A South Florida man is suing the owner of a popular restaurant chain after he claims a racial slur was printed twice on his receipt at a Miami Beach eatery.
The man, Frantz Leger, who is black, says he ate at Los Perros on Alton Road on July 2 and when he received his receipt, a racial slur printed on it, not once, but twice — in the order number and table number sections.
According to the complaint, Leger claims the restaurant told him their system must have auto-corrected his name to the racial slur. But, the suit alleges that after he called the restaurant to complain, the waiter resigned.

The lawsuit claims the restaurant discriminated against Leger and violated civil rights statutes.
NBC 6 reached the owner of Los Perros Friday but he has so far declined to comment.
