A Tennessee man who was accused of using a racial slur on a receipt at a Red Lobster restaurant last year is suing the restaurant chain and the waitress who cashed in on the incident after she posted a copy of the receipt on the Internet.
Devin Barnes, 21, claims he never wrote the racial slur on the receipt, and that the negative attention he received as a result of the way Toni Christina Jenkins - the waitress who claims to have received the slur - publicized the incident is slanderous.
In Barnes' suit, filed in Williamson County Circuit Court, he claims Jenkins slandered him by misusing his personal information, and that Red Lobster's 'willful and malicious ... omissions to act' by failing to prevent Jenkins from using his name and information 'to gain publicity and money' has caused lasting damage to his reputation.....
The handwriting analyst found that 'no significant handwriting characteristics similarities' were found between the questioned 'total' entry line and the handwriting samples provided by Barnes and his wife, the Tennessean reports.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline shortly after the incident, Jenkins said she believes Barnes when he says he didn't write the slur. She says she only posted the picture at all 'to make a comment about racism,' not to draw attention to herself....
In the weeks following Jenkins' posting the photo on the web, the left-wing blog AddictingInfo.org started an online fundraiser for her that raised more than $10,000 - money Jenkins later said she planned to use to buy a car....
Red Lobster said in a statement issued Friday. 'After the completion of a full investigation into this matter, Miss Jenkins returned to work.'
Barnes is seeking $1 million in his suit against Jenkins and the restaurant.

what do I do with my “honkey” receipt?
There was a lesbia waitress who did the same thing, turned out to be a hoax.
All these news reports we hear of nooses found in public places, which we later learned were hoaxes.
Lesbians painted anti homosexual graffiti on their own house, to make it seem that hateful elements in their community didn’t want them there. That turned out that the lesbians themselves vandalized their own house to create the.incident.
What does it say about those who create these hoaxes, to try to prove that we live in such a hate filled world?
What does it say about the rest of us, that conservatives are NOT perpetrating these acts against people???
Meanwhile there is still no more news on the Ypsilanti lesbian who was supposedly beaten in a hate crime attack by 3 men on April 1st.
Will the racial insensitivity never end?
When busted, these perps always come up with the same excuse:
She says she only posted the picture at all 'to make a comment about racism,' not to draw attention to herself....
Don't you think just once they could come up with an excuse just a little more original?
Jenkins left a caption on the photo that was uploaded to her Facebook page that read ‘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.’
Then move. May I suggest Red Hampshire? They need more diversity.
A lot of blacks love victim hood. It has proven profitable to many.
Works for me.
IMO the restaurant should not be culpable unless a member of their corporate staff wrote the slur (highly unlikely). And the waitress should be liable only if she wrote the slur. She should not be punished for making it known that it appeared on the receipt.
Her comments make me highly suspicious that she wrote the slur.
Yes, right after they change the name of the Washington Redskins...
The receipt was owned by the restaurant and had confidential information identifying the customer. The restaurant may indeed be liable for this. The customer has made a claim that he never even wrote it, yet he was slandered using this receipt. Sounds like a good legal case to me. Let it move forward.
Good for him, I’m sick of reading these stories concocted by leftists to further their agenda. If it isn’t a racist message then it’s a homophobic one. This is how you fight back: Through their wallet.
We know what Jesse Jackson used to do to white customers.
It’s more subtle now, more insidious, and the effects are nearly impossible to erase. Much more difficult to detect at the point of origin.
Racial warfare by the wait staff, unpunished by management. Red Lobster is currently in the tank, bankruptcy looming. This will not help.
Me, I’ll eat elsewhere for seafood now
No question in my mind...
So then after the completion of a full investigation into this matter in which Miss Jenkins admitted to violating company policy by posting guest information online -- slanderous information at that and benefitting financially to the tune of $10,000 -- she returns to work after months of paid leave with no repercussions.
Unbelievable -- this is a company that needs to be boycotted into bankruptcy.
What’s next? Honky Sack?
Red Lobster is trying to walk on the edge of a razor.
