FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A fast-food worker in Fort Worth has been fired after including a racial slur on a bill to identify a customer who stopped for lunch Friday.

Tyrone Moseley told KDFW-TV (https://bit.ly/2dObYvQ ) that he and a co-worker were surprised when they received their receipts after eating at a Sonic restaurant.

The receipts show Moseley was identified using a racial slur for a black person and his co-worker referred to as “Mexican.”

Sonic later issued a statement saying the owners of the Fort Worth franchise found the actions of the fast-food worker “completely unacceptable” and fired the person.

The statement said employees will be trained to ensure the behavior is not repeated.
