NEW ORLEANS - The women who received a racial slur on their dinner receipt asked Friday for a public apology.

The women were at Huck Finn's in the New Orleans French Quarter on Thursday afternoon. They sent one of the plates back and said they received the bill with a racial slur typed in.

WWL-TV reports the server claims the message was meant for another table and has not given the women an apology. The group is asking for a public apology for the message and considering legal action

Lyrica Neville says she was sitting with the women before the food came and returned after getting a picture of the receipt from one of the group. She said management wanted her to stay quiet about the incident, but she warned other diners and showed them the receipt.

The restaurant issued a statement Thursday night about the incident, and another statement of apology on Friday. The restaurant said they would like to apologize to the diners in person.
