Chick-fil-A isn't the only fast food chain issuing racist receipts recently: a Papa John's in New York gave a woman a receipt that referred to her as "lady chinky eyes." Charming! But hey, the company apologized on Facebook:

We were extremely concerned to learn of the receipt issue in New York. This act goes against our company values, and we've confirmed with the franchisee that this matter was addressed immediately and that the employee is being terminated. We are truly sorry for this customer's experience.

Maybe everyone should just start going by order number instead of typing whatever the hell they feel like on receipts? Or just stop using racial slurs, either one.
