Apple Store Patron Aghast Over Gay Slur Written on Receipt

by at .  Updated at . Comments

An Apple store patron named Adam Catanzarite claims he is the victim of discrimination at the hands of a bigoted employee in Portland, Oregon.

And he has the paper trail to prove it.

Catanzarite posted a message on Facebook that includes a photo of the receipt he was given after a visit to an Apple location - and it lists his email address as f@g.com." He writes:

"Being queer and having worked with queer youth, I know first-hand that this is an example of the type of homophobic beliefs and actions that lead young people to harm themselves."

“This type of action is NOT OKAY, especially from a company that prides itself on being LGBTQ inclusive and welcoming."

Amazingly/sadly, this isn't the first story of its kind. A group of transgender women were called "gay bitches" in a D.C. bar last year, while a waitress was once called the N Word on a receipt.

Check out Catanzarite's unfortunate bill below and then flip through other examples of receipts that tell a story far beyond how much money was paid...
