Two employees were fired from a Denver Wendy’s after they wrote a racist note on a Black child’s kids meal toy.
The note featured the “N” word as well as other derogatory sayings. Manige Osowski brought her family to the Wendy’s at 62nd Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard on Thursday. Osowski couldn’t believe it when her daughter opened the toy to see the note.
According to CNN, Osowski said, “I had to explain to my child what the ‘N’ word means and she’s never heard that term before,”
It’s unclear why the employees wrote the note, but Wendy’s said it acted quickly and terminated their employment.
On Tuesday, about a dozen people protested outside the Wendy’s to voice their frustration. Wendy’s apologized to the family, but the family said it won’t accept it until their children are formally apologized to.
“While I do understand that two individuals were responsible for this, there’s a systemic problem that this isn’t addressed to the people it hurt,” Oswoski said.
