Bartender Under Fire For Putting Offensive Note On Receipt (Photos)

A Pennsylvania man went out to a local sports bar for some take-out wings. Being a regular at the tavern, he never expected to find a racial slur on his receipt.

Marquis Moore, 29, brought the food back from Zembie's to his Harrisburg home when he looked at the receipt and lost his appetite. In the name field on the electronic receipt, one of the servers wrong, 'N-gga.'

"It makes me feel like I'm just low," Moore said. "...What would possess you to put something like that on a piece of paper? You don't even know who I am."

Moore didn't know which staff member put the word on the receipt, but he was going to get to the bottom of it. He spoke to the owner, Angelo Karagiannis, to get answers.

Bartender Megan Bonsall was the person who put the offensive word in the name field. Karagiannis said it was a misunderstanding. A friend of Moore's was and showed Bonsall Moore's Facebook page. Moore calls himself a 'sexy n-gga' in his picture, and she thought it was funny. She meant it as a joke.

"We have a Redskins fan club and every week there are 12-15 black guys who come in to watch the games. We are not racist at all and serve anyone," said Karagiannis.

Moore thinks Bonsall searched his Facebook page after the incident was reported and tried to use it as an excuse for her actions. "Even if that is the case, why didn't she put 'sexy [expletive]' on the check?" Moore asked.

"Racism is no longer behind closed doors," he warns.
