An outraged Philadelphia restaurant posted a receipt to their Facebook page after Philadelphia Eagles star LeSean McCoy apparently tipped them just twenty cents on a $62 meal.
PYT restaurant in Philadelphia decided to post the picture after the manager claimed McCoy was given impeccable service, but still tipped a measly 0.03% of the bill.
The bill total was $61.56 and McCoy and his friends decided that just $0.20 was a suitable tip.
The decision to post the receipt has been lambasted on social media, with a number of Eagles fans jumping to McCoy’s defence. Others even claimed that they had waited on McCoy previously and he had always been a good tipper.
The restaurant owner wasn’t finished though and took to Facebook once more.
The Twitterati were again out in force and here are some of the picks of the tweets.
I’m surprised we haven’t seen a kickstarter yet to raise the money for a tip for the PYT waiter that got stiffed by McCoy.

Looking forward to the inevitable moment when McCoy gives that PYT server a signed jersey. — Patrick Wall (@ByPatrickWall) September 8, 2014
hahaha PYT clowning LeSean McCoy for leaving a “lousy” tip when they’re pretty much known for their lousy service

I’m mostly upset LeSean even went to PYT. — Kevin McKenzie (@AmusingMyBouche) September 8, 2014
McCoy has spoken about the issue, and it’s believed he was very unhappy with the service.
Asked LeSean McCoy about the restaurant receipt thing. “It’s bull****, man,” he said. Declined request to elaborate.

On McCoy receipt thing: my understanding is, he was really ticked about service. But org wishes he’d handled it differently. He understands — Les Bowen (@LesBowen) September 8, 2014
Still, a $0.20 tip when you’re one of the highest paid running backs in the NFL with a net worth of nearly $45 million? Frosty.
