Franklin Red Lobster Server Posts Receipt With Racial Slur In Tip Line

Posted: Updated:

FRANKLIN, Tenn. - A receipt from a Franklin Red Lobster has gone viral after someone wrote a racial slur as a "tip."

The 19-year old server, who is black, posted the receipt on her Facebook page this weekend.

In the "tip" line, the customer allegedly wrote the word "none." For the total, the N-word.

Mike Bernstein with Darden Restaurants, the company that owns Red Lobster, sent NewsChannel 5 a statement saying, "We are extremely disturbed by this situation and are currently investigating to determine exactly what happened. This kind of language is completely disgusting and has no place in our restaurant or anywhere else, and we are committed to getting to the bottom of what happened as quickly as possible."
