Customers at a restaurant in the US are rallying to support a black waitress who received a racist handwritten note instead of a tip stating, “Great Service, don’t tip black people”.
This peculiar incident took place at Anita’s New Mexico Style Cafe in Virginia. Two white customers have left a receipt after restaurant server Kelly Carter had served them breakfast to them.
The waitress said the couple appeared to be in their mid-20s and had spent US$30 (S$43) on food. Carter says there was no indication the couple were unhappy with her for any reason during the incident.
Since then, however, customers have started requesting Carter as their server and some are even stopping by to give her hugs and money. Her regular customers have been stopping at the eatery to give her hugs.
