Chop Chop ChinamanA woman accused of vandalizing a Chinese restaurant in Chicago with lipstick graffiti has plead guilty to a criminal misdemeanor charge, reports the Chicago Tribune.

Jeannie Harrell scrawled an angry message on the window of the Chop Chop Chinaman restaurant after being upset by the restaurant’s name.

She’ll will be able to get off with a $200 fine and her criminal record could be cleared if she can stay out of trouble for one month.

“The primary feeling is relief,” said Harrell who is half Japanese American. “I don’t know if I would do anything different, though. It’s not something I feel ashamed about.”

The restaurant was opened by Chinese American Larry Lee who says he wanted a name that would distinguish him from the competition. Lee has since shut down the restaurant due to poor business and says he hopes to find new capital to reopen. Lee denies the name controversy affected his business.
