Worst tippers ever: Christian couple stiffs gay waiter, call him ‘fag’

Customers left a shocking anti-gay message for a server who provided excellent service in a Kansas City restaurant

Worst tippers ever: Christian couple stiffs gay waiter, call him ‘fag’
25 October 2013

A Christian couple have caused outrage after refusing to tip a gay waiter and calling him a ‘fag’.

The waiter, 20, had just finished giving excellent service to a couple in a suburban Kansas City Italian restaurant.

But instead of receiving a tip from the couple, he received a nasty message.

‘Thank you for your service, it was excellent,’ it said.

‘That being said, we cannot in good conscience tip you, for your homosexual lifestyle is an affront to GOD.

‘Queers do not share in the wealth of GOD, and you will not share in ours.

‘We hope you will see the tip your fag choices made you lose out on, and plan accordingly.

‘It is never too late for GOD’S love, but none shall be spared for fags. May GOD have mercy on you.’

The young waiter’s mother, who also works at the restaurant, said the couple were lucky she had not seen the message before they left.

‘When this Mama Bear gets her hackles up,’ she told The Pitch, ‘the claws come out.’

When the story spread on social media, supporters of the waiter began pouring into the restaurant Carrabba’s Italian Grill.

And hopefully leaving pretty good tips.

According to KCTV, a local pastor Marvin Baker is among his supporters.

‘I was angry. I said this is not Christian as I know it,’ he said.

‘I said, “We are here to meet your celebrity. The one who was mistreated.” She said, “That’s my son. Would you like a table or booth?” I said, “Wherever he’s serving”.’
