A sign posted at a Dunkin' Donuts shop in Baltimore offering customers free coffee and food if they report workers shouting in foreign languages to management has been removed.
NBC affiliate WBAL-TV reports the general manager posted the sign in the store on West 41st Street.
Gillian Morley, a news producer at the station, spotted the sign Monday morning and tweeted a photo of it.
It read in part: "If you hear any of our staff SHOUTING in a language other than ENGLISH Please call ... immediately with the name of the employee to receive a coupon for FREE Coffee and a pastry."
The photo created a stir on social media and the sign was removed later in the day.
In a statement, Dunkin' Donuts corporate said a general manager of the shop posted the sign "based on her personal judgment." The franchise owner thought the sign was inappropriate and had it removed.
