A woman has criticised Domino's Pizza after her order label made an assumption about her husband’s religion.
Amber Nasim was picking up pizzas from a brand of the pizza chain in San Leon, Texas.
She requested a clean cut on two of the three pizzas she ordered, because her husband Wajahat, was a Muslim and she didn’t want her mum’s pork pizza to mix with his.
However, when the pizzas were handed to her, she found that instead of her name, they had labelled all three of her pizzas ‘Lady with a Muslim husband’.
On her Facebook she called out Domino’s for being ‘racist’:
Are you kidding me. I went to buy pizza tonight at San Leon Domino’s and they handed me my pizza with this written on it rather than my name. Wow plz share. Don’t let this go unseen. This kind of hate and racism has to stop.
A spokesperson issued a statement to indy100 and admitted Nasim “did not receive the service or respect she should expect from our band”.
As a walk-in customer, we should have asked for her name and number to identify her order, which did not happen on this particularly busy night.
A special request she made on behalf of her husband for a clean cut on the pizza, due to religious considerations – which is something we accommodate regularly without issue – should not have been used to identify her or her order.
The team member involved has been reprimanded and feels badly about this incident.
