A student and his girlfriend are outraged after being called a ‘black couple’ on their receipt by staff at a London pub.
Johnson Abraham, 24, and Roxanne Duhur, 21, claim they were the only couple dining when they received their bill at the Slug And Lettuce in Islington Green.
Mr Abraham, a mechanical engineering student from Dalston, was at the pub last month with Ms Duhur to celebrate her new job as an estate agent.
They ordered at the bar, without a table number, before going upstairs to find a seat. When they went to pay for the meal the comment ‘upstairs blk couple’ was printed on the bill.
Mr Abraham said: “I was outraged. They wouldn’t have written ‘white couple’. I do class it as racism. It spoiled what should have been a celebration.”
Eh… There are plenty of incidences of racism still out there in the world today. This doesn’t seem to be one of them.
