A waiter in Texas named “Khalil” was called a terrorist by a customer who left him no tip, prompting the restaurant to ban the customer and allowing the waiter to raise about $1,000 in sympathy tips from Facebook.

On Sunday night, the restaurant said in a statement that the incident was faked and that Cavil no longer worked there. The statement neither explained how the restaurant learned this or whether Mr. Cavil was fired or resigned.

The following day, Cavil admitted in an interview that the incident at Saltgrass Steak House was all a hoax — “I did lie to you,” he told the paper.

“I did write it,” Mr. Cavil told the Odessa paper, refusing to explain why. “I don’t have an explanation. I made a mistake. There is no excuse for what I did.”

The fake story won national attention and Mr. Cavil said he hoped to spur conversation “about this hatred that is still going on, that is still here and prevalent.”

Mr. Turney said the formerly banned customer had been contacted and told he could come back “to dine on us.”

He also said Monday that he had nearly finished returning all the money donated to him under false pretenses.

It is bad enough to make up a hate crime against yourself, but to blame it on an innocent customer? He is lucky that the customer was never named.

Very immature action. Should be repurcussion for this sort of behaviour. Maybe a fine or a lot of community service.

He has harmed an innocent person's reputation and caused them stress. He has also armed far right people with ammunition, they have a reason now to treat Muslims like the boy who cried wolf.

This keeps happening at an alarming rate. Seems to people are so desperate to be oppressed to be welcome by the radical left that they’ll create imaginary hate crimes to get attention. Isn’t this muchowzen syndrome? Lol

Same thing happened with the black waitress in Virginia (or was it Georgia?) who claimed customers left a racist comment on the bill. Turned out the comment was written on a reprint of the bill made after the establishment had closed. Oops. But the woman had already accumulated thousands of dollars in donations as well as international media attention before this eventually came to light. What's worse is that most of the major media outlets didn't even retract their articles or provide updates.

There needs to be more caution when running stories like these. There's often a distinct lack of verification, and the 'victim' can easily be making things up, but news outlets will still run the story as though it's fact.

If reality doesn't confirm your prejudice, just make something up.

This is typical of Muslims. They hate non-Muslim Indians and they fake it because they dislike their socioeconomic conditions. Even in the US they are poorer than Hindus.

I'm actually Hindu and Indian. I've decided to spend some time of TSR fighting what I perceive to be Anti-India sentiment like this Texas waiter is spewing out.

There has been they steady flow of these cases over the last year and a half and it would be interesting to see a definitive list of them collected.
This certainly appears to be kudos to be gained on the left from painting yourself a victim.

your comment is very prejudicial.

being wealthier equates to what exactly?

muslims value character - good manners, morals, etc. not money. most religions reject materialism.

and im pretty sure muslim Americans are the least likely religious group to commit crimes, and their women are the highest educated amongst any other religious group.

Muslims are the main threat to India. They embody the concept of Anti-India.
