From 'Chinx' to 'Mc StinkyNigger': Five Racist Restaurant Receipts

Categories: Indigestion
Lawsuit filed in Brooklyn Federal Court
Here we go again. Another restaurant, another racist receipt. This time, it was found at a Hooters in Queens. In the space reserved for the customer's name, an employee typed out the word "Chinx" to identify a Korean American couple. According to, the couple noticed the hostess and another employee standing at the computer giggling and "gawking at them." Now the man, Kisuk Cha, is suing for racial discrimination. 

It's the latest in a string of similar WTF incidents around the country, two right here in OC. Ah, the (not-so-distant) memories. Let's look back at the stupidity, shall we?

African American businessman Mark McHenry filed a lawsuit in OC federal court against Landmark Steakhouse in Corona del Mar after an employee repeatedly listed him on credit card receipts using the racial slurs. The employee, who never confessed, was fired and the lawsuit was settled

"Lady Chinky Eyes" at Papa Johns

Minhee Cho received this receipt at a New York City location. The image went viral when she tweeted, "Hey @PapaJohns just FYI my name isn't 'lady chinky eyes." Papa Johns apologized and fired the employee.

At least of these were from 2010...The most recent one, being the Hooters in...uh NEW YORK, not California, not the O.C. You guys REALLY 'fish' for stories, don'tcha? And to top it off, one receipt has the word nigger blurred, yet on another it is plain as day. Agreed that people like this are scum, but to "Create" a story to make it seem this is happening everywhere in O.C. or abroad is absolutely ridiculous. It isn't an epidemic here, folks. It's a few bad apples, and will not detour me from eating at these establishments by any means.
