NBC LA: Racist “Tip” Left for Waitress at Thai Restaurant

posted by Randall

Racist tip

A customer at a Thai restaurant in Redondo Beach scrawled a racist message on his bill rather than leave a customary tip, reports NBC LA.

A photo of that message has gone viral on Twitter and many are reacting angrily.

The waitress at the Bamboo Thai Bistro is here in the U.S. legally on a visa and hopes to attain a green card and support her two children.

The note read “tip for U.S. Citizens only.”

Co-workers were quick to defend the waitress who wondered if she did anything wrong to upset the customer.

“She’s one of the best employees here in my opinion,” said co-worker Adison. “The thing is she’s paying her taxes, and not getting any benefits of a U.S. citizen, and then she’s going to get slammed by this guy.”

You can hear about some of the reaction on social media in the report below from NBC LA.
