Sonic employee leaves racial slur on receipt

A Fort Worth man is saying enough is enough after getting a receipt from Sonic with a racial slur printed on it.

Tyrone Moseley reached out to WFAA on Facebook with pictures of the receipts he received during his visit the fast food chain Friday.

Moseley has copies of two receipts he was given; one says the customer's name is "Mexican" and the other reads the n-word.


WFAA reached out to Sonic for comment and the chain told us the responsible employee has been fired.

You can read their statement in full below:

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to respond to your inquiry regarding an occurrence at the SONIC drive-in located at 6217 Camp Bowie Blvd. in Ft. Worth, Texas.

We understand that a carhop wrote an offensive word on one customer’s receipt and a different offensive word on another customer’s receipt. The franchisees who own and operate this drive-in consider such behavior to be completely unacceptable. They have already investigated the matter and report that the carhop is no longer employed by the drive-in.


The drive-in’s management team will provide training to employees to ensure they understand this type of behavior is unacceptable at all times, under any circumstances.
