Calls for boycott of Dunkin' Donuts after 'shocking' sign in store

A doughnuts shop in the US has been forced to remove a sign asking customers to report employees for not speaking English.

The sign, photographed on the counter of a Dunkin’ Donuts store in Baltimore, offered coupons to customers for dobbing staff members in. A picture of it was posted on Twitter by Gillian Morley who labelled the sign “shocking”.

“If you hear any of our staff SHOUTING in a language other than ENGLISH Please call … immediately with the name of the employee to receive a coupon for FREE Coffee and a pastry,” it read.

 The photograph has been shared more than 800 times with many condemning the sign.

“The dumbest sign I’ve ever seen. This country is truly screwed up,” one man tweeted.

Another man tweeted the sign is “not acceptable at all”.

“@dunkindonuts you need to stop this or be boycotted,” another man tweeted.

Others also suggested boycotting the store.

In a statement, Dunkin’ Donuts said a general manager of the shop posted the sign “based on her personal judgment.”  

The franchise owner thought the sign was inappropriate and has since had it removed.
