ORLAND PARK, Ill. -- A former Culver's employee in the suburbs claims she was the target of a racist message.

22-year-old Diamond Williams says she discovered an image of a KKK cross burning back on July 16th.

A manager-in-training is accused of leaving the image for her.

Culver's responded with a statement saying:

Culver Franchising System Inc. and our franchisee in Orland Park, Ill., find the recent offensive act of a Culver’s team member reprehensible. Following an initial investigation, the team member has been terminated. The restaurant’s investigation will continue.

Treating everyone with fairness and respect has been at the heart of how Culver’s operates. We proudly welcome people from all walks of life into our restaurants, our guests and the team members and restaurant leadership who serve them. We do not tolerate acts of discrimination.
