Two young people denounce discriminatory treatment in a pizzeria in Huesca by identifying their ticket as a “gypsy table”

Two young people aged 25 and 26 living in Huesca filed a claim sheet last Sunday at the Domino’s Pizza pizzeria in Huesca after observing on the ticket that their table had been identified as a “couple of gypsy girls”.

The father of one of them published it on his social networks denouncing the situation and attaching a photograph of the ticket where said identification was seen.

From the Fundación Secretariado Gitano de Huesca they state that this is a discriminatory act because clients are qualified “due to personal circumstances” and that the treatment was correct until the moment they saw the ticket. They also explain that the young women put up the complaint sheet and that it is being disseminated so that “the company takes action on the matter and guarantees that this does not happen again and that it holds awareness workshops with its workers.”

The company, for its part, has issued a statement in which it assures that it “regrets, condemns and rejects the discriminatory treatment received by these two clients and expresses its most sincere apologies to the people affected and to the entire Roma community, before the unacceptable attitude of one of the group’s employees”.

It has also stated that it is a “specific” event and that it is “investigating the facts and after determining the scope of the facts, it will take the appropriate measures to clarify if there is a case of malpractice by any of its employees and to prevent this type of event from happening again in the future.
