- Cassandra Peoples ordered a smoothie from a cafe
- They asked for her name to write on the receipt

A cafe customer in Florida, US was left upset after an employee labeled her "black chick" on her receipt.
Cassandra Peoples had just bought a smoothie from a local franchise of the Tropical Smoothie Cafe. Employees then asked for her name so they could identify her.
However, she was shocked to find "black chick" written on the receipt instead of her name.
In an interview, Cassandra said: "I've never experienced anything disrespectful like that before. I wouldn't want to say its racist, its just disrespectful."
She added that she only wanted an explanation from the cafe.
The cafe later apologized in a statement: "This type of conduct clearly does not reflect the values of our brand or our commitment to creating a welcoming environment at each and every location."
The statement added: "We have been in contact with the franchisee and understand that he acted quickly by terminating the employee."
