A popular restaurant in London has been called “disgraceful” after a black customer was subjected to racism while dining with a bunch of white friends.

Drake and Morgan, the restaurant group that owns Happenstance bar in London, is apologizing profusely after a staff member subjected one black customer to racism.

The woman, who was dining with a bunch of white friends on Easter Sunday, was outraged when she received a bill with “no ice n*****” printed on it. The group of friends reported the incident to the staff on the spot, but got “we don’t know how it got there” as a reply.

 

 

However, a member of the staff has been suspended pending further investigation.

A friend of the victim posted a photo of the bill on Twitter to bring the incident to light. The original image has been shared over 3,000 times with people commenting on its absurdity.

“The principles of non-discrimination and equality of opportunity also apply to the way in which staff treat customers as well as colleagues. We cannot apologize enough and are saddened that one person's irresponsible behavior could risk damaging our reputation,” said a spokesperson of Drake and Morgan. The restaurant has also tweeted out an apology.

 

 

Hopefully the person responsible for the act will found out and fired, so that a precedent for the future is set. There is simply no room in today's society for minorities or ethnic groups to be targeted on the basis or skin color, religious beliefs or anything else.
