SINGAPORE–Pizza Hut Singapore has launched an investigation and apologized to a customer described as a ��Pink Fat Lady�� in a handwritten note on her receipt after she ordered pizza for take away. Aili Si on Sunday posted on Pizza Hut Singapore’s Facebook page a photo of the receipt, saying she felt insulted at the description. ��I don’t think it is nice for your staff to describe me as such on my receipt,�� she wrote in a comment accompanying the photo which showed the receipt for her take out order. The receipt had a handwritten note at the bottom that read ��Pink Fat Lady,�� apparently to identify her as she waited for her order. ��As a customer I definitely hope to be treated with basic respect deserved by any others. I hope to receive an apology from the staff and Pizza Hut,�� she wrote on Facebook.

��Just feel insulted. What’s wrong being plus size? I’m a customer n I pay for my pizza! Not that I’m get it for free!�� she added in her post.

Pizza Hut later issued a statement apologizing ��unreservedly�� and confirmed it had launched an investigation into the matter. ��This incident goes against our corporate values and we do not condone behavior or actions that offend people,�� said the statement signed by the management and staff. One Facebook reader said the staff could just have described her as ��lady in pink�� without emphasizing her size, while another suggested she should be given ��a lifetime of free pizzas.��
