Mother and Daughter Can't Believe What They Found in Wendy's Kids Meal

Recently, a Colorado mother took her daughter to Wendy's, only to be stunned by what they found scribbled on a playing card inside. They included the n-word and other derogatory sayings on the kids' meal toy.

According to KDVR-TV, two Wendy's employees were fired after the note. The mother, Maggie Oswoski, said, “I had to explain to my child what the n-word means and she’s never heard that term before."

The reason for the writings is unknown. Wendy’s spokeswoman Candis Goins said “Our core values as a brand center around treating people with respect, and we have taken this situation very seriously. As soon as we learned what had occurred, we investigated and took swift action. The two employees who were involved are no longer employed by Wendy’s. We also have reached out and have formally apologized to the customer.”

Goins added that this incident is “not something that is the culture of Wendy’s.” Oswoski said she would still like a personal apology, and wants to see the corporation instill better anti-racism training.

She stated “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." There were around 12 people who protested outside of Wendy's on Tuesday.
