Korean immigrant sues Hooters

NEW YORK -- A Korean immigrant has sued a Hooters restaurant in New York City for racial discrimination after discovering an ethnic slur on his food receipt.

According to the lawsuit filed by Kisuk Cha, the computer receipt that he and his girlfriend received for a July 1 takeout order in Queens contained the slur "Chinx."

The suit was filed Monday in Brooklyn federal court.

Cha's attorney, Daniel Baek, says that his client was shocked and threw away the food when he got home.

A lawyer for the restaurant franchise says the food server whose name appeared on the receipt was cleared after a hostess admitted that she wrote the slur.

Edward McCabe says the hostess has apologized and resigned.

The suit seeks damages, and names Hooters of America, the owners of the Queens franchise and the two workers.

When you tend bar or wait tables you need a name on a check you are holding. Often it is a table number. . ..but people more around at happy hour. Still it does not need to be a slur. . .it can be red shirt - black daniels.
