Racist Red Lobster receipt may be hoax, analysts say ("Victim" wrote it?)
The Daily Caller ^ | October 30, 2013 | Chuck Ross

Posted on 10/30/2013 1:58:56 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The racial slur a Red Lobster waitress claimed to receive on a receipt in lieu of tip may have been a hoax, according to two separate handwriting analyses.

One handwriting analyst concluded that whoever wrote “none” on the tip line was not the same person who wrote the racial epithet. The second analyst believes the racist comment could have been written by the waitress herself.

Toni Christina Jenkins, a server at a Red Lobster in Franklin, Tennessee, posted a picture on her Facebook page of a receipt with the word “none” written in the area usually reserved for a tip.

Below that, the word “Nigger” was scrawled.

The receipt clearly showed the name of the customer, Devin Barnes, who is white. Jenkins, who is black, said that she was not aware that Barnes’ name was shown on the receipt and posted it online to make a point about racism, not to target Barnes.

“God Bless America, land of the free and home of the low class racists of Tennessee,” wrote Jenkins, a 19-year-old nursing student, on her Facebook page along with the picture.

But Barnes, 20, denied writing the derogatory word.

“I do not approve of the use of that type of talk, not now or ever,” wrote Barnes in a note shortly after the story went viral. As news spread locally and nationally, Barnes also says he received threats....

There have been reports of black people finding nooses, alleged to have been placed by racists. It turned out that the black people themselves planted the nooses, to gain sympathy.

There was the case of the 2 lesbians who painted anti-homosexual graffiti on their own garage dooor, to allegedly show what a bigoted community they lived in. It turned out that they had painted the graffiti themselves.

My BS meter goes off when I hear stories such as these.

I wouldn’t normally suggest this, but I’d say he has a case against Red Lobster as well. It was a Red Lobster Receipt, why was a waitress allowed to remove it from the restaurant and post it on Facebook?

According to the article she already spent the money - on a new car.

She spent that money before you ever posted this thread. Typical of her type to come into money then blow it quickly. I knew a girl that got $40,000 and spent $25,000 on a Disneyworld trip for her and her friends. The rest was gone by buying a car she later totaled and did not have insurance for. $40 large, gone in less than 3 months.

And then there was the lesbian who cut herself, punched her eye, wrote some epithets on the walls, and lit herself and house on fire. Which was proven to be all her own doing.

Maybe not. What security measures does Red Lobster have in place? Are their credit card numbers subject to the same abuse?

I’d say Red Lobster has a bit of explaining to do.

Dayum! I once got back my contributions to a pension fund (about $30,000, after paying taxes TWICE on it) and lived almost 3 years on the proceeds and a straight commission job. I’m a cash car buyer since the 90’s but have never bought one with a lump sum type payment, just savings.

Ya, I remember that lesbian also.

see, there have been many documented cases in which members of aggrieved minority groups allege bigotry, and it turns out they pulled off hoaxes themselves.

Why do they do this? Are they so beholden to the liberal theology that gays, ethnic minorities, etc. are so discriminated against, that they have to invent incidents of hateful bigotry, when these things don’t actually happen?

I guess I’m not liberal and don’t understand. But shouldn’t these minorities be happy to live in a country in which these incidents don’t actually happen? Aren’t they happy to live in a country in which blacks,homosexuals, and everyone, is so free to live their lives as they see fit?

Or are they liberal, and is making a political statement, even creating falsehoods, more important than anything else???

And the lesbian in the NW, who cut slurs into her skin and posted slurs onto her walls.

The homosexual community rallied around it, saying, “Well, it COULD have happened.”

Do these people want permanent victimhood????

Saying something could have happened, that didn’t actually happen, seems to escape my thought process.

These things aren’t happening, and these minority groups are free to live their lives. Nobody is doing these things to them. Yet we’re supposed to be sympathetic to a lie, because it could have happened?

I don’t understand the thought process of the liberal mind.

I often pay with a credit card but leave a cash tip, so will put a line through the place where it says tip. Someone else doing the same thing might put 'none' there if leaving a cash tip. I figure the server would much rather have a cash tip than to have to get paid back through the restaurant.

She didn't know his name was on the receipt that he signed ¿

He will probably sue Red Lobster. They’re the only ones with money in this case. You gotta feel for them, though....what’s a company to do in a case like this?

Those two scribbles were written by different people. People don't change their handwriting style, use less pressure when writing, and on a receipt turn it 30 degrees up.

I want this guy to sue the waitress personally, before suing Red Lobster.

The second analyst believes the racist comment could have been written by the waitress herself.

and there is a picture of her rubbing it in the faces of the organizer and 1000 of her contributors.

I imagine the customer got horrible service and wrote none to convey her dissatisfaction.

And of course, it couldn't have been her below par service that got her 'none' for a tip, it must have been racism!

This is what Al & Jesse teach Black kids today.

If you can't find racism, just make it up. ..works just as well. Cha-Ching!

Let’s not forget the college professor or teacher or whatever in Kalipornia who totally messed up her car and blamed it on homophones or something.

Witnesses said she drove it to the campus in that condition.

Yep, she defaced her own car.

Yup.

See all the evil people they think are out there opposed to them,

do not do this stuff to them,

but THEIR WORLDVIEW believes that’s what they do,

and they wonder why it doesn’t happen to them,

so that they can then become a celebrity victim/fighter,

and decide tehy will just go ahead and manufacture their own crisis incident,

and have no problem that innocent people/groups are being blamed for doing it.

These people need to be jailed as long as actual attackers would. A real bunch of crimes have been committed, including lying to police, attempting to incite violence against others, destruction of property, conspiracy with ONESELF to FRAME innocent groups/people, and anything else they can throw at them.

this kind of stuff is done on purpose to divide, destroy reputations of groups they hate. This is a hate crime by these people on others they hate. Plain and simple, they are trying to frame other people and groups they literally hate enough to do this.

JAIL. LONG TIME. NO PAROLE.

The couple just got there, ordered, got a phone call and had to leave. They then asked to change the order to take-out, and paid once the take-out order was ready. No service, no tip, so the customer wrote "none" for tip. Stupid waitress gets pissed over it, even though she provided no service. Customer did nothing wrong writing "none" for a take-out order. The waitress added the slur later. She should be sued by the customer for posting his name on the internet with a libelous claim.

It wasn't even this. He wrote "none" on the tip line because it was a carry-out order.

I always draw a line and write “cash on table”.

Recently there was a case of a homosexual server who said he waited on someone who left no tip but commented on his sexual orientation on the receipt. A homosexual pastor stepped in to do an Al Sharpton. When I read it, I wondered if that might not have been a hoax.
