvenient for both the cashier and me", he told CBS Philly. But quickly apologized after other patrons in the restaurant started to berate him.

Ex-friend says Florida killer sold knives at school
They hadn't realized until after the Valentine's Day shooting that Cruz must have kept a key to the gun safe for himself. If he left a candy wrapper or dish out, Kimberly Snead said Cruz behaved as if he was "afraid to be in trouble".

The interaction was normal, until Lee says he received his receipt and was angered at what was printed.

Lee told CBS Philly he felt bad about making a scene, but added he couldn't believe what happened and hopes by raising awareness it can be a learning experience for the employees.

"The manager tried to calm me down, he said I was being disrespectful by snatching my food".

Taco Bell did not release the name of any of the employees involved.

"We do not tolerate this behavior".

Taco Bell the franchisee is retraining staff and that management has apologised directly to Lee.

Lee said that he "didn't think it was necessary" for the employee to be fired and was anxious that the termination might make the employee "more resentful, rather than acknowledging he's done something wrong". I think he was ignorant, but I want people to be more conscious about how they think, that's more what I'm aiming for.
