Florida Papa John's Employees Butt Dial Customer, Leave Voicemail Full of Racial Slurs
Two Papa John's employees in Sanford, Florida have been fired after accidentally leaving a profanity and racial slur-laced voicemail for a customer. The message had apparently been left after a "butt dial," and one of the employes launches into a rendition of "The Marriage of Figaro" tinged with racial slurs.
The customer claims he ordered up a $15.26 pizza and gave the delivery person a 21 percent tip. Just two minutes later the delivery person called the customer again, but the call was answered and sent to voicemail. It seems the call was accidental, and the voicemail picked up the pizza employee telling a co-worker that the customer did not tip which sent the co-worker into a lengthy rant. Oh, yeah, the angry customer decided to upload the message on YouTube.
Be warned, their are more "n-words" dropped in here than a Quentin Tarantino movie.
The pizza chain took the message seriously and fired the two men. An official apology was posted on Facebook by "Papa" John Schnatter himself.
"Their thinking and actions defy both my personal and the company's values, and everything for which this company stands," wrote the company's founder and CEO. "The employees responsible for this absolutely unacceptable behavior were immediately terminated,"
