Taco Bell Employee Who Used Racial Slur Against UPenn Student is Fired

First-year med student was described as “Steve Chink” on receipt.



A Taco Bell worker who described a first-year University of Pennsylvania student as “Steve Chink” on a receipt has been terminated for the action.

The Daily Pennsylvanian got confirmation of the move from a Taco Bell via email. They reported:

“We do not tolerate this behavior. This employee no longer works for the brand, and the franchisee is retraining its staff to ensure this incident will not happen again. Management has reached out and apologized.

In Young Lee went to a Taco Bell with friends around 1.30am Saturday and when asked for his name by the employee who took his order, he replied with “Steve” to make things easier. When he looked at his receipt, he noticed that the word “Chink” had been added after Steve.

Lee, who says he feels bad that the employee lost his job, told the DP that “At least for Asian-Americans, we don’t speak up that much, and I think that’s one of the reasons why stuff like this happens all the time, and it’s usually ignored. I just want Asians in general to become more vocal about incidents like this.”

Lee wrote in detail about the incident on Facebook.

Taco Bell [Revision: I honestly did not expect this incident to draw much attention so did not include the entire story…
