Jason Laska stopped at the Little Caesars store on Smith and Snow Roads in Brook Park.
“She turned around and asked me” Baby, did you order this, did they do it for you? “And I turned around and looked at him and I could see the shock on his face and then my jaw just dropped,” said Laska.
He ordered a pepperoni pizza. When he got home and opened the box, he found the pepperoni on the pizza in the shape of a swastika.
“I was like they didn’t cut our pizza, but I backed away for a second and saw the symbol. And I looked at it and thought, “Hang on, should you order fresh pizza or something?” Said Misty Laska.
The Laskas did not eat the pizza, but rather kept it for evidence. They immediately called the store, which had closed a few minutes earlier. On Sunday, they received a call from the local owner and the Little Caesars head office.
“I told him it was meant to be an internal joke that they were playing on each other and on the other employee, and that pizza was never meant to come out. He also confirmed that he let the employees go that morning, “said Jason.
The Laskas visit this Little Caesars often because it is so close to home, but after the incident on Saturday, they will never go back there or anywhere else in Little Caesar.
“It’s unacceptable and in our minds, we’re just never going to go back there,” said Jason.
“We are the type of people who support diversity in our country, we embrace it and love it. We just want to see this hatred stop, ”said Misty.
A spokeswoman for Little Caesars released the following statement on Sunday evening:
“We have zero tolerance for racism and discrimination in all its forms, and these employees of the franchise stores were immediately dismissed. We are deeply disappointed that this has happened because this behavior is totally contrary to our values. We also contacted the client to discuss it personally with him. ”
