Gay Apple customer handed receipt with ‘email@example.com’ on it
A gay Apple customer claims he was given a receipt with a homophobic slur on it.
Adam Catanzarite bought a pair of earphones at a store in Portland, US, but when he checked his receipt he noticed ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’.
The alleged slur appeared where the customer’s email address usually goes.
He posted a photo of the receipt on his Facebook page and wrote: ‘So here’s a thing. I got called a f@g by an #Apple employee here in #Portland.
‘The store manager did not do what he said he would to rectify the situation, so now I feel it is important to share the story.
‘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.’
He continued: ‘My friends, I please ask that you like this status or share it with your networks to let them know that #homophobia does not have a place in PDX (or anywhere) and that you reconsider where you spend your money. Perhaps the #Applestore is not so deserving.
That’s crazy Cause I live in Portland. Time to go to that apple store looooooool.
