A worker at The Sardine Can tells Local 5 that a fellow employee was fired after making a racist comment over the bar’s microphone on Friday.
In a post on Facebook, the bar says they are “embarrassed over what was said. We as an establishment and every employee here does not mirror in any way what was said. We promote unity and equality and always will. We apologize for anyone who was offended, as we are sure many were.”
The worker did not specify exactly what was said, but adds that they are conducting cultural training sessions to make sure an incident like this doesn’t happen in the future.
