HOAX: Server Faked Racially Charged ‘We Don’t Tip Terrorist’ Note

A Texas waiter has been served after news surfaced that he faked a racially charged supposedly left for him on a check by a customer.

“After further investigation, we have learned that our employee fabricated the entire story,” Terry Turney, COO of Saltgrass Restaurant said in a statement to USA Today.

The waiter, Khalil Cavil, posted the following photo to his Facebook page in an apparent publicity stunt:

The post quickly went viral after Cavil claimed that “this racism, and this hatred still exists.”

The customer who was blamed for leaving the note was banned from the restaurant for life. Cavill has since been fired.

“The customer has been contacted and invited back to our restaurant to dine on us,” said Turney after learning the incident was faked. “Racism of any form is intolerable, and we will always act swiftly should it occur in any of our establishments. Falsely accusing someone of racism is equally disturbing.”

“I did write it,” Cavil told Odessa American. “I don’t have an explanation. I made a mistake. There is no excuse for what I did. I’m sorry. I deeply made a huge, big mistake. And I’m in the process of getting the help that I need.”
