Letter regarding offensive words

So pleased you bought this subject into the public arena.
I would have been horrified if I had been in the supermarket with my grandchildren.  It would also have offended me.  I am sure most of the shoppers that day were offended too.
Did you know that it is an offence under the Summary Offences Act to use or display offensive language in a public place?  The fine is not insignificant either.
I would also have asked to see the manager and informed him of his customer’s behaviour.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
