Pizza employee fired over racist pizza label

LOUISVILLE, KY (WCMH) – A Papa John’s employee has been fired after allegedly writing a racist name on a customer’s pizza order.

Laura Cheifetz tweeted a picture of the pizza box after an Asian-American friend ordered a pizza.

Cheifetz says that after hearing the woman’s accent, the Papa John’s employee wrote “Ching Ching” on the label.

The company responded on Twitter saying the employee’s actions do not reflect the company’s values and the employee is “no longer a part of the team.”
