Outrage ensues after restaurant allegedly wrote 'black woman' on customer receipt

A Maori woman who dined at a restaurant in Auckland, New Zealand claims to have had a rather disturbing experience, reports the New Zealand Herald.

The female patron, who has chosen to stay anonymous, says that when she went to the counter at Cypress Café to check on her drink, her order ticket had the words "black lady" written on it.

She further revealed that not only did her dining companion's receipt contain no such racist note, her friend's food had been delivered to the table, according to the Daily Mail.

A photo of the note shared on social media has triggered an avalanche of criticism for Cypress Café, and Don Choa, its owner, has gone on the defensive.

According to the New Zealand Herald, Choa noted, "You check for yourself, if you are a reporter, check the background of this black woman. I think she is a troublemaker. I think you're better to inspect her, whether she's criminal or something, because she has said a not true thing."
