PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Taco Bell says an employee who used a racial slur to refer to an Asian-American customer no longer works for them.

The fast food chain issued the statement Tuesday following reports that a cashier in Philadelphia used a slur to describe a student on a printed receipt over the weekend.

First-year University of Pennsylvania Ph.D student In Young Lee told the Daily Pennsylvanian that he thinks it's important to make a conscious effort to fight racism.

Lee also posted an image of the receipt on Facebook along with a post that said he was "infuriated" by the incident.

Taco Bell says the franchisee is retraining staff and that management has apologized directly to Lee.
