Domino’s has apologised for saying it would not serve same sex weddings, after a customer tweeted about the company’s menu.
The tweet by user @snowtakesaid prompted Domino`s to remove the tweet and tweet back that it would be “unacceptable” if the company were to offer same-gender weddings.
In a tweet to The Daily Telegraph, Domino�s confirmed it had removed the tweet, and apologised for any offence it may have caused.
“Domino�’s takes full responsibility for the tweet,” the company said.
“We have made the decision to remove our menu item for the wedding event and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”
Domino`S menu items that include same-kind wedding cakes include pizza, pizza, meat pies and lasagna.
In its statement, Domano�s said it was not a place that supports or condones discrimination.
“While we understand the anger that was felt by our customer, we must not forget that it is a private event and this is the right thing to do for everyone,” it said.
The hashtag #NoWeddingsAtDomino’s restaurant chain had previously apologised for a tweet which asked customers to boycott Dominoes if they wanted a wedding cake.
A video on YouTube has since been shared more than 10,000 times.
A spokeswoman for Domino Restaurants Australia said the company had taken down the tweet.
“We have removed the Tweet and have issued an apology for any misunderstanding this may have created,” she said.
“As we continue to improve our customer service and support, we hope to be more inclusive of our guests.”
A Domino Pizza spokesman said the tweet was offensive and unacceptable.
“This is an extremely distressing time for all of us at Domino, and we sincerely apologise for the hurt this may be causing our customers,” the spokesman said.
