UPDATE: Chick-Fil-A has just issued a statement that confirms the above incident happen, which should shut up the skinheads and conservative who believe racism doesn't exist anymore.
As reported by the always-great Angry Asian Man, which first broke the story:
Please understand and accept our confirmation that the inappropriate, and unthinking behavior of a young team member at one of our restaurants does not support any claim or even suggestion of racism at our restaurant. The individual clearly violated our operating standards; the matter was addressed and discussed immediately with the guests on the spot; and a confirmation was provided that the employee was immediately dismissed for the individual behavior.
Our Chick-fil-A restaurant Operators and their employees try very hard every day to actually go the extra mile in serving ALL of our customers with honor, dignity and respect. The circumstances here are a simply case of immaturity, failed judgment, and human error....it has nothing to do with the service and operational standards of our Chick-fil-A restaurants which are consistently rated at the highest level of service in the foodservice industry."
Will this placate Asian-Americans and all good people who are already sick of the Southern chain's gay-nasty ways? Stay tuned...
ORIGINAL POST, Dec. 10, 1:27 p.m.: The fast-food chicken-sandwich giant Chick Fil-A already has a horrible reputation among LGTB folks for the company's gay-averse ways and atheists for their Godboy mentality, but now there's a new group they just might permanently offend: Asians.
As first reported by Angry Asian Man, UC Irvine student Kelvin Lee posted on his Tumblr page the above receipt, which he said was given to him by a fellow UCI student, an RA who took his residents to a local Chick Fil-A this (which one isn't disclosed, a fact we're trying to find out).
