A New Orleans waiter was fired this week after allegedly giving a group of customers a receipt that had a slur on it.
The New York Daily News reports that Dakota Crochet, 23, was fired from a French Quarter sports bar after writing "N----- 100% dislike" on a check that he gave to a group of black customers.
One of the customers is considering a lawsuit and demanded a personal apology from the waiter and the restaurant's management.
There has been several different reactions to the situation, one waiter was quite surprised by Crochet's actions, while another felt that he knew what he was doing.
"I printed those receipts 50 times a day. I know for a fact he knew it would show up on his receipt," a former Huck Finn's waitress told the Daily News. "I was like, are you that hateful that you would put that on the receipt?"
"When I saw it, I wanted to know who the hell printed it. When I saw it was Dakota, I was like you have to be f---- kidding me," she (Melani, a former server). "I never got that from him."
Huck Finn's issued two public statements saying that the French Quarter sports bar fired the waiter.
"The unfortunate actions of this one employee do not mirror the mission of Huck Finn's Cafe's firm non-discrimination policy, and we are extremely apologetic for any inconvenience this may have caused," the statement said.
"We acknowledge that the anger and disappointment being expressed is legitimate and has serious merit. We want everyone to know that we agree."
