Brook Park, Ohio – An Ohio couple arrived home with a surprise after purchasing a Little Caesars’ Hot N’ Ready pizza, a pepperoni pizza decorated in a swastika.
Fox8 is reporting that the couple saved the pizza to use as proof as they make their complaints to corporate. The local franchise owner explained that the pizza was intended as an internal joke among its employees; the employees involved were terminated.
Little Caesars’ corporate responded with the following statement, “We have zero tolerance for racism and discrimination in any form, and these franchise store employees were immediately terminated. We’re deeply disappointed that this happened, as this conduct is completely against our values. We have also reached out to the customer to discuss this personally with him.”
The couple has vowed to never again eat at that Little Caesars or any other Little Caesars again.
