Chick-fil-A Cashier Fired For Mocking Asian Customers

Chik-Fil-A racist Asian receiptsThere's no shortage of consumers who love the tasty sandwiches served up by fast-food chain Chick-fil-A. But a recent incident in Southern California showed poor taste on the part of a cashier who mocked two Asian customers.

According to the Los Angeles Times, rather than typing the consumers' actual names, the employee instead noted their names as "Ching" and "Chong" on the receipts.

Photos of the receipts were posted on a Tumblr account belonging to University of California, Irvine, student Kelvin Lee, a friend of the customers. The post then spread through the blogosphere, attracting more negative attention to the Atlanta-based company, which is already under fire by some groups for its openly Christian roots and connection to conservative stances, the Times notes.

Chick-fil-A's lack of political correctness didn't escape Lee, who posted this comment on his Tumblr page shortly after the incident: "I realize Chick-fil-A hasn't exactly had the best track record when it comes to issues of social justice, but I don't think the horrible mistake on the part of one individual is reason enough to launch a witch hunt."

For it's part, Chick-fil-A, through a spokesman, told the Times that the employee's actions in no way represent the views of the company and blamed it on a lack of maturity on the part of the cashier, who was fired shortly afterward.

Still, Lee says, "There's no way the person who hired this woman would have been able to know she'd do something so stupid."

Chick Fil A doesn't have a bad track record in social justice!! You are lying. They give their employees an entire day off. They are an amazing employer to work for. AND they give a way tons of free food. I personally have benefited to the sound of $3000 in free Chick Fil A, much of which I have given to the poor.

Huh? What kind of society allows anyone or anything to be "under fire" for adhering to Christianity?
That's the real problem here.
If anyone thinks it isn't, try picturing a person or a group being "under fire" for adhering to Judaism, for example.

This woman, she was just an imbecile, regardless of her proclaimed faith or lack thereof.

That's stupid beyond imagination. Would you put "faggot" as someone's name on a docket. These names are clearly intended to be derogatory, you must be deluding yourself if you think this is "PC". It has nothing to do with being PC, it has everything to do with a shocking lack of social ability, or an amazing lack of intelligence (even Forrest Gump wouldn't do this)

NO ONE should eat that food. It's a crime against your health. Plus, it's owned by a company that supports a -very- hateful social group, namely the Jesus and Mary Sunday Morning Magic Show(tm) where they eat human flesh and drink human blood. Horrifying!

What's the idea of putting names on receipts? It only slows down the ordering process even more. It was pretty damn stupid to substitute their names for ones she could actually spell, but even dumber still was having customer names on the receipts in the first place! Just assign them a number on the receipt and call out the number when the order is ready, like at Dairy Queen. (And if they were two black men with tongue-twisting names, and she was a white lady in her late 50's-60's, she might have called them Amos and Andy, and THEN the chicken would have really hit the fan!)

All you bigots who make your comments under anonymous names: It just shows what cowards you are to hide behind the Internet to spout your bigotry. You have no respect for other people and least of all for yourself.
