An Arby’s employee in Lafayette, Indiana is out of a job after he decided to call a gay couple a slur on their receipt.

John Burns said he and his partner Craig Gray were “shocked” to find the word “fag” written on their Arby’s receipt after they got lunch this past Sunday.

“The kid seemed like he was new on the job, like he was really nice,” Burns said.

The men posted a photo of the receipt to Facebook to draw attention to how they were treated and the post got attention on the social media platform.

“You know, there are some people out there that don’t get people out there are like this and that’s wrong,” Burns said.

An Arby’s spokesperson told WLFI that the employee who wrote the slur on the receipt was fired “within minutes” of management finding out what happened. They said that it’s “not a part of the Arby’s brand.”

They said that they already have diversity training throughout the company and that they have made “attempts” to reach out to the couple.

But Burns said that it might be a sign of a larger problem.

“This young man has learned this behavior somewhere,” he said.
