Diners called ‘fat girls’ on check: Chilly D’s Restaurant Apologized (Video)By Alex Jusi Madlangbayan on Dec 10, 2012 in Business, Food, Lifestyle •
A group of diners were called ‘fat girls‘ on their check at a California restaurant, according to an ABC News 10 report on Saturday, December 8, 2012.
Christine Duran, Christina Huerta and Isabel Robles received the insulting remarks during their visit at the Chilly D’s Sports Lounge of the Cameo Club Cas&no in Stockton, California.
The three diners were reportedly surprised and felt insulted when they got their check and saw “fat girls” written on their bill.
In an interview with News 10, Duran said that she “got the bill, and I was like, why does the receipt say, ‘fat girls?'”
A restaurant employee named “Jeff,” whose name appears on the receipt, may have been the one who encoded “fat girls” into the system as part of tracking their bill.
The three girls talked to the restaurant manager about the “fat girls” check.

The manager apologized and initially offered 25 percent discount and later 50 percent, but the three diners rejected the offers.
Chilly D’s Restaurant posted a public apology on Saturday at their Facebook page.
Below is the complete Chilly D’s apology.
This is a message for the girls that had a very bad experience at our bar a few nights ago and for anyone that was negatively affected by this. What happened to those girls at our bar was unacceptable and is in no way a reflection of how we run our business. We are just as appalled at what happened to these ladies and this employee has been immediately terminated. We are a family run business and strive to make our customers feel welcomed and appreciated. My family is embarrassed and we are holding a full staff meeting to re-train all of our remaining employees so that this never happens again. In no manner do we want to be associated with this type of behavior and it is devastating that one persons behavior has reflected on our family’s establishment. My hope is, that we can rectify the situation by taking immediate action with this employee and by extending our most sincere apologies to these ladies and anyone that has been affected by this situation. I completely understand why they were hurt by what was written on their receipt and that type of treatment isn’t tolerated. Also there will be no tolerance in the future, guaranteed. Everyone is welcome in our establishment, my family built this business so that the community of Stockton would have a safe and fun place to hang out and come together. My hope is to heal our newly tarnished reputation so that everyone feels safe and welcome again. And if these ladies would like to meet with my family and I, so that we can personally apologize, we would really like to do that, because we do not want anyone to have an experience like this.
