well princess think what you like and i will think what i like ... can you respect that?
funny as hell this imbecile 16 year old wimp could not would not man up and refuse to wear the name tag in question. "Made him wear it' is BS ...what am i missing here was this kid not only gay but mentally challenged also? feel sorry for him boo hoo., so what if a customer reported the gaytard name tag the kid put the label on the badge stuck it out there for everyone to see because he knew his work performance suck and he was bordering getting fired "I will sue that's how i will succeed " kitchen helper to much like work oh btw you do not have a rational argument.
I read this on Change.org .----
16 year old Tyler Brandt’s supervisor created and required him to wear a name tag labeled “GAYTARD” while he worked at a Taco John’s restaurant in Yankton, South Dakota. Tyler was intentionally humiliated in front of customers and coworkers to the point that he felt he had no option but to quit his job.__
If even a small part of it is true & there are witnesses (customers made the complaint, so there are some.) then Tyler should file a case. I know he wants an apology, but losing money may change things for other employees. I was fired due to having Lupis & I got a few thousand after I went through two years of meetings. I paid my attorney nothing.as it was a discrimination case. Do not worry about the apology. These aren't the type of people you want one from. I hope someone organizes a march or picketing outside the restaurant!!!! Does anyone know how to contact that manager? Phone number, text, mail or E-mail? Let's tell him how when feel about this:)

Exactly. To be fair, all employees should wear a name tag that says "Harriet" on it.

Since nearly every working person in the USA now owns and carries at least one smartphone, when something like this happens, one should simply surreptitiously hit "record" on their phone and record the audio, and video of the alleged abuse if possible.
