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)

Full title: Man accused of writing 'none n*****' in the tip line of his check from a black waitress denies writing it and hires a handwriting expert who backs him up
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 cant get a sample from her.”
Maybe 30 minutes of waterboarding might yield one! ;)
Racist tip lines: the new noose.
10k for that word?
We’re gonna need a bigger swear/obscenity jar.
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.
Was it in cursive?
Just mad she didn’t get a tip
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).
“Shes getting it from a bunch of nit-wits all over the country because they feel sorry for her.”
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.
