An employee at a Mississippi restaurant was fired after writing a racist slur on an African-American woman’s receipt.
Alexia Washington and a friend visited Who Dat’s in Oxford on Friday and placed a meal order.
But they were horrified when they received a receipt from a male worker at the drive-thru and saw a line reading: ‘Black b*****s in silver car.’
Washington said she immediately reported the inappropriate remark to the manager of Who Dat’s, who made the employee apologize.
However she was still disturbed by the restaurant worker’s vile message and posted an image of it on Facebook.
‘My car isn’t silver, for one. For two, I wasn’t rude.
‘I didn’t have any type of hostility. He didn’t have any hostility with me,’ she said in a now deleted Facebook post.
She claims she had requested that the employee who printed the slur on the receipt be fired, as she felt ‘racially ridiculed and demeaned as a African American female.’
She decided to post her message on social media after her queries to the manager seemed to go unheard.
‘I seek justice for this hate crime and I will no longer remain silent,’ she wrote.
The drive-thru worker at Who Dat restaurant in Oxford, Mississippi, posted a racist slur at the top of her receipt which read: ‘Black b*****s in silver car’
‘I’ve lived in Oxford for 5 years and I’m still having to deal with this type of ignorance. I’m not a rude or hateful person.
‘I was not rude when I was at this establishment and was greeted with this kind of service. I will not stand for it.’
Shortly after her post, Who Dat’s owner Wylie Coleman posted a message on Facebook saying that the employee’s contract was terminated.
He said he sat down with Washington for over an hour on Tuesday to discuss the matter.
Alexia Washington said she was horrified by the incident and decided to post about it on Facebook, saying she felt the employee should be fired over his racist comment
Washington said she immediately reported the inappropriate remark to the manager of Who Dat’s, who made the employee apologize
He added: ‘Unexplainable to me were the words on the receipts. The first step was taken by myself to the employee who was informed that they were terminated immediately.
‘Ms. Washington & I decided this was necessary because the food service could be jeopardized & that is the only way to start moving forward with what transpired.
‘We agreed upon to take steps to ban this & any individuals that feel in any way, they may be allowed to marginalized people to a word or level.’
He claimed Washington was sweet and communicative during their interaction.
He added: ‘ I am not only apologizing to her but to everyone & anyone that could subject to a label in life.’
