Smoothie King has closed two of it’s stores in North Carolina after employees at both locations were accused of using racist language to describe their customers.

The first incident occurred at the Mt. Holly-Huntersville Road location in Charlotte, NC. In a since-deleted tweet, the niece of the first customer tweeted the following:

My aunt just wanted a smoothie! This is ridiculous & sick, Caleb needs to be fired! @SmoothieKing @SmoothieKing pic.twitter.com/sRQhSciP9x— KashKeey 🤑💔 (@miss_kyerah) June 2, 2019

Smoothie King took to their twitter to let everyone know that the employee in question had been terminated.

They went on to respond to the first party:

The story would normally end there- However, just hours later, at an additional Charlotte location of the Smoothie King franchise, another customer had a similar experience when, after visiting the location with his children, a Korean-American man named Tony Choi, wrote on facebook: “Today I left this store furious on the inside, trying to not let my young kids know what just happened, But the 3 employees working there at the time couldn’t stop laughing about it.”

The employees had written “Jackie Chan” on the receipt. (Pic Below)

In response to these horrible incidents, Smoothie King went on the offensive, fired the employees and shuttered the stores so they could proactively focus on retraining the staff. In a tweet, the franchiser responded:

The Smoothie King Racism claim has been dealt with swiftly, and we hope all parties can come to a conclusion, amicably and that retraining will help.
