Racist HOOTERS

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012...n-receipt?lite




A Korean-American man is suing a Hooters restaurant in Queens after a worker there identified him and his girlfriend on a receipt using a slur referring to Asians, they allege.


This story originally appeared on NBCNewYork.com.

After placing their order, the couple noticed their hostess and another worker standing at the computer giggling and "gawking at them," according to the lawsuit.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Advertise | AdChoicesWhen their hostess handed them their receipt, it had the word "Chinx" printed in the space reserved for the customer's name.

"Here we are in Fresh Meadows, and we have large populations of Asian Americans - Korean Americans, Chinese Americans, Indian Americans, you name it," said Baek. "It's happening right here in Fresh Meadows. I'm shocked."

Cha told the New York Times he was so distraught that he lost his appetite and, when he got home, threw the food away.

The unemployed information technology specialist emigrated from Korea in 2000 and lives in Philadelphia, according to the Times.

Nicole Conboy, director of human resources for the holding company that owns the Fresh Meadows restaurant and three Hooters on Long Island, said the 17-year-old hostess admitted to the act and immediately resigned, the Times reports.

The company's lawyer wrote in a letter to Baek, "It does not reflect the manner in which the restaurant is operated," and said the worker's conduct was "deplorable" and "egregious."

Earlier this year, the Papa John's company had to apologize after a worker in a Manhattan restaurant printed "lady ch1nky eyes" on a receipt for an Asian-American customer. The worker was dismissed.

That Hooters is near where I grew up. Im in the restaurant industry and honestly, I never agreed with these lawsuits. I can understand suing if the waiter punched you, or someone spilled hot soup on your kid, but a restaurant cannot control their employees to this extent. Firing the employee on the spot is the right thing to do, but I cannot see how someone can get financial damages from something like this.

You don't have to deal with fake flirting from pudgy loser chicks who can't make an honest living.

i fail to see how a restaurant is responsible for some mouth-breathing goon types in for the name when ringing up food.

complain and get the guy fired, sure. i don't see how money gets involved.

Yeah this. Our legal system doesn't have the time for stupid lawsuits like this. Take it up with the manager.

+1

Stuff like this is bound to happen when you hire minimum wage workers from not-so-nice areas of town

The sad part is, I've never been in a hooters in the NY/NJ area that has decent looking girls like they do in the south. Most of them are pretty busted actually.

This is America. Fart in the wrong direction and a lawsuit follows.

last hooters i went to ignored me 1/2 the time and opened my sauce pack. pretty sure i'm supposed to do that.

back in the day, most hooters girls didn't even talk to me, just passed me by and dropped off the checks.
