Racist receipt recieved by Chelsea Shaw

One Texas college student is outraged as a racial slur was found printed on her receipt and now has some serious questions for her university, according to NY Daily Post.

Chelsea Shaw, a student at the University of North Texas posted on Twitter April 17 after she received a receipt from a UNT union worker that called her the N-word on her receipt at the Krispy Krunch Kitchen, an on-campus dining spot.

With a picture of the receipt, Shaw tweeted, “I need answers. ” Within hours, the post went viral getting retweeted over 4,000 times.

The student worker responsible for printing the ticket is African-American and has been fired from their position, according to WFAA News.

“Especially at a school like UNT who has its mission of being very diverse and multicultural, I don’t think she was prepared to see that. And when she saw that, it disgusted her,” explained attorney Justin Moore.

Neal Smatresk, the UNT President released a statement following Shaw’s tweet that said, “Our Mean Green family values respect and prides itself on inclusion.” He continued, “It is completely unacceptable and not who we are as a community. We acted immediately to identify the person responsible and that person has been terminated.”

    This is exactly why I don’t condone the use of this word by anyone, regardless of race, creed or color. What an idiot.

    Did I miss the more… or is it a requirement that public news just inform you without the why so you’ll keep turning in?

    It’s amazing that people continue to do these vile types of things. I’m just happy that leaders of these establishments aren’t making excuses and firing people on the spot.

  4. Hmmmmm… and this happened at the Krispy Krunch Kitchen??? Something about the initials of that establishment just doesn’t sit well…
