An employee at an Arby's restaurant in Lafayette, Indiana, was fired after writing a homophobic slur on the receipt of a gay couple, NBC News reported.
Craig Gray and John Burns were dining at the restaurant Sunday afternoon when they received their order receipt with the typed slur ("f*g"), which came as a "shock," Burns said.
"We went to the counter and ordered," Burns said. "The cashier that helped us, the young man that's been mentioned, seemed really new and a little awkward, but very nice." However, as the couple waited for their order to be prepared, Gray noticed that on their receipt, there was a homophobic slur in place of his name.
Burns said the cashier blamed the slur on a "computer glitch." Burns said he asked to see the manager, who refunded the couple's order and fired the cashier on the spot.
