PHILADELPHIA, Penn. (PIX11) — A Philadelphia restaurant owner blasted Eagles running back LeSean McCoy on Facebook, saying the footballer left a 20 cent tip and was rude to his employee.
The owner, who goes by Tommy, posted a photo of McCoy’s alleged 20 cent tip on a $61.56 bill on PYT’s Facebook page Monday.
“That is a .03% tip,” the post read. “New record!”
Although many people applauded the owner for shaming McCoy’s alleged measly tip, others blasted the restaurant.
“How to kill a franchise in one dumb move,” one person commented.
PYT’s owner posted a lengthy message, standing by his actions.
“For starters, I take total and complete responsibility for sharing this receipt. It was not our server’s decision, it was mine. I am to blame,” the message said in part. “And while I’d like to apologize to Mr McCoy, I cannot in good conscience do so. I stand by my actions one hundred percent.”
Tommy went on to say:
“He and his group, from the moment they sat down, were verbally abusive to our staff in the most insulting ways. The derogatory statements about women and their sheer contempt for the staff serving them wasn’t the end, however. After Mr McCoy and his group left I looked over and saw their server, my friend, with his head bowed down and with a very confused look on his face. I took the receipt out of his hand and I couldn’t believe that anyone could be so callous. Mr McCoy had left a .03% tip for our staff. Our staff that was beyond excited to see him walk into our burger joint and was excited to serve him. That’s twenty cents on a tab of over $60. Twenty cents that our server has to split with the food runner and the bartender. Two dimes from an insulting multimillionaire.”
“Hate mail should be directed to email@example.com. I will respond to you right after I catch up on this mornings hate mail,” the owner said in closing of his statement.
McCoy, who signed a fiver-year $45 million contract extension with the Eagles 2 years ago, has yet to comment on the situation.
