Takeaway giant Domino’s Pizza has been forced to distance itself from comments made about Rotherham people ‘relying on benefits’ on national TV on Thursday 11th June.

Channel 4 documentary Domino’s Pizza: A Slice Of Life shone a light on the workings of the pizza chain in an hour-long film broadcast at 8pm.

But a comment made by one Domino’s manager has had the people of Rotherham up in arms, with people taking to social media to defend the town.He said: “Most people here, they just rely on benefits.

“They have working everything, hands, arms, legs...”

Dominos tweeted: “These were purely personal comments and do not represent the opinions of #Dominos UK.”
