Last month, liberal outlets like The Huffington Post and Raw Story eagerly pounced on the story, holding up Virginia waitress Kelly Carter as the perfect example of Racist White America. Carter, a black woman, claimed she received no tip and a racist note on a receipt from a customer she waited on, which read, "Great service, don’t tip black people." The waitress received attention from national publications, the NAACP and the VA attorney general and raked in thousands of dollars in donations.
Turns out, the whole thing could be yet another "hate" hoax. The lawyer of the "racist" customer is accusing Carter of fabricating the note, and closer examination of the receipt seems to back up his claim.
According to the customer's lawyer, Daniel Hebda, the customer actually tipped the waitress one penny for her poor service, not her race, leaving a note on the receipt that simply read, "terrible service." Hebda says someone forged his client's name and wrote the racist message on a new copy of the receipt.
“Our client did not nor would he ever write anything about refusing to tip African Americans because of their race,” stated Hebda.
