Man accused of writing 'none n*****' in tip line of his check from black waitress denies it...
The London Daily Mail ^ | October 19, 2013 | Ashley Collman

The Red Lobster customer accused of writing 'none n*****' on the tip line of his check is so confident he didn't make the slur that he hired a forensics expert to evaluate his handwriting.

The forensics expert evaluated both 20-year-old Devin Barnes' handwriting and that of his wife and concluded: 'There is evidence to indicate that Devin Barnes did not write the total entry. No significant handwriting characteristic similarities were noted.'

Now Mr Barnes and his wife plan on taking legal action against the chain, after receiving numerous death threats when the photo went viral.

'A lot of people on the Internet who I don't know are calling me a racist and I'm thinking people have their own opinion but I know I am not a racist. I don't see color. I have many mixed color friends,' he told WATE.

The photo was posted last month by 19-year-old Red Lobster waitress Christina Jenkins.

'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,' she wrote on her Facebook page.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Miss Jenkins described what happened the afternoon she served Mr Barnes and his wife.

'They were extremely rude, but I introduced myself to them and they didn't respond. When I came to take their order they simply told me they wanted their food and to put everything in a to-go box. I offered them dessert but they told me abruptly that they just wanted the check.

'When I went back to the table they had gone and left the receipt and had written in the comments.'(continued)

She only cares about $$.. I hear she got 10 grand.

I have no doubt this man did not do it.

She did it. To bad they can’t get a sample from her.

Who paid her that money, Red Lobster, their insurance company or someone else? And why?

“To bad they can’t get a sample from her.”

Maybe 30 minutes of waterboarding might yield one! ;)

What a crock. Now she’s getting thousands of dollars from people all over the country simply because she was called the ‘N’-word.

She’s getting it from a bunch of nit-wits all over the country because they feel sorry for her.

Did she fill out a job app? There’s your writing sample right there.

Yup. They took the food to go. No sense paying a tip if you’re not eating there. Guy got a call and couldn’t wait for the food, so there was no food served. The waitress is the real racist, adding the slur on the receipt to get sympathy (and dollars).

I need to get some nit-wits to feel sorry for me!

Good to see you PBF, I’m sure you are enjoying “Nashville” - I LOVE that show like no other.

I saw the unedited photo last month.

The small “e” in “none” and “N****r” really did look like the same person had written both letters.

However, the small “n” in “none” and the cap “N” in “N****r” look quite different to me.

I’d like to see the surveillance video, too.

It must have cost the man a small fortune to hire a forensic handwriting analyst.

Maybe he can recover his costs via a defamation suit.

I don’t believe this even for a second, especially happening at a Red Lobster. I’d say the waitress is trying to get something for her ‘color’ that she didn’t earn. IOW, a lying troublemaker trading on her race.

What I will and do believe are the reports of black patrons on election night 2008 writing “no tip white bitch” and the like on their checks at Waffle Houses etc.

She can go bark that tripe up another tree. No sale here.

“to bad they get a sample of her hand writing”

They could from her employment application or other employment forms.

She has learned from Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson on how to play the shake down game. This is why I stopped tipping black waiters. She knew her story would get a response from probably mostly white people with a racial guilt complex.

“none n****r” doesn’t even make sense.

I’m guessing he wrote “none” in the tip line and she added the rest.

You stopped serving all black waiters because of Sharpton and Jackson????? That's really sad and pathetic. You should be ashamed of yourself.

And most nooses are placed by the “victim” of the supposed racist attack. No surprise here.

There should be a special crime for this sort of nonsense. Turning peoples lives upside down and allowing them to get death threats for something they didn’t do (a word no less!) is truly evil.

He probably should have drawn a line through the tip spot and put 000000 over the line. That is what I do if I put the tip on the card instead of the table.

Another bogus racial “hate crime.”

That file is getting thick.

Isn't this "news", like, months old?

...and just now the accused is allowed by the UK press to refute a most likely false allegation? Pathetic.
