“Racist Note” Left to Waitress Instead of Tip Was Fake

A Virginian waitress who lied about a “racist note” she received instead of a tip managed to convince donors from across the country into giving thousands of dollars.

Kelly Carter received thousands of hard earned money in donations from people who were moved by the publicized claim that she was stiffed a tip from a customer who left her a racist note instead.

She faked the note, fooled the suckers, and took their money.

The Daily Caller reports:

Kelly Carter, a waitress at Anita’s New Mexico Cafe in Ashburn, Va., claimed that a white man stiffed her on his $30.52 restaurant bill and wrote “Great service, don’t tip black people” at the bottom of his receipt.

But the receipt was fabricated, says Daniel Hebda, a lawyer for the patron.

Hebda said in a statement Friday that his client did leave Carter a small tip — one penny — because her service was poor, not because she is black.

This woman used misdirected sympathy to get a huge profit.

The customer wasn’t impressed by Carter’s “terrible service,” so the waitress penned in the racist note at the bottom of the receipt herself, before going public with her lie and raking in donations.

The Daily Caller continues:

Websites like the Huffington Post, Raw Story, the Daily Mail, the New York Daily News and others posted the story as an example of racism in America. The Loudon County NAACP became involved, and a Virginia man opened up an online fundraiser that brought in more than $3,600 for Carter.

Carter’s boss, Tommy Tellez, said last month, after Carter reported the receipt, that customers were showing up to the restaurant and just “dropping cash off” for Carter.

I was appalled, though it’s kind of in line with the political landscape,” Tellez said at the time.

Though Carter’s story went viral, there were some early indications that her claim did not quite add up. For one, the receipt she posted online was printed several hours after Anita’s New Mexico Cafe closed. The receipt also bore markings showing that it was a reprint of an original receipt.

As of yet, it is not clear what will happen to the donated money.
