‘We Don’t Tip Black People’

October 3, 2018

Stiffing a waitress on her tip is bad enough, but giving a racist excuse is even worse.


Ask Jasmine Brewer, a waitress who works at Applebee’s in Radcliff, Kentucky. 

Earlier this month, she said, four customers didn’t tip her on a $50 order. Instead, the diners left a handwritten note on a napkin: “We don’t tip black people.”

The 26-year-old Brewer said the party responsible for the racist note consisted of two well-dressed couples.

“It looked like they were having a rough day, like they had just been to a funeral,” Brewer told HuffPost. “They ordered two 2-for-$20 meals, two Mountain Dews and two sweet teas.”

Brewer said she did everything possible to make the experience pleasant, even telling


the group “Have a nice day” as they left.

“They said, ‘Have a nice day too!’” Brewer recalled. She didn’t know the customers had a problem with her until she saw the note.

“I did everything I could to make it good and in the end, I was the problem,” she said, bemused.

The waitress said her co-workers were shocked by the racist note, especially her manager.
