Dunkin' Donuts sign asks customers to report employees who don't speak English

A Baltimore Dunkin Donuts has now removed a controversial sign asking customers to call a number when they hear employees shouting in a language other than English

The register at Dunkin' Donuts at 1020 W. 41st Street where the sign was removed.

Customers first noticed the sign Monday morning, local outlet WBAL-TV 11 reported.

The picture caused outrage on social media and was eventually taken down.

A man who answered the phone number on the sign told a WBAL staffer he was the former general manager at that location.

The photo showed a small red sign sitting in front of a register asking customers to report any employees they witnessed shouting in a language other than English to management.

And regular customers told WBAL that they were appalled by the sign as well.

A controversial sign posted at a Dunkin Donuts in Baltimore asks customers to report employees shouting in languages other than English.

"The franchise owner has informed us that the sign was posted by their general manager based on her own personal judgment to ensure those standards are being met". The franchise owner, Cronin added, "determined her approach was inappropriate and confirmed the sign has been removed".

Angry tweeters called out Dunkin' Donuts and demanded that the sign be addressed as soon as possible.

"Dunkin' Donuts and our franchisees share the goal of creating a welcoming and hospitable environment for all guests", the company explained in its statement. He said it was an old sign.
