The waitress, Toni Christina Jenkins, went on to post an image of the receipt on Facebook and YouTube.
“This is what I got as a tip last night…so happy to live in the proud southern states…God Bless America, land of the free and home of the low class racists of Tennessee,” Jenkins wrote underneath the picture.
The encounter has now evolved into a $1 million lawsuit – but Jenkins isn’t the one who filed it. Instead, the customer, Devin Barnes, has filed a lawsuit against Jenkins and Red Lobster in which he claims that Jenkins slandered his name and misused his personal information.
He goes on to claim that his reputation has suffered lasting damage because of Red Lobster’s “willful and malicious…omissions to act” in failing to keep Jenkins from using his name and information.
