Pizza parlor's giveaway sparks heated debate
A pizza parlor is being criticized for asking customers to order a pie in another language.
Dallas-based Pizza Patrón, with 104 outlets across the country, plans to give away 80,000 large pepperoni pizzas on June 5 to anyone who orders in Spanish, according to a report in USA Today.
Some have slammed the deal, as immigration remains a hot button issue in the country.
"It seems to punish people who can't speak Spanish, and I resent that," Peter Thomas, chairman of the Conservative Caucus, says in the report. "In public areas, people should be speaking English, and that includes pizza parlors."
