(NBC) - A St. Louis man will take action after finding what he calls a racist remark on his receipt from Pizza Hut.
"At first I thought maybe this was some type of promotional," said Karl Mayberry. "This had to be the name of a pizza that I didn't know."
But it wasn't. The words Mayberry saw on his Pizza Hut order ticket did not describe the pizza at all. He believes they described him. Where his name should have been, there were two adjectives instead.
"It was 'big' and 'black,'" he said.
Mayberry could not believe it. The pizza had come from the store on Lindell. He compared receipts with another Pizza Hut just to be sure.
"Lo and behold, the same spot where the name would go is where the racist remark went from the Pizza Hut on Lindell," he said.
Mayberry was hurt and offended. After receiving his complaints, Pizza Hut officials responded. They gave Mayberry two $50 gift cards and a letter of apology. In it, they said they were both disappointed and embarrassed by the situation.
