• Taco Bell cashier out after putting racial slur on receipt

    Updated:
    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Taco Bell says an employee who used a racial slur to refer to an Asian-American customer no longer works for the fast-food chain.

    The company issued the statement Tuesday following reports that a cashier in Philadelphia entered a slur to describe a student on a printed receipt during the weekend.

    First-year University of Pennsylvania Ph.D. student In Young Lee told the Daily Pennsylvanian it's important to make a conscious effort to fight racism.

    Lee also posted an image of the receipt on Facebook and a message saying he was "infuriated" by the incident.

    Taco Bell says the franchisee is retraining staff at the restaurant and management has apologized directly to Lee.
