A young, black employee who endured racism at Red Lobster has been suspended by the company. According to reports by Progressive Populist Toni Jenkins, 19 was suspend after posting a receipt she received on Facebook.

While serving a white couple at the Nashville, Tenn., restaurant, Jenkins said the couple was rude to her and would not speak when she attempted to take their orders. They eventually told Jenkins to put all of their food in a to-go box. When Jenkins returned to get the receipt, she found the words, “none n—-r” scribbled in the totals section.

Jenkins showed her manager, who did nothing about the matter. She later posted a picture of the receipt with a note that read, “This is what I got as a tip last night … so happy to live in the proud southern states…God Bless America, land of the free and home of the low class racists of Tennessee.”

Jenkins’ picture was shared thousands of times. However, the restaurant suspended her with pay after it was discovered that she posted the receipt.

Red Lobster is currently investigating the incident.

    that is just plain wrong on so many levels, and she should not have been suspended, by doing so is allowing the azzholes to be bigger azzholes, red lobster should have let her do as she did and let it be known they gave her the tip the ignorant customers did not. this is why customers act like assholes, noooo customers r not always right! : ( good for u girl maybe someone whom knows that name on that receipt will se this jerk for what they really r!
