An employee at a Southwest D.C. Safeway has been fired after a Saturday incident in which a cashier used a homosexual slur, a Safeway spokesman said Thursday.

The cashier, who worked at the Safeway at 1100 4th Street SW, used a slur when referring to a gay couple in the store, Safeway spokesman Craig Muckle said Thursday. The couple has filed a complaint with the D.C. Office of Human Rights, reported Metro Weekly.

On Thursday, Muckle said Safeway’s human resources department had conducted an investigation, which resulted in the cashier’s termination.

“We are truly sorry this happened in our store and are taking decisive and urgent action to ensure it does not happen again to any customer in any of the communities we serve,” said Safeway Eastern Division President Steven Neibergall in a statement. “No one should face what these customers faced, and we are humbly sorry it happened to them in our store.”

Took a few clicks to figure out what she said.

She deserved to be fired.

Muckle said the company tried to reach out to the couple, but he did not know whether the attempt was successful.

Clue: they can be found at one of D.C.'s bathhouses.

Working at a Safeway was my first real job as a teenager, and we constantly made fun of and made disparaging remarks about the welfare whores coming through our lines and using food stamps to by all sorts of junk food. We never were reprimanded. But those were saner days.

I agree. No one opposes the perverted gay lifestyle more than I do but insulting customers is never acceptable. She deserved her fate.

More likely in the White House gym.

Human rights commission? Being free from insults is now a human right? I’ll have to remember that in future if anyone calls me fatso, tub-o-lard, gimpy, big guy, etc.

I found it too, and yes, she sounds like a low-life, trashy skank. It was more the "F" word than the "F" word that floored me. Who talks like that to customers, even faggots?

''We just couldn't believe it,'' he says. ''She didn't seem apologetic or anything. We asked her for the store manager and she just ignored us. So we ended up leaving our groceries where they were and we walked [away]....
The couple filed a complaint with the D.C. Office of Human Rights on June 13 regarding the incident.
well...maybe they were flaunting "it" while in the store on Gay Pride Parade...

Sorry Safeway. When a human being chooses to be a pervert, they must accept the consequences of that choice....

Misleading headline. If you are a fudgepacker, you are not “men”.
