- A Smoothie King employee has been fired after calling an Asian customer “Jackie Chan” on his receipt.
- The customer, who is Korean, was visiting a store of the smoothie franchise with his children when the racist incident occurred.
- Shockingly, this isn’t the only racist incident to happen at a Smoothie King store in the past week.
Smoothie King has come under fire after an employee made fun of a customer on its receipt. The customer, who is Korean, shared that the employee in its North Carolina store wrote “Jackie Chan” instead of his name.
Tony Choi took to Facebook to share the incident. He said that he decided to share his receipt because he believed that what the employee did was unnecessary.
“I was just in this Smoothie King with my kids. Instead of asking for my name. Zack H. thought it would be funny to put ‘Jackie Chan’ as my name. Being Korean, I find this very insulting. But the three employees working there at the time couldn’t stop laughing about it.”
He added that although he had experienced racism here and there, this one definitely takes the cake. Choi was so upset with the incident but he tried his best not to feel that way in front of his children because all they wanted was to enjoy their meal as a family.
Shockingly, this isn’t the only racist incident to happen at a Smoothie King store. An African American customer at another location shared that the name listed on his receipt was the “n-word.”
Calvin Caldwell said that he felt disrespected, especially because he’s a paying, loyal customer. He noted that “it was in bad taste and completely inappropriate to use that kind of language.”
Smoothie King was left with no choice but to shut two stores after the incidents. Both employees were fired.
