A McDonaldâ€™s employee in Chicago was terminated after writing some very questionable content on a customerâ€™s coffee cup.
A photo of the coffee cup was sent to ABC 7 News by a viewer. It shows the word â€śchinoâ€ť written on the cup, alongside a drawing of a face.
The word "chino" is a Spanish slang term for an Asian person.Â The customer who ordered the coffee was Korean.
The Mcdonaldâ€™s employee was reportedly fired for writing the racially-insensitive term on the cup.
