  • Insults are on Wendy's menu as N.C. customer gets fat-shamed

When Jimmy Shue placed his order at a Wendy's in North Carolina he was horrified to find that the employee had written his name down as "chubby" instead of "Jimmy".

Jimmy Shue entered a Wendy's in Gastonia, N.C., on October 3, when an employee taking his order asked for his name.

He says the "Chubby" insult came out of the blue when he stopped at the Gastonia restaurant around 8pm on October 4.

"The girl asked me my name at the register, so I gave her my name clear as day, 'Jimmy, '" Shue told the news outlet. I get my receipt and she thought it was amusing to put chubby as my name ...

At first he was upset but didn't want to raise hell about the ticket.

When another worker called out the name when his order was ready, "everybody started laughing in the restaurant, and I got really embarrassed", Shue told WFMY.

Wendy's has not commented on the matter and, when Shue reached out to them, he said he was told the store is franchised and locally owned. According to WFMY, Shue was told the situation had been "dealt with", but was not given any specifics as to what that meant.

"We work very hard to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for our employees and customers", the statement said, according to WBTV.

"I think they should make it right", they added.
