A customer who allegedly wrote "don't tip Black People" on a restaurant bill is fake news, a lawyer who is representing the man who supposedly left the racially charged note says.
In a story that generated national headlines and viral traction on social media in January after the receipt went up on Facebook, a Virginia waitress claimed that the "don't tip Black people" handwritten message preceded by "great service" appeared on a check for a table she served instead of a tip.
The racist note reportedly was left for waitress Kelly Carter, who works at Anita's New Mexico Style Cafe, in Ashburn, Virginia, located in suburban Washington, D.C.
Carter said she was shocked when she read what was written on the receipt for $30.52, the Inquisitr previously chronicled.
ABC News Washington, D.C., affiliate, WJLA, reported that Carter described the patrons who left the racially-charged message as a white couple in their 20s who came in for breakfast. At no time did they appear dissatisfied with their meal, she recalled. They did pay the bill itself in full, but left no tip.
