From CBS Philadelphia:
A Philadelphia man is suing the Hooters restaurant chain after he says an employee used a racial slur on a receipt to identify him and his girlfriend.
The incident happened in early July at the Hooters restaurant in Queens, New York.
Kisuk Cha says he and his girlfriend went to the restaurant in Queens and ordered wings and buffalo shrimp to go.
However, Cha says when he was handed the receipt, he saw something on there that completely shocked him. Cha says in the space that is normally reserved for the customer’s name, the cashier had typed “Chinx.” Cha and his girlfriend are Korean-Americans.
To be fair though, that was still the nicest thing that happened to him in Queens all day.
At first Cha was sickened by the incident and didn’t know what to do, but eventually decided to contact a lawyer. Although Hooters could not be reached for comment, legal experts agree that this lawsuit is shaping up to be the sexiest racial discrimination case since Ramirez v. White Hot White Only, which of course involved an Aryan phone sex hotline refusing service to Hector Ramirez, a Guatemalan immigrant.
This Hooters case actually explains a lot, specifically about my own Hooters receipts and how I’ve been identified on them. I used to think they were just odd coincidences, but now I don’t know. Take a look for yourselves.
Those bitches. Hey Cha, let’s class action this mofo.
