Women diners called 'fat girls' on bill

Three US women say they're outraged after they were identified as "fat girls" on a restaurant bill.

Christine Duran, Christina Huerta and Isabel Robles could not believe their eyes when they checked their bill at Chilly D's Sports Lounge in Stockton, California.

"I got the bill, and I was like 'Why does the receipt say fat girls?'," Ms Duran told News 10.

Ms Huerta added: "I was laughing at her, and she was like 'I'm serious'. I'm like 'No, it does not say fat girls. Let me see it'."

The women demanded to see a manager, who then offered the ladies 25 % off their bill - a move that provoked further outrage.

"He had like a smirk on his face, like if it was funny, but he was trying not to laugh," Ms Huerta said.

"He was like 'Well, I can do 50 percent,' and we were just like 'Are you serious?'"

Jimmy Seimers, the bar manager at Cameo Club Casino, which owns Chilly D's, later said he was "appalled" by the incident.

"I just want to tell them that we're sincerely sorry for that and that we'll do everything in our power to make sure that this never happens to anyone ever again," he told News 10.
