Famed drag racer Tom McEwen once said, “It doesn’t matter what they say about you as long as they spell your name right.”

I’m not sure Papa John Schnatter agrees. He doesn’t want bad press. And he doesn’t want his employees playing fast and loose with customers’ names either.

On January 6, Minhee Cho ordered from Papa Johns walked into Papa John’s in NYC. Upon receiving her order, she also got a receipt. Which she photogtraphed. And tweeted.

Minhee Cho never meant to set off a fire storm. She doesn’t want a lot of attention and calls. She just wanted her friends to know how she had been treated. But, the whole thing took off on its own.

Papa John’s apologized:

“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,” the pizza company said. “We are truly sorry for this customer’s experience.”

    sorry – or just sorry that you were exposed as a racist company – hey, papa john’s make fun of any other ethnic groups this week – at least make sure the receipt gets wet or greasy first so we can’t read it

      Hey Jack. It’s not Papa John’s fault since they have no control over the other franchises. Every worker that working at Papa John’s restaurant should make it as a peace place while people enjoying their favorite stuffs. Stop doing humiliating other ethic especially Asian since our race is still not good enough.

    are you mad whitey? do you have a problem with this woman letting the world know that being asian that she too faces racism? if you don’t have anything intelligent then i suggest you post nothing at all. that’s the problem with the internet ppl sit behind computers and smartphones and run off but would never say this type of stuff to a person’s face. the world could use a lot less people like you..but of course you already know that.
