Oh, Hell No! White Customers Don’t Tip Waitress Because She’s Black
A Virginia waitress claims she was the recipient of a disgusting message left by White patrons over the weekend. The waitress, identified only as Kelly, says when it came time for a couple to pay their check and leave a tip, they left this message on the receipt instead: “Great service. Don’t tip Black people.”
The unfortunate incident went down at Anita’s, a New Mexican-style restaurant located in Northern Virginia. “It’s just appalling, disheartening, outrageous – all of the above,” said owner Tom Tellez in an interview with the local Fox affiliate.
Hatred will not be tolerated and we will not keep quiet. This has been confirmed and did happen per Mgr @ Anita’s in Ashburn. pic.twitter.com/UKaLCaKf9h

The owner says that this is the first time he’s ever experienced something as racist as this at his family-run restaurant. Still, despite the disgusting behavior of these customers, Tellez says Kelly tells him she would serve the customers again.
Hats off to her. She’s a bigger person than many other folks out there.
