Little Caesars has confirmed they have fired two of its employees for arranging pepperoni slices in the shape of a swastika on a pizza.
The pizza chain said it is ‘deeply disappointed’ by the actions of its staff members – believed to both be under 18 years old – in the Brook Park, Ohio, store.
Jason Laska picked up the pre-made pepperoni pizza on Saturday night.
It was one of two pies that were pre-cooked and ready to collect by walk-in customers who did not need to order ahead of time.
When he returned home, his wife Misty opened the box to discover the highly-offensive Nazi symbol arranged backwards.
It is understood that the two workers were playing a prank and did not mean for the pizza to be given to a customer.
Mrs Laska shared a picture of the pizza to Twitter and wrote: ‘So my husband stopped at Little Caesars 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.’
A spokesperson for Little Caesar Enterprises 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.’
The Little Caesar’s chain and the Brook Park store owner has reached out to Mr Laska.
