...restaurant and waitress after handwriting experts finds he DIDN'T write the racial slur
Red Lobster waitress Christina Jenkins posted a picture of a check she received last month with 'none n*****' written on the tip line Devin Barnes, the 21-year-old customer she was serving, says he didn't write the racial slur He even hired a forensics expert to evaluate his handwriting who found no connection to the handwriting on the check Mr Barnes has now filed a $1 million lawsuit against both Jenkins and Red Lobster By DAILY MAIL REPORTER PUBLISHED: 19:23 EST, 23 May 2014 | UPDATED: 05:29 EST, 24 May 2014 626 shares 124View comments 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.

Paging Christina Jenkins....Tawana Brawley called, she wants her schtick back. It will be interesting to see how this case plays out. If nothing else, hopefully, this fraud, and Red Lobster for their "willful and malicious omissions" will be made examples out of.

Were I a restaurant owner or manager, this kind of thing would have me looking for reasons not to hire members of that ethnic group.

So lemme see if I got this right...The “real” crime occurred when Red “Dead” Lobster and this waiter shouted “racism” about words written on a receipt, which turned out to be forensically incorrect, to assume on their part, to be written by the customer in question...

So the “customer” got the handwriting reviewed, on their dime, and it turns out to be not the “customers” handwriting???

What amazes me is that beyond this part of the story, is if this sees ANY more press, because of the scientific finding that the customer did not write what was alleged by the waiter, and subsequently backed up by the restaurant chain...

Did the restaurant or waiter ask for any charges, if any, could be filed against the customer??? Was a police report filed???

If so the crime rests upon a false accusation, of something that is technically not a crime???

I can only wonder what, if anything will be done by the DA in this case??? The political ramifications, the social ramifications, the race pimping that might have occurred, and not reported on so far, is at stake...

Too bad we will probably not hear the rest of the story because it will not be reported on, now that the customer in this case fought back against this lie...

On a side note, I wonder if the “tip” line was filled out, but not determined to be enough by the waiter in question, therefore the racial slur was noted, to cover up shoddy service by the employee???

The tables were turned when the customer fought back...

See, now that would be considered a crime, if it could be proven that your actions were done because of that belief...

The EEOC would be all over you like white on rice...

Ohhh, but that right there is racist...;-)

It was a ‘to go’ order so ‘none’ was purposely written on that tip line.

I read somewhere that an independent forensic handwriting team said it was probably he waitresses... Couldn’t rule her out, or something. (Paraphrasing)

Let the racial polarization games begin. Soon people will not want to be served by anyone who is a person of color.
This is Obama’s goal, racial polarization.The days of the black waiter/waitress are drawing to a close.Who would want to hire all of these problems? ( Black nationalism-Self caused racial discrimination?)

If I were him, I’d be asking my lawyer to investigate the potential of a Federal Crime by the waitress (and RL) for using interstate commerce to commit slander and fraud.

That credit card slip was most likely an interstate processing operation. It’s what the government do to you.

Oh my gosh, you read my mind. If this keeps up, certain members of this ethnic group will add to that group’s unemployment statistics. Some just have to push the envelope and hurt everyone.

“Let the racial polarization games begin. Soon people will not want to be served by anyone who is a person of color.”

We’re probably at that point already; now restaurants won’t HIRE anyone who is a person of a certain color.

“This is Obama’s goal, racial polarization.The days of the black waiter/waitress are drawing to a close.Who would want to hire all of these problems? ( Black nationalism-Self caused racial discrimination?)”

Most companies are already there; departments that were staffed by blacks twenty years ago now staffed exclusively by Hispanics (with an American supervising, to spell things correctly).

Well, if I'm not mistaken, the young "lady" has already received money from this alsharptoning, and being a gibsmedat adherent, whose phone, housing and health care is assured by obama, it is a sure bet that she has already spent it.

As far as the restaurant, most likely they will be on the hook (or their insurer, at least), which will result in prices going up...therefore, you will pay for all of it, in one way or the other.

Me, I'll do my part by never eating at a Red Lobster and avoiding those establishments that employ the alsharpton gibsmedat persons.

Racist? No, not really. I was never particularly concerned with race until the gibsmedats started shoving it in my face on every damned issue they had.

Sickle Cell Anemia: Whitey's fault.

Shortened life span of black males: Whitey's fault.

Traviljamal can't read: Whitey's fault.

I can go on and on, but most of the readers of this forum have heard it again and again and again, and most, like me are not inherently racist...just disgusted with a class of people that so readily accept the gibsmedat attitude, yet curse and demonize the very people that are actually trying to help them improve their lives.

LBJ had no idea of the monster he had created when he shoved The Great Society down our throats.

(Or perhaps he did...it's too late now.)

This has become easy to do as money gets tight; I can help my bottom line and keep my money out of some racial malcontent’s hands...

I eat out regularly, I always tip in cash and for the tip line I write “in cash”. Harder to commit fraud.

Employers are responsible for what their employees do on the job, broadly speaking.

They can turn around and sue the employee.

The employer has deep pockets, the employee not so much.

After violating restaurant policy, card issuer policy, state law, federal law, she still has a job?

“After the completion of a full investigation into this matter, Miss Jenkins returned to work.”

I hope the couple immediately canceled that card. I would be watching every account and card I have after an incident like this. There are a lot of “end vs means” progressives that would destroy your life in a moment just for the sport.

I am not surprised that the handwriting expert said it was not the customer’s writing.

NOW- I want the handwriting compared to the waitress.....

Then I would up the ante in the lawsuit to millions more.

i could not agree more, a spot-on post.

My poor lower middle class family was never of the 93% lockstep voting gibsmedat al(not so)sharp-toning society (you know who U B, and U ain’t anglo saxon).

Thanks to my parents hard work and non-parasite metality they instilled in me, i have become the hated white privledged majority who are racist and owe reparations.

When you are given ObammyPhones by the halfrican along with EBT credit cards (because food stamps are demeaning), just who is the slave?

keep’n it real in a gibsmedat world.

It might be cheaper in the long run to go charter a service, go and catch your own lobsters and consume them on your own terms...

The restaurant chain really is going to become “Dead Lobster” now...

I say good riddance...
