Little Caesars is in hot water because of the recent actions of two employees. Misty Laska and her husband got a pizza to-go from their Ohio store, and when they opened it, they found that the pepperoni was in the shape of a swastika.
Missy tweeted out a photo, writing, “So my husband stopped at #LittleCaesars for a quick bite, husband brings this home! I’m truly disappointed. This is truly saddening and disturbing and not funny at all! These aren’t funny jokes and shouldn’t be made period and on company time?!”
Per People, the two employees involved in the stunt were arrested.
In a statement, Little Caesars said, “We have zero tolerance for racism and discrimination in any form, and these franchise store employees were immediately terminated. We’re deeply disappointed that this happened, as this conduct is completely against our values. We have also reached out to the customer to discuss this personally.”
People adds that the employees made the pizza as a joke. “It was never intended to go out to a customer, but it did.”
