Some people will find anything to be offended about.
Including a take-out pizza as a Texas Domino’s pizza store found out as it issued an apology to a customer after an employee labeled an order for the “lady with Muslim husband.”
“I was enraged,” Amber Nasim told KHOU, referring to her to-go order from a Domino’s store last week.
Nasim ordered three pizzas and reportedly requested a clean cut on two of them so pork product from a ham pizza would not come in contact with another. Nasim’s husband, Wajahat, has religious dietary restrictions due to his Mulsim faith.
Domino’s identified the orders with stickers that read: “lady with Muslim husband,” which was a fact, considering she explained the request to the pizza store.
“When they handed me the pizza, they turned it around backwards to hide what they had done,” Nasim told KHOU.
“I saw them trying to hide it,” she said. “I’m not going to lie, I flipped out. I started cussing and yelling and flicking them off.”
But Nasim wasn’t done. She took her frustrations to Facebook where she posted about the “hate and racism” Domino’s displayed in the way they labeled her pizza order.
“This kind of hate and racism has to stop,” she wrote, while missing the fact that Islam is not actually a race.
1) Being Muslim or being married to a Muslim are not a “race.” 2) If you wanted that detail ignored, you shouldn’t have shared it with the stranger making your pizza.

An assistant manager apparently apologized after the incident, according to KHOU.
“I just want people to realize this is not OK,” Nasim told the news outlet.
A corporate Domino’s spokesperson said Nasim “did not receive the service or respect she should expect from our brand,” in a statement to KHOU.
“As a walk-in customer, we should have asked for her name and number to identify her order, which did not happen on this particular busy night,” the statement read. “A special request she made on behalf of her husband for a clean cut on the pizza, due to religious considerations – which is something we accommodate regularly without issue – should not have been used to identify her or her order.”
The company also noted that the employee responsible “has been reprimanded and feels badly about this incident.”
“Islam is about forgiveness and peace, which people don’t understand,” Nasim declared, adding that – though she can forgive the incident – she will not be ordering from Domino’s again.
The irony of Nasim’s own words may have escaped her, but social media users were not so forgiving.
So after informing Dominos that she wanted to avoid some ingredients “because her husband is muslim” she is now complaining because they recorded *her request* on the box?
tbh the box also explains where she learned to make problems and then pretend to be the victim

What is offensive here?? The most offensive thing about this is her reaction to some minimum wage pizza place workers trying not to contaminate her husband’s pizza

Did they use a slur or otherwise use unflattering terms or slang? No, what they put on the box was 100% accurate because you are a lady with a muslim husband, so calm the hell down. https://t.co/1W1Gw5yy7r

This lady needs to find a hobby or go find something productive to do. Is she not a lady with a Muslim husband? My wife is Hispanic and I am indeed a man with a Hispanic wife. Fact.

First off she had identified herself as having a Muslim husband. And ask them to be clean-cut meaning no ham products can touch the ingredients on the pizza because she has a Muslim husband. They ID the pizzas that way. I don’t see a problem here. Why is this even news?
